Waikato Draught Re-sign as Major Sponsor of Chiefs Rugby Club

It is with great excitement that Waikato Draught have announced re-signing with the Chiefs Rugby Club until the end of the 2023 season as a major sponsor.

Waikato Draught has been a proud supporter of rugby in the Waikato for over 80 years and a major sponsor and founding partner of the Chiefs Rugby Club since the first season of Investec Super Rugby in 1996.

Waikato Draught and the Chiefs Rugby Club have a lot of shared values at the core of their organisations such as loyalty, hard work and respect, that have enabled a great partnership over the years. The Gallagher Chiefs play a very active role within the community and Waikato Draught are proud to be affiliated with another iconic local brand with a long and proud history in the region.

Geoffrey Kidd, Waikato Draught Senior Brand Manager stated: “Waikato Draught has strong roots in the region and has always been a proud supporter of local rugby. It’s always been important that we support local organisations that align with our values and give back to the region.”

“Waikato Draught has been a part of some of the most memorable rugby moments in the regions history, with the Gallagher Chiefs back to back title seasons of 2012 and 2013 being right at the top of the list. We are looking forward to the next great chapter of our long standing partnership with the Chiefs,” said Kidd.

Michael Collins, Chiefs Rugby Club Chief Executive said, “Throughout my time with the Chiefs Rugby Club as a player, a captain and now in my current role I have been incredibly impressed and grateful for Waikato Draught’s loyalty and unstinting support for the Club and the Gallagher Chiefs team. As an organisation we are looking forward to them once again standing shoulder to shoulder with us as we continue our wonderful partnership well into the future”.
