After signing an official agreement, the United States-based fast food chain has joined the Games’ sponsorship programme.
The agreement was signed in the presence of the Chilean Minister of Sports Jaime Pizarro, Harold Mayne-Nicholls, Vice President of the Chilean Olympic Committee Aquiles Gómez, and Carlos González, Executive Director of Arcos Dorados de McDonald’s.
Mayne-Nicholls said, “That they [McDonald’s] are with us is a tremendous incentive, tremendous flattery, and a great source of pride for us.”
“We hope that, between now and the Games, more and more companies will join, because that benefits us in the organisation, but also in the future projection of our activities.”
“For us, being part of this team, integrated with the corporation and all the athletes, is a great honor, since we have been supporting Olympic athletes for years.”
McDonald’s became an official partner of Team Chile last year after signing an agreement with the Chilean Olympic Committee.
As an official sponsor of Santiago 2023, McDonald’s joins Antofagasta Minerals, BancoEstado, Bornan Sports Technology, LATAM Airlines, Mitsubishi Motors and Ottobock.
From October 20 to November 5, the Pan American Games will take place, followed by the Parapan American Games from November 17 to 26.
