The DC Breeze Professional Ultimate Disc team and Papa John’s of the National Capital Region are please to announce a continued relationship for the 207 season. Papa John’s will again be the Breeze jersey sponsor and the Official Pizza of the DC Breeze for the 2017 season. The Breeze will serve Papa John’s pizza exclusively at home games and represent the brand at halftime contests and other activities. The partners will also promote each other through newsletters, web and social media.

“We are proud to partner for a third year with Papa John’s, not only because of their unparalleled track record in sports-related promotion, but also because Papa John’s really ‘gets’ what we’re trying to build — both on the playing field and also as an intensely exciting, yet family-friendly outing.” says DC Breeze Co-Owner Kellen Furness. “Our growing relationship has benefited both organizations since we first partnered in 2015. We look forward to continued efforts to increase Papa John’s presence in the rapidly growing DC ultimate community, while expanding our own reach throughout the National Capital Region.”

As the Official Pizza of the DC Breeze, Papa John’s and the DC Breeze will work together to provide fans with ticket + pizza combination packages for Breeze home games, branded Meal Deals at Breeze home games (value purchase with pizza, drink, and side), and the BREEZE50 promo code for half-off online orders the day after any Breeze victory at participating DMV locations. The team’s logo, schedule and BREEZE50 promo code will also be placed on home delivered pizza boxes throughout the DC area this spring.
“Papa John’s is a leader in both National and Local Sports Sponsorships and we believe these partnerships bring our communities together over the love of sports and pizza. The time is right to break into another sport,” says Andy Freitas, owner of more than 60 Papa John’s franchises in the DC Metro area.
