The third Deloitte Sports Review analyses the country’s top provincial rugby unions and recognises that for the second year running there has been a collective surplus made by all 14 unions. The results show that a surplus of around $3.2 million has been achieved for FY13, the largest combined surplus recorded. The financial results demonstrate a great turnaround of events by the unions over the past few years, setting them up well for the next phase of the rugby business game.
A financial review of the country’s leading rugby unions reveals they have returned to surplus with the benefits continuing to support the all-important grass roots. This positive trend will continue to enhance the on-going viability of New Zealand’s favourite game.
Welcome to the inaugural Deloitte Sports Review of the 14 semi-professional and amateur rugby unions competing in New Zealand’s premier provincial rugby competition, the ITM Cup.
