Phoenix Rising FC Branded Pizza Boxes to Appear Valley-Wide

(PHOENIX) May 31, 2018 – Phoenix Rising FC and Venezia’s Pizzeria are teaming up, naming the New York-style pizzeria as the official pizza partner of the team.  Starting in June, customers will see Arizona’s own, Phoenix Rising FC, adorn the pizza boxes at all five Valley Venezia’s Pizzeria locations.

“Venezia’s is proud to be the Official Pizza Partner of Phoenix Rising,” said Domenick Montanile, Owner and President of Venezia’s Pizzeria. “Soccer brings people together, just like pizza does, so this partnership is a winning combination in our book. As a local pizza joint, we’re more than excited to be a part of the action and show our support for a local team doing big things.”

“We loved that Venezia’s is family owned, Arizona based and have a fundraising component to their organization,” said Sam Doerr, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Phoenix Rising FC. “They have a strong commitment to our community much like we do. It’s very important to us that we support local businesses and encourage our fans to do so as well.” 

In addition to the Phoenix Rising branded boxes, including Party Pizza and individual slice boxes, fans will also receive a discount on orders the day following each Phoenix Rising game, starting June 10. The discount dollar amount will be determined based on the number of goals scored by Phoenix Rising. For example, one goal scored is $1 off, two goals scored is $2 off, and so on, up to $5 off. This offer will be good for dine-in, takeout or delivery ($10 minimum before discount for in-store purchases and $15 minimum after discount on deliveries).
