Auckland Adland gets ready to dodge for good

Over 100 people across the Auckland advertising industry are warming up to duck, dive and dodge for good as the UnLtd: Dodgeball tournament returns to Auckland.


On 13 June, industry teams will battle it out at Action Sports Stadium to raise funds for UnLtd’s work supporting charities helping young people at risk.

The second annual event is kindly sponsored by Lumo and supported by The Communications Council, IAB NZ and PrettyGood. Participating teams include Cartology, Dentsu Aotearoa, FCB, GroupM New Zealand, JCDecaux, Lumo Digital Outdoor, MBM, MediaWorks, oOh!media, PHD Media, Pitchblack Partners, Saatchi & Saatchi, Spark Foundry, Together and Val Morgan Group.

Last year, MBM narrowly took home the trophy, beating Pitchblack Partners in the final.

Says Stacey Gattsche, GM of sales at Lumo: “We at Lumo are thrilled to be supporting UnLtd: Dodgeball competition again and bringing the industry together for a great cause. It’s such a fun way to network with the rest of the industry over some healthy competition and exercise, whilst also raising funds for the important work UnLtd and their charity partners do for young Kiwis at risk.”

The competition is also heating up for the coveted ‘Best Dressed’ title with teams getting creative with their outfits. Pitchblack Partners are cleverly adding to the fundraising efforts by selling sponsorship on their team jerseys to their clients with Burger King, Oceania, Popeyes, Griffins, Gull and Sanitarium already sponsoring their jerseys. Last year, the sponsorship resulted in an additional $5K donation to UnLtd.

Says Josh Moore, principal partner at Pitchblack Partners: “UnLtd events are some of the best in the industry, sports, a few drinks and fundraising for a genuinely important cause. Selling sponsorship in our team jerseys is an easy way for us to help raise funds and we encourage other agencies to do the same – may the most highly sponsored team win!”
