The DC Breeze and Papa John’s announced today that Papa John’s of the National Capital Region will be the Official Pizza of the DC Breeze for the 2015 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.

“It is certainly a bonus to partner with an organization that has such a long and successful track record in sports-related promotion.” says DC Breeze Co-Owner Don Grage. “With the launch of this partnership we have the opportunity to increase Papa John’s presence considerably in the rapidly growing DC ultimate community, while expanding our own reach in the Metro area as a whole.”

As the Official Pizza of the DC Breeze, Papa John’s and the DC Breeze will work together to provide fans:
Ticket + pizza combination packages for Breeze home games.
Half-price deals on large pizzas the day after Breeze victories at participating DC, MD and VA locations with promo code BREEZEWIN. This promotion will begin the 2nd game of the season.

“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 50 Papa John’s franchises in the DC Metro area.
