The Association’s current shirt sponsor is global restaurant chain McDonald’s. Since the first restaurant opened in Illinois, USA in 1954, the fast-food chain has now established over 36,000 restaurants in 119 countries.

McDonald’s arrived on Australian shores in 1971 when the doors opened in Yagoona, NSW and now, almost 50 years later, there are 970 McDonald’s locations around Australia. Their presence in Australia has seen them make a significant contribution to local communities, not only employing over 100,000 people across the country but also investing heavily in sponsorship of sporting organisations and other community initiatives.
