Burger kings McDonald’s have joined Newcastle Jets as a major sponsor for the next two seasons, the club revealed today.
The famous golden arches will now be on the back of the A-League playing strip and on the sleeve of the W-League kit.
As part of the new partnership, the Jets will also engage with football clubs throughout the Hunter region thanks to McDonald’s Club Nights.
Jets' own Big Mac, CEO Lawrie McKinna, said the agreement was a major step forward for the club.
“McDonald’s supports sport and grassroots programs right throughout Newcastle and Australia, to have a brand of this stature join the club is major achievement,” McKinna said.
“To have them on board for the next two seasons is indicative of where the club currently finds itself, with great results on field and plenty of stability off it.
“This partnership is about McDonald’s supporting not just the Jets, but grassroots football in Newcastle, which is brilliant to see. I couldn't be happier."
Local McDonald's owner operator Warwick Boyd added: “We’re excited to partner with the Jets and help encourage active lifestyles by building the football community in Newcastle.
“We hope to see great things from the Newcastle Jets over the next couple years and we’ll be cheering them on the whole way.”
