"Boston Pizza has always been a destination for sports
fans, but it's also a place where athletes and sports teams love to dine,"
said Joanne Forrester, vice-president of marketing, Boston Pizza International,
in a news release. "As we head into the busy winter sports season, we're
excited to give athletes and parents everything they need to fuel up so they
can play their best."

Kelly Anne Erdman, a cycling Olympian and performance
dietitian at the Canadian Sport Institute Calgary, worked closely with Boston
Pizza and Hockey Canada to develop the menu and help ensure it meets the unique
dietary needs of athletes, said the release.

"I have a lot of experience working with elite Canadian
athletes, including the National Women's Hockey Team, and I'm excited to use my
knowledge to help everyday Canadian athletes make the right pre- and post-game
dining choices to support their best performances," says Erdman.

Available at all locations, the new menu includes Sriracha
Chicken pizza topped with sriracha sauce, mozzarella, sriracha chicken and
sesame seeds, green onions, cilantro and a sriracha mayo drizzle; and Whole
Wheat Pollo Marinara Linguini with signature marinara sauce with diced chicken
breast, red onions and steamed red and green pepper on whole wheat noodles.
