Official Hot Sauce of the CFL

Toronto, Ontario – The Canadian Football League (CFL) announced today a new two year national sponsorship agreement with Reckitt Benckiser (Canada) Inc., and its FRANK’S® RedHot® brand, the leading Hot Sauce in Canada.

Designated as the “Official Hot Sauce of the CFL,” FRANK’S® RedHot® and its partnership with the CFL will be promoted across the country during the 2005 regular season in participating restaurants, bars and food merchant areas. As part of this new national partnership, FRANK’S® RedHot® will look to engage consumers and fans alike with various online and promotional contesting initiatives, including an opportunity to win one of ten trips to the 2005 Grey Cup. In BC this November, FRANK’S® RedHot® will also offer fans a chance to spice up their Canadian football championship experience onsite, with an interactive taste-testing tailgate party with the FRANK’S RedHot Mobile BBQ Unit.
