In announcing the 2021 partnership, Managing Director of Go Media Mike Gray, said:
“Go Media has been a long-standing sponsor of sport in the Otago region and a long-standing sponsor of basketball across Aotearoa. As we have plans to expand our digital out of home network within the Otago region this year it made perfect sense for us to come on board as the Naming Rights Partner of the Otago Nuggets for the 2021 season as they aim to win the championship for a second year in a row.
“I was fortunate enough to be at the finals last year and the Otago Nuggets are an exciting team to watch, and we look forward to playing a part in their ongoing success. As a New Zealand owned company, we are committed to supporting all the communities we operate in, and we back New Zealand like no other.”
Making the exciting announcement, Go Media Otago Nuggets General Manager Ang Ruske, said:
“We are thrilled to have secured Go Media as our Naming Right Partner for the 2021 Sal’s NBL season.
“Go Media is a great fit for the Nuggets as we have a common goal of looking at expanding our brands in the Otago region.
“We are grateful of Mike’s support and look forward to a successful partnership with Go Media.”
