The NFL will play football on Black Friday next year.
Discussion about scheduling a game on the day after Thanksgiving has gone on for some time and the league announced on Tuesday that there will be a game played on November 24, 2023.
The game is expected to kick off at 3 p.m. ET and it will be carried on Amazon Prime Video. The teams taking part will be announced during next year’s schedule announcement.
“Thanksgiving is synonymous with football and we’re excited to give our fans another day of NFL action during this holiday weekend,” NFL Media COO Hans Schroeder sain in a statement. “Amazon is uniquely positioned to partner with us for this game as Black Friday is one of the most important days of the year for their business.”
There is no word in the league’s announcement about plans beyond 2023, but it seems likely that the Black Friday game will become another staple of the annual NFL schedule.
Love it. Bring it to Green Bay!!
Sweet! NFL to watch after cleaning up the house from TDay guests and also putting up decorations for the holidays.
Please move the annual Detroit Thanksgiving dog of a game here permanently!
Good. As long as it’s played here in America and not Britain.
More football is more better!
2:00 on a Friday, some of us have jobs.
This is getting ridiculous. Why not add games on Tuesday and Wednesday and complete the week?
NFL games on Black Friday? You gotta be kidding me! Is nothing sacred anymore? What’s next? Games on Christmas Day?
I generally dislike Thursday games, but Thanksgiving goes well with football. I’m fine with this. The only drawback is that putting it on Amazon makes it harder to flip back and forth to other viewing options.
Nice, gives me something to do while the wife n kid are out spending money
This is great, unless you don’t have Amazon Prime.
