Sponsorship opportunities

Sponsorship options 2016-2017

The WRA is able to offer sponsors one opportunity for promotion through the events this season:

  1. Event Sponsorship for the 2016-17 Season

Event sponsorship                                                      

Your company could be the exclusive named sponsor of the Wellington Rowing Association 2016-2017 rowing season. This means exposure at up to seven events held between August 2016 and February 2017. These events are held at various venues around Wellington, depending on the weather, which as well as the 2,000+ rowers and coaches also attract supporters and thousands more spectators passing these high traffic venues.

The event sponsorship means YOUR company name on every regatta this season.



As the Event Sponsor of the WRA you will get exclusive naming rights to all local regattas run by WRA this season. You will get exposure to the entire Wellington Rowing Community as well as spectators and those passing regattas which are held in various locations around Greater Wellington:

    • Your company name included in all regatta names
    • Your logo on all event promotional material including 5 large flags around the venue, as well as banners in the boat park.
    • The opportunity to attend the awards functions at the end of each regatta
    • Your logo featured on the online entry/programme and results system
    • All regatta volunteers wearing your logo
    • Promotion on the Wellington Rowing Association Website
    • Promotion on the Wellington Rowing Association Facebook page and through the local club network
    • Media exposure
