Replace: After followers specific their dissatisfaction, Hounds cease chick-fil-a-action
Following significant feedback from the club’s most avid supporters, the Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC decided to discontinue its promotion with the McKnight Road location of the international fast food chain Chick-fil-A.
After many hours of deliberation, responses and formal statements from the Iron City Front team’s largest support groups, Steel Army and Mon Goals fan podcast, the association released a statement:
Upon reviewing the feedback, Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC will end its proposed promotion and sale of Chick-fil-A sandwiches at home games this season.
Riverhounds SC would like to thank the locally independently operated McKnight Road Chick-fil-A for their cooperation, and the club will be selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches during Saturday’s game against Loudoun United FC to fulfill our original agreement. But after consulting with our fan groups and assessing the feedback from our fans, the decision was made not to continue the promotion beyond this week’s game.
Hounds and Highmark Stadium firmly believes that all of our fans are made to feel welcome and we look forward to doing it again for tomorrow’s game. As an organization, we will continue to look for ways to work with local and national brands to improve the gaming experience for everyone.
After considering the feedback, the club has decided to end its Chick-fil-A promotion after tomorrow’s game against Loudoun.
