Wawa and the Philadelphia Eagles will be teaming up both on and off the field for many years to come.
The football franchise signed a multi-year agreement, naming Wawa as the “proud partner” and “official hoagie” of the Philadelphia Eagles. Both organizations made the announcement at the Eagles practice on Friday, when Wawa associates handed head coach Chip Kelly a Hoagiefest shirt and a box of his favorite hoagies.
Both companies want to offer unique experiences to Eagles fans, such as promotions, game ticket raffles and even autographed merchandise. Wawa will also have a game-day presence, as signs will be placed around Lincoln Financial Field.
“For Eagles fans, walking into a Wawa is like walking into their seating section at Lincoln Financial Field – it feels like home,” Eagles President Don Smolenski said. “We share similar cultures based on teamwork and delighting our fans and we are proud to team up with them.”
Chris Gheysens, the President and CEO of Wawa, Inc. said he is ‘thrilled’ to partner up with the Eagles and have the opportunity to mesh two popular hometown brands together.
