The CFL has shut down a Pizza Pizza promotion across Hamilton, Ontario where the chain was offering a $29.99 pizza combo deal that included 2 free tickets to the Grey Cup game in Toronto on Sunday, November 27, 2016.
“Although it may have been made with good intentions, it didn’t have proper authorization. Once it was brought to our attention we had the promotion pulled immediately,” CFL spokesman Paulo Senra said on his Twitter account.

The walk-in only special includes a large three-topping pizza, ten chicken wings, four cans of pop, dipping sauces, and two free Grey Cup tickets for just $29.99.
The chain is offering 15 pairs of tickets at each location in the Hamilton area – while supplies last.
What exactly does this say about the Grey Cup – and the state of professional football in Canada?
