NFL Announces Christmas Day Games for 2024 Season

In a bold move, the NFL has decided to play on Christmas Day in 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.

The NBA’s viewership on Christmas Day is declining, which made it clear that the NFL would not give up the opportunity to dominate this holiday viewing day. Despite initial skepticism from some, this move signifies a shift in power dynamics between the two sports leagues.

NFL executive Hans Schroeder initially claimed that the league would not play on Christmas when the holiday falls on a Tuesday or Wednesday. However, with the competitive nature of the sports industry and given that Schroeder may have known that this change was inevitable, it seems he had planned for this outcome all along. The decision to play on Christmas in 2024 indicates that the NFL is determined to claim Christmas Day as its own, leaving the NBA’s ratings in the dust.
