Why does McDonald's choose to be an Olympic sponsor?

May 21, 2018

The Olympics is one of very few truly global events and we are a global company, operating in over 100 countries around the world. Many of our customers and staff love the Olympics, and our sponsorship means that they can get involved. For example, we give our best employees from around the world the opportunity to work in our restaurants at the Olympic Park – providing a unique opportunity to attend the Games and experience the culture of the host city. At London 2012, over 1,850 employees from McDonald's UK had the chance to participate as Games Makers at the Games, and were joined by  200 of our best crew members from around the world who make up our ‘Olympic Champion Crew'.
