SINGAPORE - If you are staying up for Sunday (May 29) morning's Champions League football final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, which kicks off at 2.45am Singapore time, and the hunger pangs strike, you will be able to get food delivered to your doorstep by foodpanda.

The food delivery service is starting a trial run to serve up all-night deliveries for major sporting events, with a view to rolling out the initiative every weekend.

In a statement on Tuesday (May 24), foodpanda said it will be delivering meals islandwide with partner vendors Burger King, Pezzo, Manhattan Fish Market and Nene Chicken.

 

Fast food giant McDonald's also offers 24-hour deliveries in Singapore, while the cut-off times to order from KFC and Pizza Hut is 11pm.

To commemorate its new offering, foodpanda is waiving delivery fees - which typically vary from $4 to $15, depending on the restaurant - from Saturday until 5am on Sunday.

Foodpanda Singapore's managing director Emma Heap said of the late-night food service: "We receive a lot of feedback from customers and this is something they have been asking for."
