Carolina Panthers announce partnership with Pizza Hut Germany

CHARLOTTE –  The Carolina Panthers announced a multi-year partnership agreement with Pizza Hut Germany, making the pizza retailer the team's first multi-year German partner as part of the NFL's Global Markets Program (GMP). The agreement designates Pizza Hut Germany as the Official Pizza Partner of the Carolina Panthers in Germany.

With over 90 locations throughout Germany, the partnership with Pizza Hut Germany extends the presence of the Panthers and NFL to every major German market, helping introduce the game to new fans across the country.

"Our first official partnership in Germany is a significant milestone in our ongoing efforts to expand our brand globally," said Kristi Coleman, Carolina Panthers President. "We're excited to work alongside Pizza Hut Germany and other regional businesses to deliver a world-class experience to our fans in Munich later this year."

Pizza Hut Germany and the Carolina Panthers will work together to bring exclusive promotions to NFL fans leading up to the 2024 game, including meal promotions and exclusive enter-to-win NFL Germany in-game hospitality offerings.

"We are very excited to be the first international partner of the Carolina Panthers as part of the NFL Global Markets Program. As the Official Pizza Partner in Germany, we will not only support the team and the Panthers German fans leading up to their upcoming game in Germany, but also hope to spread the excitement of American football to future fans. Pizza Hut US already worked with the NFL and their teams in the United States for many years and we can't wait to go international with the Carolina Panthers. We wish all fans a great Super Bowl this weekend and look forward to the 2024 season together with you," says Matthias Kern, President, Pizza Hut Germany.

The partnership will also feature retail campaigns, innovative digital and social media promotions across Panthers Deutschland platforms, and unique co-branded collaborations.
