The NFL is famous for how much it costs to air a commercial during the Super Bowl every February, but that doesn’t mean it is cheap to buy airtime during regular season games.
This season, the cost of a 30-second commercial will range from $300,000 to $700,000, depending on which time slot is being bought into, according to John Ourand of Sports Business Daily (via SI.com). In February, it cost advertisers $5 million for a 30-second commercial during the Super Bowl.
The most expensive ad space is for Sunday Night Football ($700,000) and for Sunday late-afternoon (4:25 pm ET kickoffs) NFC games on Fox (“around $700,000”). The cheapest games are Sunday early-afternoon games (1:00 pm ET kickoffs) on CBS and Fox, starting at $300,000 per 30 seconds.
