The Richmond Rovers Rugby League club has today announced the renewed alliance with Waterview Laundromat as a minor sponsor of the Richmond Premiers.
Waterview Laundromat, who have a historic relationship with Richmond Rovers rugby league stretching back over many years, have re-signed a new one year agreement that will see the Richmond’s Premier team proudly sporting the Waterview Laundromat logo on the Richmond Premiers playing strip.
Richmond Chairman Nigel Vagana stated, ‘’We are delighted to re-join forces with an iconic Auckland business such as Waterview Laundromat and thrilled that they have committed to being associated with the Richmond Premiers in their Fox Memorial Shield competition quest. We’re really excited about continuing this relationship with a long-time supporter of our club."
"The Premier team is well represented with a number of players training with or having been involved in the Junior Warriors Development team. The club as a whole is evolving with junior and senior player participation at the Richmond club on the rise. We look forward to continuing our great form and with Waterview Laundromat in support of our Premier club team we believe our club will continue to compete in the toughest grassroots competition in New Zealand –the Fox Memorials shield competition in 2022.”
The Richmond Rovers club has been a part of the Auckland’s fabric for over 100 years, with Waterview Laundromat on board this commitment clearly highlights Waterview Laundromat’s loyalty to the region and its premier sporting code.
Waterview Laundromat Business Manager, Divesh Kumar noted the sponsorship further cemented Waterview Laundromat’s commitment to the region and would help grow awareness of the brand across Auckland.
“As Waterview Laundromat’s local supplier for everyday laundry services we’re passionate about our community and making it a strong, vibrant place for us all to live in. Our sponsorship of the Richmond Rovers club and Premier team is proof of this commitment.”
“We’ve been the sponsor of the Richmond Rovers Junior club over many seasons so continuing to sponsor the Richmond Premiers really was a natural progression. We’re proud to be associated with a strong performing organisation like the Richmond Rovers Rugby League & Sports club and we’re looking forward to cheering on our team this season.” Divesh Kumar further stated.
Auckland Rugby League club the Richmond Rovers today announced that LJ Hooker Ponsonby has renewed major sponsorship for the 2022 season as sleeve rights of the Richmond Rovers Premier Team.
The partnership complements the real estate’s relationship with Richmond members who are influential community-engaged residents supporting the first grade side of a Fox Memorial first division team. It also builds on the company’s role as preferred real estate agent for the local Grey Lynn, Ponsonby and Western Springs area which many club members reside in.
Announcing the sponsorship, owner Steven Glucina said backing the Richmond club was a great alignment for the real estate agent where Glucina has been major sponsor of the 2011-2012 Richmond Junior Academy, Richmond’s 2013 Championship Under 20s and the Premier team since 2014.
“Through our partnership with Richmond, the LJ Hooker Ponsonby logo will appear on the Premier team’s playing jerseys, as well as other official team apparel and ground signage at Grey Lynn Park for the 2022 season,” Mr Glucina said.
Richmond club members and supporters can also expect to see plenty of the LJ Hooker Ponsonby brand during the season. As a long-time sponsor of sports across Auckland, LJ Hooker Ponsonby is known for supporting and enhancing spectator and fan experience.
Richmond Chairman Nigel Vagana said he was "delighted to welcome back a good community friend LJ Hooker Ponsonby to the sponsor family."
“The LJ Hooker Ponsonby partnership is a significant 2022 sponsorship agreement for the Richmond club and we welcome them back to the sponsor family. The LJ Hooker Ponsonby brand will take pride of place on both our playing and training apparel,” Mr Vagana said.
Richmond Rovers Rugby League Club is proud to announce the return of sponsor The Surrey Hotel in 2022.
The Surrey Hotel in Grey Lynn has realigned themselves with one of the oldest and largest sports clubs in the inner Auckland city region as a returning sponsor. It is exciting times for the club with the growth of rugby league continuing through the exposure of its players represented in the Vodafone Warriors and International rugby league teams (including woman's grades). This relationship was forged in 2013 when Richmond celebrated its 100th centenary year over the Queen’s birthday weekend. Since then both the Richmond club and The Surrey Hotel have enjoyed many events including Richmond Senior End of Year Award Prize Giving evenings, social club events and Richmond Board meetings.
The Surrey Hotel’s high profile sits comfortably with Richmond’s own profile within the larger Grey Lynn community. Club Chairman Nigel Vagana commented “it is tough for the Richmond Rovers club to maintain our high standards both on the field and off. The generous support of The Surrey Hotel allows us to continue our development. As a local sports club we are continuing to set a high benchmark for our club both on and off the field”. We can only do this off the back of generous sponsors.
Denise King of The Surrey Hotel, added “The Surrey Hotel is delighted to be again partner with one of Grey Lynn’s, if not the greater inner city regions, most successful sports clubs which has had over 50 Kiwi International players developed from this local club. We see it as a great opportunity to assist the club with the development of their junior and senior players from the Richmond juniors ages five up to the Premiers as well as senior Masters (35+ year old) club members. The Richmond club is dedicated to making rugby league accessible and fun for everyone from the social player to those more serious”.
Over recent years the Richmond Rovers club has developed a strong and growing Richmond Junior Academy programme which assists younger players who show talent early on and helps them progress into potentially representing rep teams and maybe even New Zealand one day.
