TGI Fridays Director of Operations, Amaresh Devanesen said they were excited to be named the Official Restaurant of the AIHL.
“We are thrilled to be the Official Restaurant of the AIHL,” Devanesen said. “At TGI Fridays, we are huge hockey fans and all our restaurants will be screening in-season NHL games and all the AIHL we can.”
AIHL Commissioner Robert Bannerman said there is a natural fit between TGI Fridays and the AIHL.
“We’re proud to partner with TGI Fridays as the Official Restaurant of the AIHL,” Bannerman said. “We believe no matter who you support, hockey fans are a community. It’s important to have a place that AIHL fans can unite, to watch the AIHL game of the week on Fox Sports, NHL games, and share stories.”
TGI Fridays will host the Official After Party of the 2015 AIHL Finals at TGI Fridays Melbourne Central (Level 3, 313 Melbourne Central, Corner of LaTrobe and Swanston Streets, Melbourne VIC 3000). Fans are invited to join AIHL players, coaches, and administrators from 7:45pm to late.
