Kentucky Fried Hawk now too:

I was told before Christmas this was going to happen. KFC want a bigger presence in AFL and as McDonald's are an AFL sponsor and the endorsed fast food/family restaurant, so only way in is via the clubs.

Interesting that they end up choosing 2 clubs that have branded themselves as the family club for decades, and don't have an AFLW team.

Bit of a shame that we're not the only one now, but ah well. Can't believe the Hawks have 4 major sponsors plus a Tassie Gov naming sponsor.

I reckon the KFC Hawks sponsorship is like our Macca’s deal a couple of years ago. If we won on the weekend we could all get a junior cheeseburger on the next Monday morning. No names/logos on kit, etc.

Maybe because there's no eyes on AFLW it really doesn't come into it at the end of the day. I don't mind if they sponsor another team, if we are as good as we say we are then we will deliver way better value for money and come out first if they ever need to pull the pin on one of us. It makes sense for them to go after a Vic team to cover both markets, they'd have done WA too I would think if it weren't for those two clubs already being snapped up by competitors.
