One of the world’s most recognisable companies, KFC, have advanced their partnership with the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles.

KFC, a current Senior Partner of the Sea Eagles, had their famous logo appear on the front of Manly’s NRL playing shorts in 2023.

However, KFC have now delivered once again in an extension that will see their logo appear on the lower back of all of Manly’s playing jerseys for three seasons from 2024.

Sea Eagles CEO Tony Mestrov congratulated KFC on their new deal.

“The partnership we have with KFC is a very significant one and it is great to have this worldwide brand locked in for at least three more years”, Mestrov said.

“We truly appreciate KFC’s loyal commitment to our Club and we look forward to achieving more great results, on and off the field, with them.”

KFC extends partnership with Sea Eagles

Just like the Sea Eagles, KFC has a wonderful history dating back to its humble beginnings of more than 75 years ago.

In 1950, just three years after Manly’s inaugural season, the Colonel donned his iconic white suit for the first time.

Two years later, the first Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant opens in Utah, USA. 

At the same time, the Sea Eagles was also forging its own unique pathway by making their first ever grand final in 1951.

KFC has four restaurants in the Sea Eagles’ heartland on the Northern Beaches with stores in Dee Why, Manly Vale, Frenchs Forest, and Mona Vale.

Sally Spriggs, Group Marketing Director, KFC South Pacific, said the company was very proud to be extending their partnership with the Sea Eagles.

"KFC is a proud supporter of footy, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to champion the passion of fans through our expanded partnership with the mighty Sea Eagles,'' Spriggs said.

"As we approach 2024, KFC looks forward to celebrating the Sea Eagles’ achievements with fans and connecting them with the sport (and food) they love."
