Super Bowl Sunday is one of the most popular days of the year, but everyone does it differently. Some pay a fortune to attend the game. Others watch at home, make prop bets, and debate the best commercials each year. A few more celebrate in a very different way at their local hospital.
For a few doctors and nurses, Super Bowl LIII will just be another day at the office and not a private celebration for the end of the football season. That’s why Pizza Hut — the official pizza sponsor of the NFL — created a fun contest with an amazing prize for those couples expecting a Super Bowl baby.
The contest is simple: If you have the first baby born after kickoff of the Big Game between the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots, you can send a tweet to the pizza chain, and the parents could win free pizza for a year and tickets to Super Bowl LIV next year in Miami Gardens, Florida.
This is not a drill. This an actual thing.
There are rules to follow in order to win the prize, of course. To enter, Pizza Hut explains that the parent with a baby born during the game needs to post a picture of the baby on Twitter, including the exact time of birth, tag @PizzaHut and use the hashtags #PizzaHutSpecialDelivery and #promotion to qualify.
Although the next few weeks, months, or even years won’t be so easy, the contest to win free pizza and next year’s Super Bowl tickets is so simple. You just have to be the first person to share it on social media.
In addition to the Super Bowl Baby contest, Pizza Hut is making free pizza deliveries to local hospitals in the Boston and Los Angeles areas during the game.
“If there’s one thing we’re more passionate about than pizza and football, it’s the family we get to enjoy it with. Family celebrations and Pizza Hut have gone hand in hand for more than 60 years, so in our first year as the Official Pizza Sponsor at Super Bowl LIII, we wanted to show up for our fans who are in the unique position of expanding their family during the biggest NFL game of the year. And as a mother of four, I would’ve jumped at the idea of free, post-delivery pizza at the hospital!”

Back in November, exactly nine months after the Philadelphia Eagles won Super Bowl LII, area hospitals prepared for a wild baby boom. You can likely expect the same come this November in one of those cities, too.
However, Pizza Hut is looking to start one family’s celebration a little early.
