Just one day after the pizza franchise Papa John’s announced it is ending the endorsement deal with the NFL, Pizza Hut came in and became the league’s new official pizza sponsor.
Papa John’s, who was supposed to have a deal with the NFL until 2020, will end its deal with the NFL next season. This change took place only two months after Papa John’s founder and CEO, John Schnatter, criticized the players for protesting and stepped down from his position.
Pizza Hut's deal will exceed Papa John's original contract and will not end until 2021, reported Bloomberg.
