Wolves and McDonald's celebrate new partnership

A new partnership between Wolves and McDonald’s was launched at Dudley Street McDonald’s on Monday, as local franchisee Abdul Sirkhot pledged his support to the club’s junior memberships.

Wolfie and Wendy joined Junior Wolves supporters at the launch party and took the Championship trophy along with them.

Young supporters present won the opportunity to attend the launch party after winning a colouring competition before the Manchester City game in Wolfie’s Den.

As part of the partnership’s Lucky Seats campaign, McDonald’s will also be giving away a free family meal at half-time at Wolves home games.

Abdul was presented with a signed Wolves shirt which will be auctioned off to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charity (RMHC) later in the season.

Abdul, a loyal supporter of football in the local Wolverhampton area, said: “I’m delighted to be working with Wolves this season by sponsoring the Junior Wolves.

“The club are a fantastic example of a team that knows its roots, with a real community spirit.

“Going forward from this we’ll be looking to assist Wolves with their community football work by providing equipment and setting up fun days for fans and the Juniors to enjoy.”

In August, McDonald’s announced a further four-year commitment to football, making the company the UK’s longest standing supporter of the grassroots game.

The next four years will see McDonald’s work with all four UK football associations to provide more than five million hours of fun football as they seek to introduce thousands of children and young adults to the nation’s favourite sport.
