GN Construction NZ partners with the Auckland Blues

GN Construction is proud to announce our sponsorship of the Blues High Performance Programme.

As a business we believe in developing in-house potential with strong support, coaching and mentorship. That’s why we’re excited to offer our long-term backing to an organisation who share the same vision and values. Like the Blues, our goal is to cultivate an environment of success and high-performance amongst our team for the greater good of the community.

With a focus on building the Blues of tomorrow, we will become the official ‘Blues High Performance Programme’ partner, U’17, U’18s and U’20 squad teams.

In tandem, GN Construction will be offering scholarship opportunities to local talent, and seeking more ways to support community rugby in Auckland.

We see this partnership as more than just putting our logo on a jersey. It’s about a deeper level of connection between GN Construction, The Blues, and the greater Auckland community. We’ll open our doors to all Blues players to progress their careers both on, and off the field.

The similarities between construction and rugby are overt. Both involve working in close knit teams, discipline, commitment, and taking great pride in what you do.

Despite being from the wrong side of the Tasman, Mitch Blunden, GN Construction Managing Director knows all too well how important rugby is to the Auckland community.
