Nespresso and Emirates Team New Zealand:
The Quest for the Ultimate Cup
Nespresso Reaffirms Sponsorship of Emirates Team New Zealand
Nestlé Nespresso S.A., the worldwide reference for highest quality premium portioned coffee, today reaffirmed its sponsorship of Emirates Team New Zealand in their campaign to win the 35th America’s Cup.
Nespresso has a long-standing history of association with the world of sailing and Emirates Team New Zealand. Nespresso was a proud sponsor of the team when it challenged for the 34th America’s Cup in 2013. Additionally, Nespresso was also the Official Coffee of the 34th edition of the America’s Cup in San Francisco.
Emirates Team New Zealand is a successful, performance-driven team and shares the same quest for continuous innovation as Nespresso, the premium, international coffee brand. The two leading brands share the right balance between passion, authenticity and a strong team ethos, supported by great expertise, establishing them as pioneers in their respective fields.
John Ciaglia, Nespresso New Zealand Country Manager comments: “We are thrilled to continue our support of Emirates Team New Zealand as they challenge for the 35th America’s Cup in 2017. Nespresso and its employees are inspired by our Kiwi sporting heroes and their inspirational attitudes and fighting team spirit, so it’s an alignment that we’re extremely proud to be a part of once again.”
John adds: “We wish the team every success in their quest for the ultimate cup and we will be supporting them every step of the way.”
Grant Dalton, CEO Emirates Team New Zealand said: “Emirates Team New Zealand are delighted to welcome Nespresso’s return as a sponsor of this year’s America’s Cup in Bermuda. It means a lot each time one of our valued sponsors wants to return to be part of our team and we value associations with premium international brands like Nespresso, where continuous innovation and commitment to success are a core part of the culture.
It goes without saying that with the rate at which Emirates Team New Zealand operates, it is a very welcome boost to the team to have Nespresso on board to help fuel the team as they work towards the 35th America’s Cup.”
