City Of Dunedin Pipe Band

The City of Dunedin Pipe Band have been involved with the Highlanders since the teams inception into the Super Rugby competition in 1996. In 2011 the Band took centre stage prior to all Highlander Super Rugby home games last season with a stirring rendition of Flower Of Scotland and a brave display from the Bands’ Snare Drummer. In 2012 the City Of Dunedin Pipe Band will again be an important part of the pre-match at Forsyth Barr Stadium (Dunedin) and Rugby Park Stadium in Invercargill.

Highlanders Internship 2013

Highlanders Trust interns Mark Gilbraith (photo below - fourth from left) and Courtney Kilpatrick (far right) help with pre-game set-up alongside the Highlanders event team.  Mark and Courtney joined the Highlanders in February this year for a 100 hour placement in the Highlanders Marketing and Commercial team.  Both interns were studying at Otago University in 2012 and they were selected through an interview process following a joint venture between the Highlanders and the Marketing department at the University of Otago.



The Tux Blimp

The Tux Purina blimp is a new addition in 2013... and what an addition! At 5m long and requiring a helicopter pilot to fly it at Forsyth Barr Stadium, it's a great element to enhance the overall match experience.  The Tux Purina blimp will be in action at halftime and there are some great prizes loaded and ready to drop!! So watch up and a big thanks to Purina Tux.
