Surprise: NFL Games Scheduled for Christmas Day in 2024

In 2024, the NFL will be playing on Christmas, despite the holiday falling on a Wednesday. This decision comes after multiple reports that viewership for the league’s Christmas tripleheader increased by nearly 30% from 2022 to 2023, reaching 28.7 million viewers. Meanwhile, NBA viewership on the same day has been declining.

NFL executive Hans Schroeder had initially stated that the league wouldn’t play on Christmas when it falls on a Tuesday or Wednesday, but this plan did change. It seems that the NFL saw an opportunity to expand its presence on the holiday and potentially take over a slot traditionally held by the NBA. The league’s decision signals a shift in holiday sports programming, with football aiming to become a staple of Christmas entertainment.
