BOCA RATON, FL, 27 March 2020 - The Overwatch Leagues’ transition to regional Homestands in 2020 has created an incredible opportunity for teams like us to show appreciation to our Florida fans and create unforgettable experiences. Today we share one of our projects - our premier partnership with Zaxby’s as the Official Match Time Meal for the Florida Mayhem and upcoming Florida Mayhem events.
The partnership kicks off this weekend when the Florida Mayhem are back in action after the OWL postponement. The partnership will also feature some fun tailgating and in-store activities later this year. With more than 900 total locations, and nearly 100 in Florida, Zaxbys’ chain of fast-casual restaurants is best known for its chicken wings, chicken fingers and signature sauces.
“In these difficult times, we’re thrilled to have a versatile partner in Zaxby’s, that could adapt from live event activations to online activities for fans watching the broadcast,” said Ben Spoont, CEO and co-founder of Misfits Gaming Group. “Florida Mayhem fans will be able to take part in Zaxby’s competitions and deals while watching matches from the safety of their own homes.”
“We’re excited about the opportunity to fuel esports fans with Zaxby’s famous hand-breaded chicken,” explains Joel Bulger, CMO of Zaxby’s Franchising, LLC. “It’s the perfect meal to enjoy between matches.”
Another amazing component to the partnership, is Zaxby’s will be the official Match-time meal of the Florida Mayhem. Fans can tag Mayhem/Zaxby’s and use the hashtag #matchtimemeal to win a $25 gift card. One winner will be chosen at random each day the Mayhem play for the rest of the season. Zaxby’s locations will be staying open for pick up and deliveries throughout the Coronavirus Pandemic.
