Pizza Hut® Offers Fantasy Football Owners The Opportunity To Win The Ultimate Trade Bait: Pizza!

For trade offers that need more "bite," fantasy owners can email [email protected] for a chance to win free pizza

PLANO, Texas, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Football has arrived! And with it comes preparation in many forms, from real world football teams making final roster moves to fantasy football owners building cheat sheets and settling into online draft rooms to select their players for the 2014 season.

Pizza Hut Offers Fantasy Football Owners The Opportunity to Win The Ultimate Trade Bait: Pizza!

But regardless of the amount of preparation, it never fails that every team will hit a crossroads with a player at some point during the season, and in the fantasy world, that often comes in the form of a trade.  Unfortunately, as all fantasy owners are aware, not all trade offers are created equal.  League leading receiver for an oft-injured third down running back?  No way.  But what if that trade offer added something so irresistible – so real – that it demanded a second look?

That's where Pizza Hut comes in. The world's largest pizza company has established a weekly contest to help fantasy owners complete their trades this football season. All fantasy owners have to do is submit their trade offer to [email protected] and briefly explain why they need pizza to help close the deal in accordance with the Official Rules, available at: http://pizza.ht/tradebait. Each week, Pizza Hut will review submitted trade offers and select winners. Winners will be awarded online promo codes to be dangled as trade bait to their pending offers.

"We're inviting fantasy owners from any league in America to email us their trade offer for the opportunity to add the power of pizza to their deal," said Doug Terfehr, PR Director, Pizza Hut. "To be clear though, this isn't an automated program that doles out food to everyone who participates. We will review each and every submission and rule on a case-by-case basis."

Maybe you committed fantasy football faux pas No. 1 and drafted too many players from your hometown team? Or maybe it was an error in judgment when you drafted a back-up quarterback that has the same bye week as your starter. Whatever the reason for commissioning your trade, Pizza Hut is primed to serve as the potential outlet that will help bait and close the deal on your fantasy trade proposal. 

"We want people to be creative in their submissions," added Terfehr.  "If there's something specific on our menu that an owner thinks is appetizing to their trade partner, we want to know.  Maybe someone's old college roommate and owner of that prized QB is a lover of Pizza Hut breadsticks. We want to know and we'll factor that in as part of the trade offer."

The most epic trade and explanation submitted during the contest period, which ends on November 12, will win the grand prize award of gift cards equivalent to one pizza every other week for a year.  

Gift cards may be redeemed for all Pizza Hut menu items, including pizzas, side items, WingStreet wings, Tuscani Pastas and new products.

In addition to the fantasy football trade bait contest, Pizza Hut will celebrate the kickoff of the football season with a special "Touchdown Offer" available on Thursday, Sept. 4 and Friday, Sept. 5, which also happens to be National Cheese Pizza Day.  The "Touchdown Offer" will allow all customers to receive a large cheese pizza for the touchdown-friendly price of just $7 when ordered online at PizzaHut.com using promo code BIGCHEESE.

Football season is the busiest time of the year for Pizza Hut. The average American eats 46 slices of pizza per year with pepperoni being the most popular topping. On any given Sunday, Pizza Hut will be in the homes of 6 million Americans, making it the busiest day of the week for pizza sales.

More information about the brand can be found on the company's Facebook  and Twitter pages.
