Paralympic New Zealand (PNZ) would like to announce the launch of its first official supporter’s club, the Kiwi Crew!

The Kiwi Crew is a chance to get up close and personal with the New Zealand Paralympic Team, with exclusive access to what goes on behind the scenes as New Zealand’s Para athletes prepare to make their mark on the world stage at the Paralympic Games Tokyo, Beijing and beyond. This new supporter’s club provides the opportunity for fans, old and new, to engage with the New Zealand Paralympic Team in a way they never have before. It is a great way to increase your knowledge and love for Para sport before we arrive at the absolute pinnacle of Para sport, the Paralympic Games, in Tokyo from the 24 August – 5 September 2021.

Fans can join the Kiwi Crew here.

Our Para athletes, along with the country and the world, have been hit hard by Covid-19. They had to watch and accept their life’s work be put on hold. Physically, mentally, and emotionally they have struggled to find a way through the disruption and uncertainty. The support NZ Paralympians receive from the NZ public means everything to them and now they need it more than ever. This is why PNZ has launched the Kiwi Crew, to show our New Zealand Paralympic Team the support they deserve!

When you join the Kiwi Crew, you will receive insider access to PNZ’s Tokyo 2020 campaign and get exclusive content, special offers and experiences from PNZ and its partners, members only e-newsletters, and access to official merchandise that will really make you feel part of the Kiwi team competing in Tokyo 2020 next year.

“We are thrilled to have launched the Kiwi Crew to New Zealand Para sport fans.” said PNZ Chief Executive Fiona Allan.

“The support of the New Zealand public is one of the main drivers for our Para athletes to train hard each day, it makes them so proud to represent the country that they love.

“We want to strengthen the relationship between our Para athletes and the New Zealand public, we want to help everyone enjoy Paralympic sport to its fullest. We hope that Kiwis across our proud sporting nation will support Para sport and sign up to join our crew.”

The second edition of the Kiwi Crew members only e-newsletter will be coming out on October 9 and will include the exclusive launch of our supporters’ new merchandise line, as well as lots of other great content. Show your support for your New Zealand Paralympic Team and sign up today!
