At Toyota NZ we believe if you can dream it, you can do it! We're proud to support the following events, teams and groups:
We’re surrounded by ocean. That means fish! Matt Watson and the ITM Fishing Show bring us the wonders of our waters in very exciting style.
There are plenty of Kiwis who would like to be Matt Watson. His job, in fact his very existence, is built around catching fish in our rich seas and rivers. To tell his remarkable story to a like-minded country, we’re proud to sponsor the ITM Fishing Show.
In 2014 we collaborated with Matt to build a purpose-built Hilux to help him go the extra mile and fish wherever the fish are.

Toyota Ambassador Dame Valerie Adams Top 5 Training Tips
What’s the best way to get kids into sport? To let them have a try. That’s what the Sanitarium Weet-bix Kids TRYathlon does and the kids love it.

Inspiring Kiwi kids to ‘get out there, give it a TRY and achieve a personal best’; the Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon helps kiwi kids stay active and healthy through a programme of participation – Every participant gets a medal!

If there’s one thing you need to know about New Zealand; it’s rugby. Glorious, muddy, hard-fought, time-honoured rugby.
Rugby in New Zealand is founded in club rugby. It’s a game and a spirit that brings our communities together and gives people of all ages a sense of passion, purpose and pride.
Despite over 100 years of club rugby games, very few of them were televised. As fervent believers in this proud sporting heritage, we decided to do something about this lack of exposure. Toyota GrassRoots Rugby has given this great game and the communities behind it the attention they richly deserve.
There’s something magical about sailing. The Optimist programme is a way many young Kiwis are able to experience this invigorating sport- and win.
Many young Kiwis have dreams about sailing and the Optimist Nationals can make it happen. With our assistance, New Zealand yachting clubs are able to host world-class events, in which aspiring young sailors get to experience racing yachts and learn from experts in the sport. The regatta attracts hundreds of people and this year, Toyota was proud to support this year’s Optimist Nationals event hosted by the Kohimarama Yacht Club in Auckland.
The Hilux New Zealand Rural Games is a celebration of rural heritage and traditional sports. And a spot of cow-pat throwing.
There are plenty of men and women throughout the land who’ve acquired some pretty mean rural skills. Now, they can put their skills to the test. The Hilux New Zealand Rural Games brings huge crowds from here and Australia for events like, wood chopping, sheep shearing, dog trials, coal shovelling, fencing and more. This event sets the standard for competitive rural skills, as does the new Hilux; the benchmark rebuilt.

If you haven’t tried an Angus steak, you haven’t tried steak at all. New Zealand Angus is as good as it gets.
When it comes to constant improvement it’s hard to surpass the efforts of New Zealand’s Angus producers. We’re proud to sponsor New Zealand Angus via an eye-catching Hilux. Watch out for it at farming events across the country.
You can’t talk about passion for motorsport in New Zealand without mentioning Manfeild Park. It’s a Kiwi icon with an international reputation.
Surrounded by the stunning Manawatu countryside, Manfeild Park is one of the longest race tracks in the southern hemisphere. It’s also the most diverse events centre you’ll ever find. It’s the kind of place where legends are made and the power of belief inspires people to become their best. That’s something we believe in too.

Every week, thousands of Kiwis sit glued to one of NZ’s favourite shows, where our brave police officers tackle crime.
You really get an appreciation for the amazing job our New Zealand Police force do when you watch Police Ten 7. You also see the positive difference they make in our communities and the incredible effort they put in. It’s all in the name of working together for a better world. We’re pleased to lend our support by giving Detective Sergeant Lemoto, the show’s host, a Toyota Highlander to help him around the country.
Sustainability is an important goal for businesses. That’s where the Sustainable Business Network (SBN) comes in.
SBN helps all kinds of Kiwi companies become sustainable- and successful. The NZI National Sustainable Business Awards recognise and celebrate those who have sustainability work for their own businesses and New Zealand. We’re proud to support this future-focussed network and provide them with a Toyota Prius.
