KFC supporting community cricket
Following on from KFC’s support of community cricket last year, KFC has announced it is also giving cricket clubs the chance to win big bucks this season. This year KFC will be challenging clubs from all over Australia to compete for cash mid-innings during the KFC Big Bash at the SCG. To be in with a chance, keen clubs can head to KFC.com.au and explain in 25 words or less why their cricket club is the best in Australia.

“KFC has a long-standing relationship with Cricket Australia, and it’s incredibly rewarding to give something back into community clubs”, says KFC’s Paul Meishcke. “This year we are continuing to support elite level cricket through the international and domestic Twenty20 sponsorships, as well as launching the third year of our Community Cricket programme, aimed at supporting and developing the sport of cricket at a grass roots level. Cricket in this country forms the heart of many communities, bringing people together in sport and fun. Community cricket is the breeding ground for the future generations of cricketing excellence and is every bit as important as the club and national level game. KFC is committed to supporting and rewarding fans and players at all levels of cricket.”

Watch out for some uniquely KFC activities through the matches this summer and check out Kfc.com.au for information of how you can get involved. KFC has been the official restaurant of Australian cricket since 2003 and is has been the proud major sponsor of the Australian international and domestic Twenty20 series since its inception. KFC is pleased to have seen the game grow from its infancy, into the powerhouse it has become today.
