Do you like free food? Do you like Chipotle? Do you like soccer? Have we got a deal for you!

Starting Friday night, whenever the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team scores goals during the World Cup tournament, you can score some free Chipotle — if you act fast.

Your chance to win comes every time the U.S. team scores a goal that:

  • Puts the team ahead
  • Increases its lead
  • Ties the game

Whenever that happens, a code for a free Chipotle entree will be posted on the soccer team’s Twitter account, which is at The first 2,500 fans to text that code to the number 888222 will win a free entree — a burrito, burrito bowl, quesadilla, salad or tacos.

(If the U.S. team is behind, unfortunately their goals won’t win you any free food.)

When Are the Games?

This offer is good for the U.S. team’s first three games during this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup. Here’s their schedule:

  • Friday at 9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time vs. Vietnam
  • Wednesday, July 26, at 9 p.m. EST vs. Netherlands
  • Tuesday, Aug. 1, at 3 a.m. EST vs. Portugal

With the Portugal game happening in the middle of the night on U.S. time, that may be the easiest time to win free Chipotle — if you’re willing to stay up super late.

Here’s one other thing to know: Each night, the promo ends when all the codes are claimed or when the game is over, whichever happens first.

This isn’t Chipotle’s first sports-themed food giveaway. Last year the burrito chain posted free-food codes on Twitter during the men’s World Cup and for three-pointers made during the NBA Finals.

As part of Chipotle’s “Bowls for Goals” promotion with the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team, two of the team’s stars have their own signature burrito bowls available in the Chipotle app and on for a limited time.

Here they are:

Rose Lavelle Bowl: Chicken, brown rice, black beans, tomato salsa, roasted chili-corn salsa, lettuce, guacamole and a side of chipotle-honey vinaigrette dressing.

Sophia Smith Bowl: Chicken, brown rice, black beans, pinto beans, tomatillo-red chili salsa, roasted chili-corn salsa, sour cream and cheese.
