News in Brief: Rural insurer’s new stadium sponsorship deal
Rural insurer’s new stadium sponsorship deal
FMG (Farmers Mutual Group) has signed a new naming rights sponsorship agreement for Waikato Stadium.

The agreement will see the NZ-owned rural insurer hold naming rights for the stadium for the next 10 years, with an option to extend for a further five years. From October, the facility will be known as FMG Stadium Waikato.

The deal coincides with FMG’s expansion in the region, with new offices being constructed in Hamilton and more staff members due to be recruited.

Hamilton Mayor Julie Hardaker said the sponsorship would be good for the region, saying the company was a perfect fit. A portion of FMG’s investment would go towards enhancing the experience of patron and event participants, she said.
