Tainui Hits Back - The Tainui Trust Board is defending its decision to buy the naming rights to the new Waikato Sports
Stadium. The tribe’s $7 million deal includes the condition that local Maori will make up 20 percent of those employed
during events at the stadium. Mauri Pacific MP and Tainui member Tukoroirangi Morgan says the money would have been

his own responsibilities. The Tainui Trust Board says its decision is a calculated one and is wise and will improve
employment opportunities for the tribe’s people.
