The All Blacks and NZ Rugby
Ford New Zealand are proud to have been the driving force behind our very own world champion All Blacks for the last 23 years. Our association extends from community grass roots rugby right up to our national team, adding strength to a sport that has been a large part of New Zealand culture for generations.
Meanwhile, 2010 marked the first year we were proudly associated with Small Blacks. The Small Blacks encourage having fun in rugby, while teaching our up and coming All Blacks and Black Ferns the skills they'll need to be the best they can be.
Make sure you are dressed in black on the right dates and join with us in supporting the All Blacks this season!
The Black Caps and NZ Cricket
Ford has also been the vehicle supplier to New Zealand Cricket since 2009. Meanwhile in 2014, the relationship with NZC went even further by becoming an official team sponsor and sees the Ford Blue Oval featured on the playing kits of the Black Caps, White Ferns and other representative teams.
Ford is delighted to support New Zealand’s most popular summer sport, particularly as the relationship helps create opportunities for cricketers at all levels right throughout the country.
The Black Sticks Men and Women have both progressed solidly over the past few years with strong performances at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
Ford is pleased to continue the relationship with both Black Stick teams and is also a proud naming rights sponsor of the domestic Ford National Hockey League.
The sponsorship also sees Ford support New Zealand's next generation of hockey players through the Small Sticks programme - Hockey New Zealand's junior programme which currently sees more than 70,000 primary school children each year get a taste for hockey in their local communities.
2017 marks more than 26 years of Ford New Zealand’s partnership with Variety the Children’s Charity. Variety works with sick, disabled and disadvantaged children throughout New Zealand, helping them to realise their full potential. Ford is proud of its strong relationship with Variety, providing sponsorship support and being actively involved with fundraising activities including the Kiwi Kid Sponsorship programme.
This support is unique to Capital City Ford and we are proud to support the Wellington Hospitals Foundation, the official charity of Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital.
We have arranged various fundraising events over the years and donations have enabled the purchase of several items of much needed medical equipment. Each year over 30,000 children aged from birth to 16 years are cared for in Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital and we are delighted to be involved in supporting the community in this way.
Again, this relationship is unique to Capital City Ford and we are proud supporters of both the Wellington Chamber of Commerce and Business Central. Not only do we supply the Chamber with their vehicles, we're also sponsors of their annual golf day tournament and 'Business After 5' events; these provide Chamber members a great opportunity to learn more about our business and its people and we're delighted to have them representing Capital City Ford in the business community.
