New Zealand Cricket drives home Hertz deal

New Zealand Cricket (NZC) has announced a two-year commercial agreement with Hertz New Zealand.

As the NZC’s official car rental partner, Hertz will be integrated across the national governing body’s digital and social media platforms, and will have activation rights at national team home games.

In return, the car rental company will provide both the men’s and women’s national teams with vehicles for their upcoming summer tours, and will also offer fans and customers exclusive promotions, deals and rates until August 2019.

James Wear, NZC’s commercial manager, said: “We’re really pleased to be partnering with Hertz, an internationally recognised and well respected brand. Our teams travel regularly to play cricket and Hertz is making it seamless and convenient for our players to get to and from matches across the country.”

Mark Righton, country manager of Hertz New Zealand, added: “Hertz New Zealand is thrilled to be the official car rental partner of NZC, and will be cheering on our national and domestic sides. Kiwis are huge followers of cricket and we’re delighted to be working with such elite and enthusiastic teams. Everyone at Hertz is looking forward to start delivering great deals for fans and supporting the teams with getting to and from matches.”
