Delta sponsors the Super 15 Highlanders
28 March 2012
Delta is pleased to announce its sponsorship of Super 15 rugby team the Highlanders, providing local, national and international exposure for the infrastructure specialist in energy, water, waste, communications, transport and land.
Delta Chief Executive Grady Cameron says, “We’re proud to partner the Highlanders for the 2012 season. They’ve had an outstanding start with four wins out of five and are showing the kind of spirit, skill and determination that makes for successful teams both on and off the field.
“Like rugby, business is a team sport. We see the partnership as a great fit with our commitment to customers, employees and the communities in which we work and live. We share the Highlanders values of accountability, hard work and respect.
“Headquartered in Dunedin, Delta operates throughout New Zealand with a strong base in the South Island. Our support for the Highlanders is in step with our ambition to grow Delta as the infrastructure specialist. As an international competition, Super 15 rugby is watched live by millions - making Delta visible throughout New Zealand and the world.
“What’s more, Highlanders’ home games in Dunedin are played at Forsyth Barr Stadium which has a special affinity with Delta where we installed the playing surface, electricity supply system and water infrastructure. Every time the Highlanders run out at home, they play on sports turf grown by us.
“As Executive Partner of the Highlanders, Delta’s sponsorship includes the Delta logo on the back of the team playing shorts, promotion and advertising at home games and opportunities for joint Delta and Highlanders involvement in community projects. We’re looking forward to a great season backing the Highlanders,” says Mr Cameron.
