Z Energy partners with Emirates Team New Zealand for the 36th America’s Cup as an Exclusive Supplier of fuel and bio fuel for the 36th America’s Cup being hosted in Auckland over the summer of 2020/2021.

In coming together, both organisations have a strong desire to engage as many Kiwis as possible from around the country in supporting a successful defence.

Grant Dalton, CEO for Emirates Team New Zealand, highlighted why this was a great match. “We’re excited to partner with another prominent national New Zealand business that is passionate about the team and the America’s Cup.

We want to bring as many people throughout the whole of New Zealand together in our journey to defend the Americas’s Cup in 2021 and believe through working together with Z Energy and all of their stations and touchpoints we can extend our reach to all of our supporters in every small town and community around the country and bring them along for the ride.”

Mike Bennetts, CEO of Z Energy says “Emirates Team New Zealand have shown what it means to be truly innovative. There is a natural alignment for Z as we make a difference to our customers through the provision of sustainable transport solutions and innovation in our customer experience offers. We’re excited about the partnership and being able to help bring it to kiwis around the country.”

The partnership between Z Energy and Emirates Team New Zealand will see Z provide fuel, including options for Biofuel from New Zealand’s only largescale biofuel manufacturing facility located in Wiri, Auckland, along with other fuel transport solutions.

Customers of Z can expect to see opportunities to engage with Emirates Team New Zealand over the coming 18 months.
