– Champions League Final and Anthony Joshua fight tipped to make Saturday 1 June the busiest day of pizza sales this year so far –
– Domino’s predicts 114 pizzas will be ordered every minute on the biggest day of sport this year –
Domino’s is predicting its busiest day of pizza orders in 2019 so far this Saturday, with most of Ireland expected to tune in to the Champions League Final clash between Liverpool and Tottenham, Anthony Joshua’s US boxing debut, the Premiership Rugby Final at Twickenham, the Epsom Derby and the Cricket World Cup.
The nation’s favourite pizzamaker is dubbing the occasion ‘Super Saturday’ and expects to freshly-handmake more than 82,000 pizzas throughout the day.
7pm is predicted to be peak ordering time – one hour before the Champions League final kicks off – and Domino’s has drafted in extra pizza chefs to fulfil an expected two orders every second. Whilst Irish roads are expected to be unusually quiet, 7.25pm will be peak delivery time with drivers out and about delivering over 665,000 slices of piping hot pizza to hungry sports fans.
The total number of pizzas delivered on Super Saturday would stretch over 15 miles – more than 250 times the length of Liverpool’s Anfield pitch.
Scott Bush, Operations Director at Domino’s commented: “Two major clubs with massive followings in the Champions League Final could make Saturday the biggest pizza occasion of 2019. Whatever team you support or whatever sport you’re watching, we have thousands of pizza chefs primed and ready to serve the millions of football, rugby, cricket, horse-racing and boxing fans glued to screens.”

⎯ 114 pizzas expected a minute

⎯ Pizzas sold during the day are expected to stretch over 15 miles or more than 250 football pitches
⎯ Over 665,000 slices of pizza are expected to be eaten
