Victory wears KFC on its sleeve


Melbourne Victory is delighted to announce it has extended its major partnership with KFC by a further three-year term.

KFC has been a proud and loyal partner of Melbourne Victory since the inaugural 2005/06 Hyundai A-League season.

With this partnership extension, the KFC brand will appear on the sleeve of the Melbourne Victory playing kit as it has done for the last 13 years. 

“KFC has been a part of Melbourne Victory since the very start, so we are delighted to continue the strong relationship we have created,” Melbourne Victory CEO Trent Jacobs said.

“We value KFC’s loyalty from day one of our Club’s journey and look forward to working collaboratively with their team over the next three seasons and beyond.”

KFC prides itself on using quality chicken and local ingredients from trusted suppliers.

KFC has recently launched the KFC Youth Foundation to help build confidence in young Australians. As an employer of more than 35,000 people, with more than 90% being under the age of 25, KFC has seen first-hand that with confidence, young people can achieve amazing things.

Through KFC’s partnership with some of Australia’s leading youth charities, the KFC Youth Foundation aims to help more young people outside the walls of their restaurants be more confident

President of the KFC Franchisee Association of Victoria, Mitch Glanville, said he and the whole KFC team are extremely pleased to be able to lend their support to Melbourne Victory.

“We had absolutely no hesitation in extending our healthy partnership with Melbourne Victory and view the long-term relationship as immensely beneficial to both parties,” Mr Glanville said.

“There has been a mutual respect since the very start which flows down to members and fans of the World Game and Melbourne Victory.”

Colonel Sanders has certainly given his tick of approval!
