DEDHAM, Mass. – Papa Gino’s and the New England Revolution are teaming up to host the “Play, Eat, Score” contest for a seventh consecutive year. The contest awards five local New England youth soccer teams each year with an unforgettable experience: a surprise visit from a Revolution player and a Papa Gino’s pizza party at their soccer practice, as well as tickets to a Revs home match at Gillette Stadium.
“The Revolution are proud to team up with Papa Gino’s once again for the “Play, Eat, Score” contest,” said New England Revolution President Brian Bilello. “Papa Gino’s is a fantastic supporter and partner of the club, and we are always excited to give some of our young fans a chance to meet and learn from their Revolution heroes while enjoying Papa Gino’s pizza.”
Teams can be nominated to win “Play, Eat, Score” by completing an entry form here. Coaches, family members, and players are encouraged to enter submissions explaining what sets their teams apart from the rest. Winners will be selected and awarded from April – May 2019.
Last year, the “Play, Eat, Score” program connected Revolution coaches and star players with local youth soccer organizations across the region. New England Revolution Head Coach Brad Friedel, as well as players including Andrew Farrell and Jalil Anibaba attended a practice session of winning teams, helping teach the young players some of the skills and drills that they learned on their path to becoming pros, while also delivering Papa Gino’s pizza to the teams.
“Our participation in “Play, Eat, Score” is an opportunity for us to give back to the New England communities that have supported us for so many years,” said CMO Deena McKinley. “Creating lasting memories with families and supporting our local youth is simply part of the authentic Papa Gino’s experience.”
As an integral part of New England and the local community for over half a century, Papa Gino’s is committed to continue strengthening our hometown connections through partnerships with local sports teams such as the New England Revolution and community-based programs like the “Play, Eat, Score.”
In addition to the surprise visit and Papa Gino’s Pizza Party, each winning team receives a prize pack that not only includes great items from both Papa Gino’s and the New England Revolution, but also tickets for the winning team to attend an agreed upon, regular season home game at Gillette Stadium.
