The Leicester Falcons are proud to announce another sponsor to their growing ranks of supporters. This new sponsor is Plukd Chicken.

Plukd is a gourmet street food outlet and live event catering company. Plukd’s Plukd, our mission is simple… we want to serve you the best Pluckin’ wings in town!! Our wings are hand rubbed daily in store with our unique blend of herbs and spices. Plukd’s chefs fry them until crispy and golden, before tossing them in one of our signature sauces. They don’t Pluk about with our food. We believe in 100% ethically sourced, British chicken. Animal welfare is important to us because we understand a happier chicken is a tastier chicken.

Plukd will have their mobile kitchen at all the Falcons home games with their devious wings and sides and a must try is the Foreos a dessert that change your life forever

Falcons GM, Guy Kersey, said:

“I am tremendously happy to have Justin and his team at Plukd on board with us, I can absolutely stand by their claim they have the best plucking wings in town.

For me the match day experience is essential and a huge part of that is to have a high quality food offering, and with Plukd we will have high quality gourmet food as part of our great match day experience.”
