CMC Markets renews deal with Blues Rugby in New Zealand

Rick Steves

“Backing the team for another three years contributes to CMC Markets’ history of supporting talented Kiwis who strive for success in their chosen fields, and we’re excited to see what the 2023 and beyond seasons hold for the iconic Kiwi sports team.”

CMC Markets has announced it will continue backing the Blues for three more years, following a successful two-year sponsorship deal with the Rugby team.

The Auckland-based Rugby club has had impressive 2021 and 2022 Super Rugby seasons and CMC Markets wants to be part of the upcoming ones.

The three-year renewal will see the CMC as the Blues official online trading partner until 2025, providing it opportunities to grow its presence in New Zealand and create initiatives with the Blues players throughout the season.

The CMC logo will also continue to be branded on the players’ shorts and other official team apparel, and on signage at Eden Park.

“CMC Markets’ history of supporting talented Kiwis”

Andrew Hore, Blues Chief Executive, says, “CMC Markets is a globally leading and pioneering trading business with a great local team who believe in the power of sport and investing in the community. We are both highly competitive and aspirational organisations, and we look forward to growing together and supporting one another for years to come.”

Chris Smith, General Manager, CMC Markets New Zealand said “It’s been really rewarding being part of the Blues’ community and celebrating the team’s stellar performance both on and off the field. Getting close to the trophy this year was another reminder of why we truly believe in them and feel aligned with their values of inclusivity and excellence.”

“Backing the team for another three years contributes to CMC Markets’ history of supporting talented Kiwis who strive for success in their chosen fields, and we’re excited to see what the 2023 and beyond seasons hold for the iconic Kiwi sports team. The Blues have a loyal fanbase that enjoy immersing themselves in every part of the sport including analysing game stats. Similarly at CMC, we pride ourselves in providing our clients with the most up to date technology and data to inform their trading decisions on the markets.”

CMC Markets has a physical presence in New Zealand since 2006 and offers access to online trading of more than 10,000 products across CFDs and foreign exchange (FX), either via web or mobile.  Through custom-built apps for iPhone, iPad and Android, mobile traders have the freedom to execute trades and check the market as required.
