Super Bowl Sunday is just days away, and like all big events of the past 10 months, things this year are going to look decidedly different, at least when it comes to watching the game.
A new Oracle survey finds:
- While most people usually go to Super Bowl parties to enjoy the game, twice as many people plan to watch the game alone this year as compared to last year.
- When it comes to parties, 8% plan to attend a virtual Super Bowl party.
- Folks plan to spend between $100 and $500 on Super Bowl Sunday, down 7% from last year.
- 21% of people still plan to dress up in fan gear for the big game while the same amount are just going to watch it in loungewear or pajamas. And 6% of people expect they will just wear underwear or nothing at all.
One thing that won’t change much this Super Bowl Sunday is the eating and drinking.
- 42% of people plan to cheat on their New Year’s resolutions on Super Bowl Sunday.
- 19% plan to drink more than in previous years, with 8% planning to drink a lot more.
- 16% of people say they plan to “eat and drink everything in sight.”
Finally, when it comes to seeing their team win, football fans would sacrifice almost anything. For example:
- 22% would give up drinking for a year.
- 22% would do all the household chores for a year.
- 19% would give up their favorite food for a year.
- 17% would give up a week’s vacation.
ONE MORE THING! 42% of people say they’ve taken off the Monday after Super Bowl Sunday to recover, with men three times more likely to do it than women. For this reason, Mighty Swell Spiked Seltzer has started a Change.org petition to make “Super Monday” a national holiday.Click hereto sign it.
