Canterbury of New Zealand officially launched its Vodafone Warriors range tonight in front of an audience including a number of the club’s loyal members, other special guests and Vodafone Warriors staff.
The function at Mount Smart Stadium underlined Canterbury of New Zealand’s unstinting commitment to the Vodafone Warriors with confirmation it has extended its partnership with the club by another four years to the end of the 2021 season.
Canterbury of New Zealand was the foundation apparel partner to the then-Auckland Warriors when they entered the Australian Rugby League competition in 1995.
Canterbury of New Zealand has a proven reputation for its innovation and providing sporting teams’ leading-edge apparel for the best possible performance, utilising world-class design, technological expertise and a rich vein of experience, on and off the field.
“At Canterbury of New Zealand, we continue to push the design and technical boundaries to deliver high performance garments that give players the edge,” said Canterbury of New Zealand’s Asia Pacific MD Jamie Meikleham.
“We also strive to ensure everything we do has the fan at heart with the best quality, authentic ranges they can wear with pride.”
Vodafone Warriors CEO Cameron George said the club was thrilled Canterbury of New Zealand continued to show the level of its commitment to the club.
“We place the highest value on our association with Canterbury of New Zealand and what they bring to the club,” he said.
