The Buccaneers announced the sponsorship deal on their official website.

Orlando Pirates have announced Roman’s Pizza as the club’s official pizza restaurant partner on Wednesday.

“Having over 230 stores nationwide and striving to always live up to its standard of providing the Best Pizza for the Best Value, Orlando Pirates fans will be sure to have a restaurant that supports their Club close to their homes,” read a club statement.

Pirates’ brand & sponsorship manager Joseph Bertrand said: “The Orlando Pirates brand is always looking at the best synergies between the club and potential sponsors. Seeing the history of Roman’s Pizza in the country and its efforts to always provide great quality products for families at reasonable prices is an initiative that we encourage and want to be part of during these times where the economic outlook is a little bit tense.”

The new partnership will also reward the fans attending the Buccaneers home games in the Absa Premiership.

Any fan that purchases a valid ticket to Pirates home league match will be entitled to use their ticket as a voucher to receive R15 off a minimum purchase of R50 at any Roman’s Pizza outlet nationwide, within seven days of the end of the matches.

Bertrand added: “In a nutshell, an Orlando Pirates home match ticket now becomes a discount voucher for the Bucs supporters who bought a match ticket to support the Buccaneers at their home, Orlando Stadium.

“The club and our partner Roman’s Pizza want to show our appreciation to the fans by rewarding the Bucs faithful that attend our home matches. This type of partnership is a first of its kind in South Africa and we are both happy and proud of this launch.”

Roman’s Pizza chief marketing officer Bonnie Cooper revealed that a new Orlando Pirates Pizza meal will also be launched in the next few months.

Cooper said: “Roman’s Pizza is exceptionally proud to partner up with Orlando Pirates as the new official pizza restaurant partner. We are elated to have been selected and feel that the partnership serves various purposes, specifically one of unionship, where Pirates fans can simply enjoy the Best Pizza at the Best Value! It’s a win-win situation! No pun intended!’’
