We are the one and only Beige Brigade – accept no imitations! We are the relentless clappers, the bearers of Larry the Small Horse, and the residents of Beige 13.
The Beige Brigade love cricket and we’re always keen to help New Zealanders get passionate and excited about the game. Wins are nice but we’re long haul supporters – not some disgruntled, cynical bunch of old buggers who leap on a loss like it’s the end of the world.
The hardcore of the Beige Brigade is a bunch of everyday chaps from heartland New Zealand (Tauranga, Hamilton, Wellington, Westport, Christchurch, New Plymouth, Wanganui, Carterton, Marlborough) who believe clamorous, optimistic, boisterous support is what every New Zealand cricket team needs.
The Beige Brigade has been piling along to games in New Zealand for many years, just going about our support, and occasionally doling out a bit of abuse where it was warranted.
The Beige Brigade is a 100% Kiwi institution and we will be here for a long time to come. The shirts are an icon of Kiwi pride, halcyon days of success and fun and mirth in connection with sport. That’s the way it should be – after all it is about passion, not fashion.
