Currently in its second year as title sponsor of the Papa John’s Trophy, the pizza delivery chain is giving EFL football fans the chance to see their team play for free, by giving away hundreds of tickets through the 21/22 competition.

For this season’s competition, Papa John’s is excited to welcome fans into EFL stadiums to watch Papa John’s Trophy matches for the very first time.
