Toronto – McCain Foods Canada, the world's largest manufacturer of prepared potato products, has signed a three-year partnership agreement with the Toronto Blue Jays.

As part of the partnership, the Toronto Blue Jays and McCain are inviting Canadians to Make It A Fry Day with their family and friends during Fry Days with McCain at the ballpark. Exclusive to all Friday home games throughout the 2024 season, McCain will be premiering its specialty loaded fry recipe served in a reusable Blue Jays helmet. The specialty fry offer was available as of the first Friday home game of the 2024 season at Rogers Centre, Friday April 12.

"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."

Fry Days with McCain is the first of many exciting initiatives planned. Continuing to elevate the fan experience, on select theme nights McCain will offer limited edition twists on the specialty loaded fry recipe, inspired by the Toronto Blue Jays 2024 Promotions and Events schedule. On May 10 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 17 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.
