At Mitre 10 we’re big on rugby!

We love what it means to Kiwis, and reckon that rugby shares many of the traits we value at Mitre 10: commitment, passion, satisfaction in getting the job done, a sense of community and a large dose of Kiwi-ness are what we stand for too. 

And because we’re 100% New Zealand owned and operated, we’re staunch supporters of the country’s provincial teams. This made it an easy decision for us to support the game at this level, and become the first sponsor of all four major fifteens provincial rugby competitions in New Zealand:

  • The Mitre 10 Cup (the national provincial championship and the country’s top professional domestic competition)
  • The Farah Palmer Cup (the top domestic women’s competition)
  • The Heartland Championship (the national amateur competition)
  • The Jock Hobbs Under 19 National Memorial Tournament

By backing these we plan to do our bit to help the game get stronger and provide a platform for the finest players to emerge, simply because we’re from here!
