The FIFA Women’s World Cup is mere hours away from kicking off, and Pizza Hut is giving Australians free pizza to celebrate.

Yes, you heard that right. So how do you get your hands on free pizza? It’s easy. For every single goal scored by the Matildas at the football tournament this July and August, Pizza Hut will give away 600 pizzas. if any team scores a goal, 200 pizzas will also be given away. That’s a lot of pizza. Each day at 4 pm (AEST), starting July 21, visit this link and enter your name into the jackpot for a chance to win free pizza.

So, how many free pizzas are we talking about here? In the previous tournament held in 2019, international teams scored 138 goals, and Australia scored eight goals. If that exact result was to be repeated, a total of 32,400 free pizzas could be given away.

If you’re an optimist, you could hope for a repeat of the best-ever score in a tournament game, which saw the USA beat Thailand 13-0. That’s 2,600 free pizzas unlocked just in one game. Multiply that by the 64 games being played, and that’s a whopping 171,200 juicy pizzas that could be given away —that’s almost 2 million dollars worth of pizza, folks.

If you want to show your love for the sport and Pizza Hut, you can grab an eye-catching pizza-patterned jersey by heading to the Pizza Hut Facebook page and answering the question: “How many total goals will Australia score in their first two tournament games?”

Be it a beautifully curled shot into the top corner or a powerful header crashing into the back of the net, Pizza For Goals will be cause for celebration both on and off the pitch.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.
