New Principal Sponsor Of Magpies Named

3 JULY 2009 - The Hawke's Bay Rugby Union has today announced its new Principal Sponsorship for the Air New Zealand Cup squad.

The Rural Community of Hawke's Bay in conjunction with Progressive Meats will be the Principal Sponsor of the Magpies for the next three years. As a result of the new partnership, the team that competes in the Air New Zealand Cup will from this point again be known as the Hawke's Bay Magpies.

Our Union is celebrating 125 years of the tradition, passion and pride that the Magpies have engendered not only in rugby but in our region as a whole. A connection to our rural community via Progressive Meats and Managing Director Craig Hickson re-aligns that part of our community with the Magpies as they strive for further success in the Air New Zealand Cup." HBRU CEO Mike Bishop stated today.

Throughout our history, the Hawke's Bay Rural Community has been intrinsically linked to us whether it be by providing many of our elite players over the years, by financially supporting our endeavours through to being passionate supporters of the Magpies as they compete in national competitions." Bishop further stated.

"This is a great opportunity for the community to invest in the future of elite level rugby in the Hawke's Bay Region. In association with Progressive Meats, the Rural Community as "Principal Sponsor" will be part of the Black and White colours which reflect the proud tradition and history of rugby in the Hawke's Bay region", Craig Hickson said today.
