Papa John’s Scores Award Hat Trick for Football League Sponsorship

Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has scored an award ‘hat trick’ for its innovative sponsorship of the Football League last year. Papa John’s which became the ‘Official Pizza Partner’ of the Football League, has just been confirmed as the winner of the PAPA Marketing Award which recognises successful marketing and promotional initiatives by businesses operating in the UK pizza, pasta and Italian food industry.

"The Football League is the world’s original League football competition and in its 125th anniversary year it was a great time for us to join forces," confirms Andrew Gallagher, Papa John’s marketing director.  

"A significant amount of thought went into the sponsorship campaign and how it could support and benefit our franchisees. It created a great connection with football fans and established awareness with key customer groups. We are delighted to be recognised for our industry best practice in this way."

Papa John’s took to social media to engage with fans across the country to assess what type of offer they would like. The results saw ‘Score Twice Half Price’ go top of the league with 71% of the votes. The promotion enabled fans to order half price pizzas if their team scored twice in a match. The Score Twice Half Price offer was supported by an integrated talkSPORT campaign which saw the deal promoted both on air and online, as well as via Football League clubs’ social media channels.

The Papa Marketing Awards described the campaign: "Association marketing is a challenge but Papa John’s pulled out all the stops with this stand-out campaign. The humour, visual impact and choice of partnership aligned wonderfully and the bottom line impacts were impressive. A fine case study for marketers everywhere."
