Young Wolves and McDonalds renew sponsorship

Wolves have extended their partnership with Official Young Wolves Sponsor and McDonalds franchisee Abdul Sirkhot at a fun-filled day of family entertainment at the Penn Road restaurant.

Hundreds of children and their parents attended the free event during the summer holidays to mark the renewed sponsorship between Young Wolves and McDonalds as they were joined by Wolfie and Wendy to take part in a variety of exciting games, including bouncy castles, a giant inflatable slide and footpool.

As well as having the chance to get their hands on a range of Young Wolves freebies, the supporters present tested their football shooting power at the speed cage and left with their faces painted.

Mr Sirkhot, owner of 12 McDonalds franchises across Wolverhampton and the Black Country, was presented with a signed Wolves shirt by Kerri Davies, the club’s membership manager, to celebrate the sponsorship renewal.

A loyal supporter of football in the local Wolverhampton area, Mr Sirkhot said: “We’re delighted to extend our sponsorship with Young Wolves and are happy to once again be associated with a Premier League club.

“We are a community restaurant within Wolverhampton and the Black Country and as a corporate company, McDonalds have a large involvement in the promotion of grassroots football.

“By sponsoring Young Wolves, this ties together our brand base with all the things we do within the Wolverhampton community.

“Our recent fun day was a fantastic event and we were absolutely delighted with the turnout. Wolfie and Wendy were both a big attraction on the day and you could see how much the children really enjoyed themselves.”

Last year McDonald’s announced a further four-year commitment to grassroots football, providing five million hours of Fun Football to over 500,000 new children by 2022, making the company the UK’s longest standing supporter of the grassroots game.
