#ChennaiyinFC Leaves Field to Bake Pizza for a Change at Papa John’s Pizza

Papa John’s Pizza in Nungambakkam high road wore a festive look and was abuzz with activity today (2nd November 2015 at 5.30 PM).  This place is the venue for an activity of a different nature with the football celebrities. Who else? Our own Chennaiyin FC. The event – team members of Chennaiyin FC to try their hands in baking a Papa John’s Pizza for the public for a change. We along with the media and Chennaiyin FC fans eagerly awaited the arrival of our striker from Columbia, Stiven Mendoza,  Attacking mid fielder from Brazil,  Bruno Pellisari, Our Central mid-fielder Thoi Singh and Goal keeper Karanjit Singh  to participate in the event.



Papa John’s Pizza was closed for public and we were made comfortable by the organizers. Hospitality was at its best and kudos to the organizers. We were well in time and the team arrived around 6.10 pm without making us wait. The team members got onto the job within few minutes and the players donned the chef’s apron and hat. Papa John’s Pizza chef demonstrated pizza making to the players and every player tried their hands into kneading the dough and getting the pizza ready. No bites or interviews by the team. We presume it must be because Indian Super League 2015 is currently under way.





It was media everywhere and in the outlet, it was vying to get closer and Papa John’s had the responsibility of keeping the kitchen clean and hygienic and so restrained people from entering the kitchen en mass. We understood their concern and watched the proceeding through the glass window. Once the Pizzas were baked, the team presented it to the Chennaiyin FC club fans as they stood in awe for the opportunity to stand next to the favorite stars.

India is home to varied sports and we are happy that football is getting patronage from leading business tycoons and celebrities. We are happy to see media presence to cover this event of Chennaiyin FC and wish more media coverage and appreciation develops for this sport. Indian Super League (ISL) 2015 is currently On.
