Domino's Pizza® Renews Sponsorship of the Domino's DomiNoNo for 2014 and 2015 MLB seasons
Domino's will give away 20,000 pizzas following each of the first two no-hitters of each season
ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Domino's Pizza, the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, again will be celebrating one of the most exciting moments in America's favorite pastime by giving away one of America's favorite foods: pizza. 40,000 of them, to be exact.
All registered MLB.com users will be eligible to receive a free pizza. Domino's will give away 20,000 pizzas after each of the first two no-hitters – which is double the amount given away in the 2013 season. Spurred by furious social media activity and fan excitement, last year's first two no-hitters, which took place less than two weeks apart in July, saw the entire allotment of pizzas claimed in under two hours.
"Domino's is thrilled to recognize and celebrate one of the great achievements in sports – the no-hitter – by continuing this very cool partnership with MLB.com," said Chris Brandon, Domino's Pizza spokesperson. "This is now bigger and better as we prepare to give away 40,000 pizzas both seasons, and make it easier for all baseball fans to get in on the excitement."
The first 20,000 baseball fans who visit and log in to MLB.com/dominos after a no-hitter is thrown will receive a code for a free, two-topping medium Handmade Pan Pizza (carryout only) when they order online from dominos.com. The DomiNoNo offer is available until 20,000 codes are given away, or for five days starting at 3 p.m. EDT on the business day following the no-hitter. The promotion is valid after each of the first two no-hitters of the 2014 and 2015 MLB seasons.
To further spur baseball fans' enthusiasm when a no-hitter is in progress, the promotion will again leverage multiple digital platforms. When a no-hitter is in progress through the sixth inning of any game, fans will be encouraged to follow #DomiNoNo and @MLB on Twitter for up-to-the-moment game alerts or watch live video on MLB.com or the award-winning MLB.com At Bat mobile app.
