We are excited to announce that we are the exclusive New Zealand agency selling sponsorship packages for UFC Auckland on June 11th 2017. The fight card is yet to be announced – but given how quickly the sport is growing worldwide, and the huge following it has in NZ, it promises to be one of the largest sporting events of the year.
This will the second time the world’s premier mixed martial arts organisation has come to New Zealand following the UFC Fight Night in 2014. “The first event was a great night for us,” Joe Carr, UFC’s vice-president and head of international and content, told the NZ Herald on Sunday March 5th. “It sold out – attendance was over 8000, a full house – the response was massive from the fans.” This year’s event is sure to be another quick sell-out.
“This is a great opportunity for a brand to connect with one of the world’s fastest growing sports in terms of popularity. UFC is now mainstream, and we are able to completely tailor the sponsorship packages to fit a brand’s specific objectives and budget.” Will Ward, our Partnerships Director said. He continues, “As well as the event itself, the fighters will be in town the week before, providing a great opportunity for PR activity. Please get in touch to find out more about the opportunities available.”
