SPORT SUPPORTERS DESCRIPTION
For our description, we had to describe and label some the supporters of NZ Sport teams. One of them includes Pepsi. Pepsi supports NBA (National Basketball Association) by giving them free equipment and drinks. They support the NBA so they can increase their market worth. In fact, the next NBA game is in Mexico. Another ‘sports supporter’ is New World (A popular supermarket in NZ). We bet supporters of Netball can guess which sports team this one is. The Silver Ferns. They support the Silver Ferns by giving them discounts at their stores. Do you know why New World supports the Silver Ferns? They support them because it makes sense to support a sport Kiwi’s love. For all the Netball supporters out there, the next game is on the 20th January 2018.
It’s not just companies who support sport teams. Citizens all over the world support sport because they genuinely love the sport and they want to cheer them on. Flava (A radio station) supports the Rugby League World Cup 2017 by giving them accommodation, dining, special mentions and tickets to high class events. They support the RLWC so they get free advertisement. The next rugby league game is in Melbourne. Another great company that supports sport is the ISPS Handa. It supports the All Whites by setting up training camps and giving them equipment. The All Whites’ next game is in Thailand. Wish ‘em luck! Another ‘sports supporter’ is Adidas. You may have heard of them . . . oh, who are we kidding, of course you have! Adidas sponsors the All Blacks by giving them sports equipment and t-shirts. The next All Blacks Game for all you Rugby fans out there is on 26th November 2017. GO ALL BLACKS!!! Our final ‘sports supporter’ is the Accor Hotel Group, they support the Black Caps by giving them accommodation. Their next game is on the 1st of December 2017.
After our research, we have found out that companies and people support sport teams because they genuinely love the sport, they want to get lots of advertisement etc. In the future we think more companies will start supporting sports teams because of the reasons above.
