Warriors add Bayleys Real Estate to stable of sponsors
Bayleys Real Estate Auckland has officially joined forces with the One New Zealand Warriors, marking a significant addition to the NRL club’s sponsorship roster.
Bayleys has secured the position of the Auckland-based outfit’s official real estate partner for the 2024 and 2025 seasons. This collaboration includes the renaming of the club’s premier hospitality venue, located in the East Stand at Go Media Stadium Mt Smart, now known as the Bayleys Club Lounge. With a capacity to accommodate over 600 attendees, the Bayleys Club Lounge promises an immersive and dynamic game day experience for fans and guests alike.
Corporate hospitality routinely sold out for Warriors home games during a hugely successful 2023 NRL season on and off the field.
“Having Bayleys as a partner for the first time is hugely exciting for the club,” said Glenn Critchley, General Manager of Commercial and Consumer Business at One New Zealand Warriors.
“Bayleys is a family-owned and led business providing unparalleled reach across the whole of New Zealand with a priority on connection with people. It’s a great fit for us.”
Lloyd Budd, CEO of Bayleys Real Estate Auckland, echoed Critchley’s sentiment.
“We recognise that people, relationships and community are fundamental to having a respected and market-leading real estate business and loyal clients are at the heart of this,” Budd said.
“Loyalty is also central to the One New Zealand Warriors and, by aligning our agency business with a sports team founded on the same core principles of family ownership and values, a high-performance culture, and dedication to training, learning and mentoring, Bayleys can look forward to a win-win partnership.”
As well as One New Zealand (formerly Vodafone New Zealand), the club’s major sponsor since 1999, the Warriors’ stable of sponsors includes Sky TV, Autex Industries, sportswear company Dynasty, Best Foods mayonnaise, radio station flava, the New Zealand Herald and fast food chain Wendy’s.
Bayleys Real Estate Auckland boasts a comprehensive portfolio covering all market sectors and has been recognised with prestigious awards, including the REINZ Medium Agency of the Year in 2022 and 2023.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary last year, Bayleys stands as New Zealand’s largest full-service real estate company, further underscoring the significance of this collaboration with the One New Zealand Warriors.
