Professional Football Jamaica has secured two additional club sponsors for the Jamaica Premier League, bringing the number of companies that have so far committed to the competition, to eight.
Restaurants Associates Limited, through their Burger King brand, and Trade Wind Citrus, using their Tru-Shake brand, were announced as club sponsors at the Jamaica Pegasus on Tuesday.
This puts Professional Football Jamaica at 80 per cent of it’s $100 million club sponsorship target, having announced Yummy Bakery, Jamaica Producers, Indies Pharma, Wisynco, JMMB and Mount Pleasant Academy as sponsors to date. Digicel are presenting sponsors.
Sabrena McDonald Radcliffe, Sales and Marketing Manager at Burger King, says this continues their long association with football.
“Restaurants Associates Limited through our Burger King brand has been supporting football for many years at the high school and club levels. We’ve sponsored teams like Mount Pleasant and Dunbeholden in the Premier League and we were sponsors of schoolboy football for five years. Coming on board for the Jamaica Premier League is just a natural transition,” said McDonald Radcliffe.
Trade Winds Citrus’ new protein shake brand, Tru Shake, will also now be associated with the country’s top football competition and Marketing Manager Lauren Mahfood is pleased of the company’s association with the 2021 season.
