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.
