In 2023, Amazon will broadcast the first-ever “Black Friday” game
The NFL made Amazon its exclusive Thursday Night Football game partner in a long-term media deal last year.
New York: The National Football League (NFL) announced that the first “Black Friday” game will stream on Amazon Prime Video next year, according to the relationship between the league and the streaming giant.
The NFL already has a stifling grip on Thanksgiving broadcasts, with the annual lineup for Thursday games as popular as turkeys on the table in US homes for the annual American holiday.
Now he’s defending his claim over the annual, casual “Black Friday” shopping promotion when bargain hunters hunt for holiday deals in supermarkets and online.
The move comes after the NFL made Amazon its exclusive Thursday Night Football game partner in a long-running media deal last year.
“Thanksgiving is synonymous with football and we’re excited to give our fans another day of NFL games this weekend,” NFL chief operating officer Hans Schroeder said in a statement.
“Amazon is in a unique position to partner with us on this game as Black Friday is one of the biggest days of the year for their business.”
The game will air on November 24, 2023, at 3 p.m. Eastern time (1900 GMT).
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told reporters that the league had not committed to continuing to broadcast beyond 2023, but hinted that there could be more “Black Friday” games in the future.
“We’ll announce plans as we go,” he said. “We certainly don’t do things normally for a year.”
NFL owners gathered in New York on Monday for their quarterly meeting, where player health and safety are expected to be among a variety of topics discussed.
