Macca’s launches footy campaign via DDB Sydney ahead of season kick-off

Amanda Nakad: “We know how much our customers love footy.”

McDonald’s has teamed up with creative agency DDB Sydney to launch a campaign celebrating the return of the Australian footy season.

Narrated by league commentator Ray Warren, the campaign features prominent figures from the world of rugby league, including Mitch Moses, Kezie Apps, Reuben Cotter, Jai Arrow, Sam Thaiday, Ricky Stuart, and Wally Lewis, among others. 

The campaign launched last week across broadcast TV, online video, out-of-home, paid social, digital, and in-stadium advertising, aiming to cement the fast-food brand as a go-to destination for fans, players, and enthusiasts alike throughout the season.

Matt Chandler, DDB Sydney’s executive creative director, highlighted the campaign’s focus of showcasing Macca’s as a post-game destination.

“It’s amazing the people who show up at Macca’s after the game,” said Chandler.

“In this latest spot, Wally, Ricky, Ronald, and a proper dream team of league legends do a great job of helping Macca’s further build its connection with Aussie footy fans.”

Amanda Nakad, McDonald’s director of marketing, added: “We know how much our customers love footy, and we are proud to provide a place for fans to meet before or after a game.

“Win or lose, we’ll always be there for fans and this campaign is the perfect expression of that.”
