‘Play, Eat, Score’ Contest For Youth Soccer Teams

Papa Gino’s and the New England Revolution are teaming up for a fourth consecutive year for the “Play, Eat, Score” contest. The contest awards five local New England youth soccer teams with the ultimate prize: a surprise visit from a Revolution player and a Papa Gino’s pizza party at their soccer practice.

“The Revolution are proud to once again partner with Papa Gino’s for the “Play, Eat, Score” contest,” said New England Revolution President, Brian Bilello. “Papa Gino’s has been a fantastic supporter of the Revolution and we are excited to be able to work with them again 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” through an entry form that can be found online at www.revolutionsoccer.net, the official website of the Revolution. Coaches, family members and players are encouraged to enter their teams. Winners will be selected and awarded from April – June 2016.

Last year, the “Play, Eat, Score” program connected a number of Revolution stars with local youth soccer organizations. Players such as Darrius Barnes, Steve Neumann, Brad Knighton and Scott Caldwell attended a practice session of the 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.

“Papa Gino’s truly believes in this program,” said CEO Mark DeBlois. “It’s a great opportunity for youth athletes to meet and practice with their role models and enjoy a pizza party from New England’s hometown pizzeria.”

In addition to the surprise visit and Papa Gino’s Pizza Party, each winning team receives a prize pack that includes great items from both Papa Gino’s and the New England Revolution.

To enter your team to win, visit www.revolutionsoccer.net/playeatscore and explain why your team should have a Revolution player deliver the prize package to your practice.
