Without the generous support of our family of partners, we would not be able to put a team on the court. 


As we all know, 2020 was an extremely challenging year, for everyone.  Notwithstanding the huge uncertainty that existed in business, and the fact we were unable to play any home games in Nelson, all of our Gold Partners supported us to attend the NBL Showdown in Auckland last year and have returned to support us as we come home in 2021, along with several new Partners.  In particular we acknowledge our naming rights sponsor, Mike Pero, for their unwavering support last year.   


We extend our appreciation to all of these businesses for supporting us through a difficult time in 2020 - this enabled us to compete in Auckland last year and give a number of our young local players an opportunity to play on the national stage, and has ensured we remain in the League for our 40th season - thank you.

Please support these businesses if you have the opportunity to!

Becoming a Partner

Please contact us if you are interested in discussing partnership opportunities in 2021 or 2022.

2021 offers a special opportunity for local businesses to be associated with the Nelson Giants as Nelson’s oldest and most successful sporting franchise, celebrating our 40th season.  Being the only team to share this milestone with the NBL provides a great opportunity for local and national media coverage.


By supporting the Giants, our partners will:

  • Be seen to be supporting an iconic regional brand which has a renewed focus on developing local talent.

  • Help deliver entertainment for our region and provide something positive for new and existing fans to get behind following the disruption of Covid-19.

  • Be associated with the community basketball programmes the Nelson Giants deliver.

  • Be part of fastest growing sport in NZ, riding a wave of youth participation and viewership.

  • Achieve national and local brand exposure via a range of available sponsorship properties.

  • Be able to leverage the partnership through use of the Giants’ brand and team for tailored sponsor activations.


We acknowledge Covid-19 has had a significant impact on many businesses, including our own, making new expenditure a difficult decision.  However, we believe a partnership with the Giants is an investment in our community that will be recognised and rewarded by your customers and our fans.
