Major sponsor returns to West Coast Eagles

AFL Aussie rules football team the West Coast Eagles has entered into a partnership with fast food restaurant chain Hungry Jack’s.

The company will serve as a top-tier major partner of the club. The length of the agreement was not disclosed, but it will begin with the 2018 AFL season.

Hungry Jack’s, which was founded in Perth, was a jersey sponsor of the Eagles from 1987 to 2011, a period during which the club won three AFL Premierships in 1992, 1994 and 2006.

Eagles chief executive Trevor Nisbett said: “Hungry Jack’s and the West Coast Eagles are synonymous with a time which is rich in the club’s history and memorable to all West Australians. The entire club looks forward to a strong alliance and creating new memories with Hungry Jack’s.

“For 25 years Hungry Jack’s was a major sponsor of the West Coast Eagles and a critical partner in the formative years, which saw the club become a force in Australian football.”

The new deal has been signed ahead of the Eagles’ move to the new 60,000-seat Perth Stadium next year. The club is also preparing to move to new training and administration facilities at Lathlain Park.
