Splice Construction re-sign, Power Farming come aboard as new partner of ND

Published on 16 Dec 2019

Splice Construction has re-signed as a partner with Northern Districts Cricket for the next two seasons.

A well-established partner for the past four years, Splice's continued support will assist in the administration, development and promotion of cricket across the Northern Districts region.

Northern Districts chief executive Ben MacCormack was understandably thrilled at the extension of the Splice Construction partnership.

"Splice Construction have a deep desire to connect with the communities they operate within, and we will continue to look to do that with them as it is a shared ambition," MacCormack said.

Once again, Splice Construction will be the major partner of the Knights, and MacCormack is hoping this will spur them on to further successes.

"In addition to the community partnership, their support of the Knights shows a commitment to one of the most successful teams in the region over the last 2 years," he said.

As the major partner of the Knights, cricket enthusiasts, players and fans will see the Splice Construction brand feature prominently on Knights Super Smash uniforms and in-ground at Seddon Park and Bay Oval.

"The boys will once again be aiming to do Splice proud," added MacCormack.

Splice will also be the pathways partner for umpires and age-groups, which will include them having naming rights for the men's under-17 and under-19 Northern Districts sides.

Beyond on-field activities, the partnership will also see Northern Districts and Splice team-up for several match day activations at Super Smash matches including a donate a bat scheme and the supply of tickets for families in hardship; underlining both organisations' commitment to providing an enjoyable environment for the whole community to experience cricket.

Along with Splice, ND have announced a new partnership with Power Farming Holdings Limited.

The partnership will see the tractor and agricultural machinery provider support Northern Districts' premier men's team, the Knights.

Power Farming and Northern Districts will be celebrating the new partnership with a Power Farming Pavilion Zone at the Knights first home Dream11 Super Smash match on Monday, December 16.

"We are proud supporters of sport across the country and saw a partnership with Northern Districts as a natural fit given the breadth of the region they cover and also their connection with people's recreation over the summer period," marketing director of Power Farming Brett Maber said.

"Getting along to Dream11 Super Smash games at Seddon Park or Bay Oval, along with watching at home, is becoming a real part of Kiwis' summers, and we feel privileged to be a part of that" Maber concluded.

Northern Districts chief executive Ben MacCormack is thrilled with the new partnership.

"Being a company with local origins, it is great that Power Farming are keen to help the Knights succeed on the domestic stage and we are so happy to partner with them," he said.

"The guys will be aiming to do Power Farming proud."

The three-year partnership also provides space for Power Farming's influence on cricket to grow through enhancing the visibility and accessibility of the sport in rural regions, something Power Farming, a company with rural roots, is passionate about.
