Penrith Panthers have announced that KFC has signed on as the club’s official quick service restaurant partner for the next two seasons.
The major partnership will see the KFC logo displayed on the Panthers playing shorts until at least the end of 2023.
“It’s fantastic to welcome KFC to the Panthers corporate network,” Panthers Group CEO Brian Fletcher said.
“To have another iconic, global brand join forces with our club is further endorsement of what we have worked so hard to build here in Penrith.
“We look forward to working closely with KFC over the next couple of years to deliver some great value offers to the Panthers family.”
Kristy Woolrych, Chief Marketing Officer KFC Australia, said the restaurant chain was excited by the opportunity to engage with Panthers members and fans.
“KFC has always been a big supporter of footy and we are thrilled to be an official sponsor of the Panthers for the next two years,” she said.
“The club is renowned for its passionate, loyal and ever-growing fanbase, as well as its outstanding work within the community.
“With the Panthers coming off a stellar 2021 season and lifting the silverware for the first time since 2003, fingers crossed they can go back-to-back.
“Did someone say KFC and the reigning premiers?”
