NFL Breaks Christmas Tradition to Boost Revenue: Christmas Day Doubleheader on Wednesday, December 25, 2024

Wednesday football will not become a regular occurrence, says Roger Goodell

The NFL has announced that it will break its previous rule of not playing games on Christmas when it falls on a Tuesday or Wednesday. Commissioner Roger Goodell revealed that the league will play a doubleheader on Wednesday, December 25, 2024, but stated that this will only happen if Christmas falls on that day. Money plays a significant role in the NFL’s scheduling decisions and the league is always looking for ways to increase revenue. Despite concerns about player safety in Thursday night games, the NFL has shown its willingness to adapt to new opportunities that can generate more income. Last year, the NFL changed its policy on Sunday-Thursday turnarounds, allowing teams to play with only three full days between games. This change opened up new possibilities for scheduling games on different days of the week. The league’s flexibility in scheduling games demonstrates its commitment to innovation and creativity in pursuit of financial gain. Ultimately, the desire for increased revenue continues to drive the NFL’s scheduling strategies.
