Macca’s join the line-up for Tasmania’s Festival of Football


Western United is pleased to announce McDonald’s Australia as the naming rights partner for the upcoming week of football fun in Tasmania.
The Macca’s Festival Of Football, which will run from Wednesday, 14 April to Thursday, 22 April, will have fun, family friendly, football events every day and will be headlined by United’s two A-League fixtures against Central Coast Mariners and Wellington Phoenix.
Western United CEO, Chris Pehlivanis said it is exciting to have Macca’s part of the inaugural festival.
“We already love the Macca’s Half Time Heroes at our A-League matches, so to extend this to include being a partner of the Festival of Football is a real boost to grass roots football in Tasmania. The community values of McDonald’s perfectly aligns with our club values of togetherness, growth and effort,” Pehlivanis said.
“The Macca’s Festival Of Football will be a fantastic week celebration in Tasmania which we are excited to deliver for the community of Tasmania.”
Brad McMullen, McDonald’s Market Director – Southern Region, said: “Playing an active role in Australian communities is something that’s important to everyone at Macca’s.
“We’re proud to be partnering with Western United to help connect Tasmanian locals with the Festival of Football and encourage more people to support and enjoy the game.”
