As the 2010 rugby league season nears, Vodafone are proud to announce they are renewing their sponsorship of the Vodafone Warriors for a further four years, to the end of the 2014 NRL season. Vodafone New Zealand began their support as principal sponsor of New Zealand's only representative in the NRL back in 1999 and CEO Russell Stanners, is thrilled to offer their long-term support to both the Vodafone Warriors and also their National Youth Competition (NYC) side, the Vodafone Junior Warriors, "Like many New Zealanders, and lots of our customers, we feel very passionate about the Vodafone Warriors, as they are the team that represents our country week in, week out, in the NRL which is clearly one of the most exciting competitions in Australasia," says Russell.

Vodafone Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah said the club was ecstatic about Vodafone's decision to extend their partnership with the club. "We enjoy a fantastic relationship with Vodafone and we are extremely grateful for the backing they provide," says Wayne.

"They've done a wonderful job in developing this sponsorship and have been hugely supportive of us at all times." Vodafone's long term commitment and the use of its technology has helped take the fans closer to the Kiwi NRL club, team and players than ever before.

There are now nearly 50,000 fans that belong to One Tribe, the Vodafone Warriors supporter community that Vodafone created in 2006 to closely connect fans with their heroes and each other via activity on their mobiles, online, television and at the stadium on match days. "The team at Vodafone continue to amaze us with their innovative engagement with the club, fans of the game and their own customers", says Wayne. New captain Simon Mannering will lead the Vodafone Warriors into their 2010 season which starts with a clash against the Gold Coast Titans in Robina on Sunday, March 14.
