NFL Boldly Claims Christmas Day as Its Own, Dominates Holiday Viewership

NFL Announces Christmas Day Games for 2024 Season

The NFL has made a bold move to play on Christmas 2024, despite it falling on a Wednesday. This decision comes after a significant increase in viewership for the NFL’s Christmas tripleheader from 2022 to 2023, reaching 28.7 million viewers. It was clear that the NFL would not give up the opportunity to dominate this holiday viewing day.

When NFL executive Hans Schroeder initially claimed that the league would not play on Christmas when the holiday falls on a Tuesday or Wednesday, many were skeptical. While that may have been the plan at the time, it was inevitable that the plan would change. It seems Schroeder may have also known that this change would come, given the competitive nature of the sports industry.

The decision to play on Christmas in 2024 signifies a shift in the power dynamics between the NFL and the NBA on this holiday. This move indicates that the NFL is determined to claim Christmas Day as its own, leaving the NBA’s ratings in the dust. The NBA’s decline in viewership on Christmas Day is evident, and it seems that this trend will continue in the years to come. The NFL’s dominance on Christmas is clear, and it will continue to be a force to be reckoned with in future holidays.
