Amid her local and international football success, including captaining the Jamaica women’s national football team and becoming one of Manchester City’s central players, Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw has inked a major two-year brand partnership deal with KFC Jamaica.
Shaw captained the Reggae Girlz to their second Fifa Women’s World Cup, which will kick off over the summer of 2023 in New Zealand and Australia, and her new partnership with the fast food chain will cover the upcoming World Cup as well as 2024’s Paris Olympic Games.
She is Jamaica’s leading goal scorer as well as the current leading scorer in this season’s Barclays Women’s Super League (WSL) in England and recently took home the WSL’s Player of the Month Award.
Sharing her excitement over her new partnership, Shaw expressed that she had fond memories of spending quality time with her family while enjoying meals from the company’s restaurant.
“To now be joining the KFC team as an official partner, it’s a really great moment for me and my family. I’m excited to see this partnership come together, and I’m looking forward to doing big things!” she said.
Restaurants of Jamaica Brand Manager, Andrei Roper, noted that the restaurant chain was a long-time supporter of Jamaican sports as well as its athletes and expressed his and KFc’s delight at being able to join Shaw on her football journey. He added that the footballer’s many values, such as leadership, teamwork, and youth development, perfectly aligned with the company’s.
“She is a brilliant role model for young athletes and a true ambassador for Jamaica, with a tremendous future ahead. We look forward to what will undoubtedly be two great years of close collaboration,” Roper stated.
