Westland Sports Hub major naming rights announced
Development West Coast (DWC) chair Renee Rooney is pleased to announce DWC have secured major naming rights for the DWC Westland Sports Hub.
“The West Coast has a rich history of sporting success, but the importance of sport to our region goes far deeper than these achievements. Sport has long brought Coasters together, helping build thriving communities across our region,” says Mrs Rooney.
“Development West Coast is proud to partner with the Westland Sports Hub to support the major upgrade of sporting facilities in Hokitika. It will be a big game changer for Westland, benefiting most sporting codes, while importantly providing a venue to bring our communities closer together.”
Development West Coast, through the Westland District Council, has allocated $1.5 million MDI funding for this project.
Westland High School Board Chair, Latham Martin said: “We have negotiated a further financial contribution from Development West Coast to accompany the naming rights. This will help with any other operational costs, including maintenance and administration of the facility.”
Fundraising Chair, Ange Keenan said that the fundraising efforts for the facility were still underway, and further naming sponsors were being sought for the facility.
“We are in the process of looking for naming sponsors for the courts and gymnasium, as well as individuals to sponsor the DWC Westland Sports Hub. We have plenty of sponsorship options for you, your family or your business to support this forward-thinking community project.”
