McCain Canada, the world’s largest manufacturer of prepared potato products, has signed a three-year partnership agreement with the Toronto Blue Jays, becoming the official French Fries of the team and the official host of Fry Day with McCain at the ballpark.

“We are thrilled to partner with McCain, a brand that shares our passion for excellence and innovation,” said David O’Reilly, Director of Partnership Development, Toronto Blue Jays. “This partnership represents an exciting opportunity to bring together friends, family and fans alike in-and-out of the Rogers Centre to have fun and create new memorable moments. We are pleased to celebrate our shared values and commitment to the fan experience.”

Exclusive to all Friday home games throughout the 2024 season, McCain will be serving its specialty loaded fry recipe served in a reusable Blue Jays helmet, along with offering fans limited-edition twists on the loaded fry recipe, inspired by the Toronto Blue Jays 2024 Promotions and Events schedule. Officially released today, McCain shares two of the featured limited-edition recipes upcoming that fans can expect at the Rogers Center on the theme nights:

On May 10th for Cricket Night at the Park, fans can indulge in the Dehli’tine loaded fries, featuring McCain SureCrisp fries dusted with chaat masala, shredded Paneer cheese topped with butter chicken sauce and drizzled with mint chutney.

Then, on May 17th for Country Night, fans can savour the Yee-haw Burnt-ends poutine. This delectable dish showcases McCain SureCrisp fries topped with smoked brisket, cheese curds and drizzled with a Tennessee-style BBQ sauce and spicy mayo, all sprinkled with pickled jalapenos.

“We are equally excited about our partnership and the opportunity to align with one of Major League Baseball’s most iconic franchises and a long-standing Canadian organization. Joining forces with the Toronto Blue Jays is a testament to our dedication to Canadians, community, and togetherness,” says Mike Embir, Marketing Director at McCain Foods Canada. “We look forward to collaborating closely with the Blue Jays to create unforgettable moments for friends and families to make a positive impact both on and off the field.”
