KFC is taking footy season seriously by creating some finger-licking good treats for footy fans across Australia. And, not only are the new additions delicious, but you can get your hands of them for free, too.

The Colonel himself has gone out of his way to enhance the footy experience by providing some delicious treats for both your mouths and your ears.

Partnering with the NRL and AFL, KFC knew they needed to step things up and soundtrack the 2023 footy season. The result? The ‘Fried Night Footy’ anthem, a catchy tune performed by Shannon Noll and Aussie legends DZ Deathrays.  You can expect to hear it in KFC footy advertising throughout the season.

In addition to the foot-tapping anthem, footy fans will be able to get a taste of Shannon Noll with KFC creating a special menu item on his behalf. Introducing the ‘Shannon Dinner Roll’. This delicious new creation is a bite-sized version of the delicious KFC flavours you know and love.

“I’m super happy to be working with KFC and DZ Deathrays on this anthem. It’s a definite earworm and you’re gonna catch yourself singing it in the shower, the car and maybe even in your sleep! Plus, working with KFC to create the Shannon Roll, talk about a dream come true,” Shannon Noll said of his collaboration with KFC.

It takes KFC’s latest and greatest – Hot & Crispy Boneless – with chilli relish, cheese, lettuce, KFC’s iconic Supercharged Sauce all served up on a famous KFC Dinner Roll. The ‘Shannon Dinner Roll’ shines above your regular footy snack and comes second to none.

The ‘Shannon Dinner Roll’ will be served up for free at Kayo Stadium in Redcliffe on Saturday, March 11.

So head on down to the Dolphin’s first home game as they debut in the NRL to be one of the first to sample this tasty treat.

Imagine this, it’s halftime at the footy, your team is winning, and you’re ready for a snack. You spot the KFC Food Truck in the distance, and they’re serving up the delicious ‘Shannon Dinner Roll’. As ‘Fried Night Footy’ plays gently in the background, the stars have aligned, and you know you’re in for a treat. KFC has truly outdone themselves this footy season, and we can’t wait to indulge in their finger-licking goodness.
