Māori Touch NZ x KBS | apparel partnership extension to 2026

21 Dec

Māori Touch NZ are excited to extend our partnership with KBS Sportswear & Apparel – continuing through to the end of 2026.

MTNZ Trustee Pat Spellman says “We’ve loved working with KBS. As we grow the reach and impact of Māori Touch in our 25th year, it was a no brainer for us to build on the progress we’ve made since entering into the partnership.”In addition to providing exclusive supporters merchandise, KBS will continue to provide on and off field apparel for Māori Touch NZ referee contingent and management/kaimahi uniforms.

Pat adds the partnership will also play an integral role in the reintegration of Māori Touch NZ’s representative programme,“KBS will also equip MTNZ pathway programme and rep teams with uniforms in the new year, as we continue to explore opportunities for our whānau to represent Māori Touch NZ. It’s been a while since we have had our own uniforms – we’re looking forward to making a statement!”

Kauri Wawatai, KBS Managing Director, said:“This partnership between Māori Touch NZ and KBS is one of our most important - we are excited to see it continue in the future. Not only are we committed to being part of the growth of MTNZ, but we’re also excited to provide cost effective solutions to participating rōpū and the wider Māori Touch community throughout Aotearoa”

Māori Touch NZ will release a new range of supporters merchandise early in the new year.
