Northern Districts Cricket (ND) are proud to have been in partnership with premium insurance broker, Rothbury Insurance, since 2015. This year Rothbury have extended their partnership with ND, and the brand will now adorn the chest of the men’s training shirt.

Rothbury have been passionate supporters of cricket in the region, and the leap into apparel branding is warmly welcomed by the staff and players at ND. Waikato Branch Manager, Mark Sloman, knows how important commercial support is for sport, saying, “We are very proud to assist Northern Districts Cricket in growing and supporting cricket within the Northern Districts region. The opportunity to make a difference in a sporting organisation that puts people at the heart of what it does is important for us.”

Alongside the training shirt insignia, Rothbury will continue to be the official insurance partner for ND, helping the organisation to navigate complex risk requirements, including event cancellation which was been especially topical after last year’s rain impacted season.

ND Commercial & Experience Manager, Charlotte Twigg, is thrilled to have Rothbury’s continued support.

“The support and expertise that Mark and the Rothbury team offer our organisation is invaluable for us to understand and protect against risk. We are delighted they happen to have a huge love for cricket too, and it’s very exciting to have their branding on our players as they train and warm up for matches, preparing for battle” she said.

Rothbury Insurance Brokers are locals who live and work in your community and help protect the assets of thousands of Kiwis nationwide. They are committed to supporting local communities and sponsor more than 100 community, sporting, and charitable organisations across the country.

ND have had strong starts in all three domestic competitions so far. The men are top-of-the-table in the Plunket Shield, and second by just one point in the Ford Trophy. The women have made a gallant bounce-back after a tricky start in the Hallyburton Johnstone Shield to finish the first half of the competition in second place on the points table. All three competitions resume after the completion of the Super Smash.

The Northern Brave’s Dream 11 Super Smash campaign kicks off with a home fixture on Friday at Seddon Park, where they will play at double header against the Central Hinds (2pm) and Stags (5pm). Tickets are just $20 for adults or $5 for kids.
