Screamin’ Sicilian has been named the Official Frozen Pizza of Bucks Gaming. The pizza brand, manufactured by locally based Palermo Villa, Inc., will provide the team with unlimited Screamin’ Sicilian Singles and Screamin’ Sicilian Strombolis, fueling the team as its inaugural season in the NBA 2K League continues.
“We are delighted that our Bucks Gaming players will have delicious, filling Stromboli and pizza from Screamin’ Sicilian readily accessible to them as they continue mastering their craft,” said Co-Managing Director of Bucks Gaming Colin Hayes.
“Jumping in on the ground floor for the inaugural season of Bucks Gaming has been exciting,” said Mike Pytlinski, Vice President of Marketing for Palermo Villa, Inc. “When the opportunity came along to be the Official Frozen Pizza of Bucks Gaming, we knew that Screamin’ Sicilian was the perfect fit. Our Screamin’ Sicilian ‘I’m Single’ and Stromboli are the perfect option for a quick, delicious, grab-and-go meal to keep the players fueled as they take on their first season.”
In addition to Screamin’ Sicilian product filling the freezers of Bucks Gaming’s downtown Milwaukee performance center and housing, it will also have branded displays in both facilities.
After competing in the second mid-season tournament, The Ticket, last weekend, Bucks Gaming will resume its regular season schedule on Saturday, with matchups against Raptors Uprising GC (12 p.m. CT) and against Wizards District Gaming (5 p.m. CT). Both games can be streamed live here.
