Newtown and Chilwell Cricket Club and Geelong Amateur Football and Netball Club are proud to announce a sponsorship deal with KFC to name their home ground KFC Oval for the next three years.

“This is an outstanding contribution by KFC to the promotion of sport in our region,” said NCCC President, Frank Tuskes. “Cricket and KFC already have a well-established bond at the domestic and international levels, and it fantastic to see it happening at club level.

“This sponsorship will help us ensure our facilities remain at the highest standards. We thank KFC and the Hosking Family for their magnificent support.”

GANFC also welcomed the announcement.

“This is also a huge boost for us and we too would like to thank KFC for their support of sport at the grassroots level,” said club president Simon Farrell. “We would also like to acknowledge the lead role NCCC played in setting up this sponsorship. With this and recent renovations to the club rooms, in which we played our leading role, there is obviously a great spirit of co-operation between the two clubs which is a great benefit to the many communities we serve.”

KFC’s Craig Hosking said supporting local communities was always a priority for his organisation.

“Our franchises in Geelong are very much a part of the community, and we are aware of what a key role both NCCC and GANFC play in fostering sport right across the ages,” he said. “KFC Oval is home to junior cricket and football all the way up to Over 70s cricket. To be able to support all of those groups through this sponsorship is a big win for us.”
