Luisetti Seeds the major sponsor of Canterbury Country Club Rugby
The Canterbury Rugby Football Union is pleased to announce that Luisetti Seeds is the new major sponsor of the Country Club Rugby Championship.
This sponsorship is for all Division One competitions in the Mid Canterbury Union and North Canterbury and Ellesmere Sub Unions.
Luisetti Seeds has provided smaller sponsorships for many rugby clubs over the years and is delighted to be able to make this significant long-term commitment to Canterbury Country Rugby. The area also neatly fits with the area where Luisetti Seeds and Stapletons clients are concentrated.
Canterbury Rugby Football Union Chief Executive Hamish Riach said he was delighted to have a Canterbury-owned and operated family company on board as a major sponsor.
“The Luisetti family and Luisetti Seeds have made a significant contribution to rugby in Rangiora and North Canterbury over five generations and it is fitting that Canterbury Country Division One teams will compete for the Luisetti Seeds Cup,” he said.
Division One North Canterbury teams will compete for the Luisetti Seeds Hunnibell Memorial Trophy.
This cup is named after Richard and Max Luisetti’s grandfather, Alf Hunnibell, who was the secretary of the North Canterbury Rugby Sub Union, the North Canterbury Club and managed the Senior North Canterbury team for many years.
This cup has been competed for since 1968 and was presented to the winner of the second round of the North Canterbury competition.
