McDonalds helping summer sizzle!

McDonalds extends support of local football into Summer

Football St George (FSG) is proud to continue its partnership with McDonalds St George region into the current summer season as part of its ongoing commitment to supporting grassroots sport.

McDonald’s has provided Football St George and its Clubs with fantastic support across local grassroots events and activities as well as club referees and its digital platforms for the past 2 winter seasons. In addition, McDonald’s has also been the naming rights partner to the FSG men’s and women’s premier league competitions as naming rights partner.

FSG delivers the largest summer football program in the region and a huge hit this season for all participants has been the inclusion of an innovative FSG branded reversable playing jersey that every player receives as part of their registration.

FSG CEO, Craig Kiely, is pleased to see the partership prosper.

“We are proud of our association with McDonalds in the St George region and are thrilled that this has now extended to year round support.” Kiely stated.

“It has been a challenging year for everyone and we are grateful that McDonalds St George Licensee Louie and George see the value in working with community organisations to deliver benefits to within our local area.” Kiely said.

Louie Treffiletti and George Stamiris, McDonald’s Licensees in the St George area commented, “We are pleased to extend our involvement with Football St George into the summer period and to contiue to promote an active lifestyle!”
