Kick Off for Players!

Date published: 26 April 2019

Get ready for a fast food revolution in Rochdale starting Saturday 27 April at 1pm. That’s when Players, a new sports-themed dining concept, opens its doors at 11 Oldham Road OL16 1UA. Come along and join in a day of celebrations, promotions, offers and much more. And if you are one of the first 200 customers, you will receive a FREE burger (beef or chicken only)!



What makes Players different?

Players is the brainchild of founders and avid sports fans Izzy and Kay who, after running many successful franchises with Pizza Hut, Subway, Creams Cafe and more, wanted to create a vibrant and fun place to hang out, socialise and grab some great food, all themed around sport.

Alongside making a welcoming space for fans of all sports, Players brings together the best in food quality and innovative design. From sports-themed burgers and chicken wings, to healthier options, desserts and shakes, there is something to keep everyone happy.

What’s more, all Players food is certified halal, while a variety of vegetarian and allergy-friendly options is always available.
