KFC Canada Launches World’s First Winterized Outdoor Basketball Court

KFC Canada partnered with Toronto Raptors star Gary Trent Jr. to open its new winterized outdoor basketball court. The court is the world’s first of its kind and will be available to Toronto residents between Jan 26-Feb 22, 2023. 

Designed to reach the Toronto local basketball community, the campaign will feature a variety of experiences and giveaways in addition to the new court, including: 

  • Pre-warmed basketballs 

  • Rotating DJs courtesy of LiveNation 

  • Pepsi sponsored warming center 

  • KFC samples and UberEats promo codes 

  • Chance to win a limited-edition Number 11 Puffer Jersey 

“Canadians love for Finger Lickin’ Good buckets is only matched by their love of buckets on the basketball court,” says Azim Akhtar, Director of Marketing, KFC Canada. “That’s why we wanted to bring these two worlds together like only KFC can and create an epic winterized court that feeds Canadians’ growing passion for basketball.” 

As part of the advertising campaign, the court features baskets designed like KFC buckets. Media and ads will be featured across television and social media spots.
