The partnership includes a combination of advertising in and around The SSE Arena, Belfast, fan giveaways, warm-up jersey sponsorship, and meals for the team as fuel before and after games.
The partnership comes as news of a brand-new Zizzi restaurant is due to launch next month, the second location in Belfast to complement the popular Victoria Square restaurant. The new Zizzi Odyssey restaurant is due to open at Odyssey Place as part of its major transformation. Zizzi is a welcome addition to the Odyssey Place where customers can enjoy day-to-night family entertainment in the heart of the Titanic Quarter.
Patrick O’Brien, Operations Manager at Zizzi Ireland said: “The Belfast Giants is a huge part of the local community and their recent victories have proved what a fantastic sport it is. We know the players are huge fans of dishes we have on offer, and we can’t wait to welcome them and new customers to our brand-new Odyssey restaurant due to open soon.”
Steve Thornton, Head of Commercial and Hockey Operations at Belfast Giants said: “We are delighted to have partnered with Zizzi. Our fans will be very excited to know that there is a Zizzi restaurant neighbouring the arena so they can enjoy a pre or post-game treat.”
Zizzi Belfast Odyssey follows recent new restaurant openings across the UK. Over the past twelve months, Zizzi has opened 5 new restaurants and unveiled 13 transformed restaurants in the latest iteration of their new style. Last year, the much-loved Italian restaurant brand also announced the anticipated launch of the Zillionaires’ Club loyalty platform, rewarded customers each time they visit a Zizzi restaurant, use click and collect and purchase Zizzi for delivery.
