All Whites ‘kickin’ it Kiwi style’ World Cup bus

The All Whites will be travelling around in style during the 2010 FIFA World Cup tournament in South Africa in their own personalised, luxury transport. A 40-seater team coach, emblazoned with the New Zealand flag and sporting the phrase “Kickin’ It Kiwi Style”, was handed over to World Cup officials by Kia Motors at Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg along with the team coaches for the other World Cup teams.

Kia Motors is a sponsor of FIFA and UEFA events that cover international competitions including the 2010 and 2014 World Cups as well as EURO 2012 and 2016.

The World Cup in South Africa is by far the largest event football event the company has been involved with and a total fleet of 207 vehicles, including personal transport for officials, is being provided by Kia, along with a technical support crew based in each host city. In addition to the luxury coaches, other vehicles include 7-seater Kia Sorento SUVs and 8-seater Kia Carnival people movers — all manufactured by Kia Motors.

“The Kickin It Kiwi Style slogan is a nice way to instill national pride as the All Whites compete in South Africa — all our hopes and best wishes will be with them,” says Todd McDonald, General Manager Kia Motors New Zealand. “Being involved actively in football marketing is an integral part of the Kia Motors vision to become a formidable player on the global automotive stage and having a New Zealand team at the World Cup finals just adds the icing on the cake.”
