Preview of 2020 SuperBowl Ads

| Comments

SuperBowl remains one of the last annual programming events on TV that can deliver a massive US TV audience. Every year, big brands look to the SuperBowl as the best opportunity to put out their best creative work and/or launch new campaigns.

This year FOX will host the SuperBowl and will collect a large portion of this year’s biggest ad budgets. Initially, FOX sold 77 30 second ad units, but brands are going long with their ads, resulting in fewer spots in the game. So after FOX sold out its initial ad inventory by late November, they managed to find new real estate by creating an additional 2.5-minute ad pod opportunity to rope more brands into the big game. That means this year viewers can expect to see about 50 total commercials in Super Bowl 2020. It has been reported that FOX is selling 30 second ads going as much as $5.6M per ad spot (one 30 second ad).

Here’s a sneak peak of this year’s biggest commercials for the Big Game that will feature the matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Feb. 2.
