Dick's Sporting Goods Park Enters New Pizza Sponsorship with Aliki Foods

Dick’s Sporting Goods Park has entered into an agreement with Aliki Foods to offer Aliki’s 7-inch pan pizzas at their concession stands, it was announced today.

Aliki Foods’ 7” pan pizzas are made with a long-standing family pizza sauce recipe and a special cheese blend and now will be available at all Colorado Rapids home games and other in-stadium events.

“We are glad to be adding Aliki Foods to our family of partners,” said Rapids Director of Corporate Sponsorship Ken Blasi. “We are always looking for opportunities to enhance our guests’ experience at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park and offer them the best in quality food options, and we feel Aliki Foods share in that mission as well.”

Michael Pappas, the President of Aliki Foods, which is based in Old Lyme, Connecticut, is proud of his Greek grandmother’s specialty pizza sauce.

“My grandmother’s homemade pizza sauce was made from fresh tomatoes from my grandfather’s garden and consisted of a blend of fantastic spices,” he said. “I wanted to duplicate that freshness everybody could enjoy. My grandmother, Aliki, would be proud to know her recipe is a part of the Denver community, where more people can enjoy our quality pizza.”

As part of the sponsorship, the Rapids will be offering special Family Night packages to fans that include four tickets to a Rapids home game, four Aliki pizzas, and four sodas for just $69. There will be four Aliki Rapids Family Nights throughout the 2009 season starting with this Saturday, March 28, as well as the games on July 11, August 1, and September 23. Family Night packages are available at or by calling (303) 825-GOAL (4625).
