NFL plans to have over $25 Billion per year in revenue by 2027


Recommended Posts

It has been in motion for quite sometime and it appears they will not only meet their goal but likely surpass it thanks to a new Netflix deal being worked on along with some other things in the pipeline.

 

Kinda crazy how the NFL basically prints money.

And little ol Buffalo is part of the greatest sports league of em all. That's why you build an overpriced stadium with public money. To remain in that exclusive club. I don't know what the state and county get for their $850MM but there must be something coming back over the next 25 years.

 

They probably could have made something over the last 50 if they bothered to develop businesses around the stadium. It blows my mind that all that ever existed was a Tim Hortons, a 7-11, and a couple bars.

Well like $450 million is coming directly from the Seneca Niagara Casinos that the state finally collected on after all those years.

That nothing has changed business wise, even minutely, around the stadium seems an absurd anomaly. 
 

ECC has recently discussed moving their South campus to the North campus due to shrinking enrollment. 
 

Nothing but conjecture, but were that to happen, would the land be made available? Being right next to the stadium, it would seem ideal to create spin off businesses. Though more parking might be the thinking. 

 

And, that there’s been zero increases of business around the stadium since it opened, maybe it’s simply just not worthwhile, as unlikely as that might seem.

Easier said than done.  You need business wanting to come there for Eerie county to think about building one.   The same goes for Niagara Falls.   The ability to continue to increase the population is what will bring business into town.  That hasn't happened in the Greater Niagara Region

I thought the NFL was already pulling in 25 billion a year now. Now that they are growing the game by promoting it in other countries, I would guess the number will go well north of 25 billion.

And who exactly was to do this development? The State? I’m guessing that the private development market determined that constructing stores and restaurants across the street from a specialized facility in the middle of nowhere that’s only open 10 days a year isn’t a very good investment opportunity. The stadium has been there for half a century. I’m guessing that’s as close to consensus as you’re gonna get.

I just hope while in the process they don't ruin the game that we all have come to love for the reasons we love it . The game is so popular because we can't get enough of it & if they over saturate the public with it like having a european division with say adding another 6 or 8 teams plus adding more games it won't be the same .

 

I do not & will not watch the games over seas, call me what you will but this is "America's game" leave it here and all those other places can have their brand of football .

 

I want our fans to have our football in our stadiums, they don't have the Manchester united come here to play & personally if they did i would not care !! 

 

So i hope they don't try to reinvent the wheel by letting greed be the motivating factor ... But in todays world it wouldn't surprise me if that's what happens !

Went to see the Bills in Green Bay in 2010 and they had already made that stadium and its adjoining museum a 365/24/7 destination.  I understand they've added more amenities since to enhance the "Green Bay experience."  Would something like that work in Buffalo?  Hard to tell because Green Bay's history is so rich and deep.  Sure, we've been to Super Bowls, but Buffalo is not the national brand Green Bay is.  Agree though, odd that more hasn't sprouted up around the stadium in recent years.

Businesses have been coming here...there is a reason why Buffalo is the hottest housing market of 2024 according to Zillow...and it's not because jobs are leaving anymore. My house value is up close to 40K since the start of this year alone of based on comparable home sales nearby.

 

The gloom and doom era is over...the future is increasingly bright for WNY. Funnily enough, the only people who can't see it are the ones living here or the ones from here that moved away.

 

 

Zillow’s list of the hottest markets in 2024 is based on an analysis of forecast home value growth, recent housing market velocity and projected changes in the labor market, home construction activity and number of homeowner households. [1]

 

Vaulting Buffalo to the top of the list are recent increases in the number of jobs created compared to the number of new homes construction projects being approved, as well as expectations for steady home values.

The NFL being the only thing Americans tune into on live television at a rate that they used to in the 90's/00's is allowing them to print money on massive TV deals. 

 

The NFL just in "Media Rights" deals will be raking in 15 billion a year by 2027. 

 

  1. 10 billion in domestic US TV deals, spread out over five deals between Amazon, Fox, CBS, NBC, and ESPN/ABC. 
  2. 2 billion in for NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube TV.
  3. 1 billion in International TV rights 
  4. 2 billion in other streaming rights (I couldn't find a specific breakout but I think this includes things like the Netflix deal and other smaller deals for things like NFL Highlights) 

Then of course there is 10 billion spread out from things like ticket sales (3 billion), sponsorships (2 billion), merchandising (2 billion), and other revenue sources (3 billion). 

 

The NFL has an insane license to print money and the fact that streamers like Netflix are interested in the property will only allow them to increase their media rights revenue once the current deals which are locked in until 2033 as having another bidder is only good for them.

A lot of people here struggle with this.  If there was any possibility for someone to make money around a stadium, it would exist in OP already.  A new stadium at the same site won't change the fact that no one wants to go there except for a game.

If there really was an opportunity it probably would have been done.  There are 10 games a year there that bring in crowds.  What is going to bring in people for the other 355 days?    A mall?

Malls are becoming a thing of the past as well. Many people shop now by going to the store's website. Fill their "cart", proceed to checkout with their address, credit information and wait for the package to arrive on their doorstep a week or so later.

I know, that is my point....what is the attraction going to be?
