Pepsi, Pizza Hut Sweeps: Want To Go To Super Bowl LIII With Todd Gurley?

By Barry Janoff

November 19, 2018: The Los Angeles Rams are having a season that could take them far into the playoffs en route to Super Bow LIII in Atlanta.

But even if they don’t make it, Rams running back Todd Gurley is helping others to get there.

NFL partners Pepsi and Pizza Hut have untied for “Do You Want To Go To Super Bowl LIII?” a sweepstakes offering tickets to the game and the opportunity to be on the field in Mercedes-Benz Stadium for the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show.

Support includes multi-media marketing, with Gurley taking a lead role in an anchor spot and other activation.

Pepsi has been the sponsor of the Super Bowl Halftime Show since 2013, and the official soft drink sponsor of the NFL since 2002.

Pizza Hut became the NFL’s official partner last season, taking over from Papa John’s.

"Pepsi has been a core partner to our business since we opened our doors in 1958, so extending the partnership to the largest stage in sports makes sense on so many levels," Marianne Radley, chief brand officer for Pizza Hut, said via the company.

"We're two brands rooted in entertainment, and we're excited to take our long-standing partnership to the next level by giving fans the ultimate experience this Super Bowl Sunday."

Starting this week, people can enter the Pepsi Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show Sweepstakes by purchasing limited-edition Pepsi 4-Pack carriers, available at all Pizza Hut locations while supplies last, and entering a code from the product on a dedicated Web site.

People can also share their homegate on Twitter using #HutxPepsiSweepstakes for a chance to win.

Two people will win tickets for them and a guest to attend Super Bowl LIII and view the Pepsi Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show from the field on Feb. 3, 2019.

Additional prizes such as NFL gear will be awarded to people who enter the contest before Dec. 31. (Details here.)

In its first year as the NFL’s official pizza sponsor, Pizza Hut said it has “delivered the in-stadium experience to football fans' living rooms all season long through Game Plan, a digital platform that allows fans to sign up for exclusive game day deals, NFL kickoff reminders and weekly prizes,” as well as marketing and social content including Gurley, Jared Goff, Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Tyler Lockett.
