DOMINO’S ADDS NEW ‘MEATFIELDER’ PIZZA TO ITS WORLD CUP LINE UP (IRELAND)

– Newest menu addition to be made collectable in special Pizza-nini sticker album –

– Domino’s is searching for over 230 team members to help deliver a World Cup summer –

 

Domino’s, the nation’s favourite pizza, has added a special edition ‘Meatfielder’ pizza to its menu ahead of the World Cup. The dough-licious new addition is set to be a firm fan favourite and comes packed with pepperoni, ham, chorizo, pork meatballs, smoked bacon and Domino’s secret sauce.

 

The ‘Meatfielder’ is available in 78 stores countrywide throughout the tournament and has even been made into a collector’s item as a sticker in Domino’s new ‘Pizza-nini’ sticker book – an ‘apeeling’ twist on the much-loved Panini book that gives superfans a chance to collect 11 of their favourite pizzas. Other collectables include football-inspired twists of Domino’s classics like Vegi Volkaneo, Pepereina Passion, Mighty Messi and Romaldo. Those who collect their first 11 will win a free, freshly handmade ‘Meatfielder’ for the World Cup Final.

 

The special edition stickers are officially available on OfficialFoodOfEverything.ie website from 2pm on Wednesday 13 June, with books available to claim on a first come first served basis. A second batch will be released at 2pm the next day for super sticker fans to be in with a chance of filling their albums.

 

Domino’s is also looking for 234 team members, who will help handcraft and deliver over 350,000 pizzas during the World Cup alone. Domino’s is predicting one pizza will be ordered every three seconds, with hungry fans munching over a whopping three million slices throughout the competition.

 

Peter Foley, Domino’s spokesperson for Ireland, said: “With a bumper summer of sport, we’re looking for over 230 team members and expect to serve up over 350,000 pizzas during the World Cup alone. We wanted to get in the football spirit with some Pizza-nini stickers and are delighted to call up our new ‘Meatfielder’ to the Domino’s menu, which will be around for the whole of the tournament, so Irish fans can enjoy a slice of the action, despite not qualifying!”

 

World Cup 2018 in numbers:

- 17 pizzas ordered every minute of every day
