England Rugby Partnership
Pizza the action: Papa Johns becomes official delivery and takeaway partner of England Rugby
With an exciting season of international rugby ahead, it only seemed fitting to become the official pizza delivery and takeaway partner of England Rugby for a mammoth five years! We’re extremely excited to be on this journey supporting both the Men’s and Women’s squads.
So expect to see us debut during the Red Roses September International where they take on the USA and Wales as well as the Men’s Autumn Nations Series where England take on Argentina, Japan, New Zealand and South Africa, with a few surprises along the way!
But it is not all about the international teams for us. We will be working with community clubs to boost participation in rugby across England with the newly named, Papa Johns Community Cup. The cup will take place at the end of every season between with the ultimate prize of a showpiece finals day at an iconic ground.
The cup, is part of the biggest changes to RFU leagues rugby in 30 years with the ultimate aim to improve player retention and to attract new players to the game. Following the changes made by the RFU, it is incredible to see teams taking part in what will now be the Papa Johns Community Cup.
During our partnership with England Rugby, you can expect fantastic merchandise competitions, the chance to get up close and personal with ticket giveaways, and even a Papa Johns concession at Twickenham, serving up delicious slices to supporters on matchday. Sounds good right?
This comes as part of our growing commitment to supporting grassroots sport in the UK via its other rugby partners Scotland Rugby, Welsh Rugby Union, and Leicester Tigers. Also in football, with its title sponsorship of the EFL Trophy (now the Papa Johns Trophy) and club partnerships with the likes of MK Dons and Leyton Orient FC.
