Super Bowl Sunday in February is probably the biggest sports event in United States. While people are expected to gather around sports bar drinking beers or stay at home eating pizza and BBQ, some companies are also expected to get revenue boost during this time.
First of all, when you and your buddies are drinking Bud Light, the official NFL beer sponsor, you are helping its parent company Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD). For those who don't want to get drunk, their options include NFL soft drink sponsor PepsiCo (PEP) or more popular Coca-Cola (KO). PepsiCo (PEP) alsos owns other official NFL food and beverage sponsors including Gatorade, Frito-Lay, and Quaker Oats.
While drinking Bud Light or Pepsi, a slice of Pepperoni or Cheese pizza should definitely increase your appetite. And if you are NFL fans, very likly you'll order the Pizaa take-out from Papa John's (PZZA), the offical NFL pizza sponsor. If you are not a pizza fan, you may very likly get chicken nuggets and hamburgers from McDonald's(MCD), the offical NFL restaurant.
Beside food, you also need to tune-in to official NFL TV Network to watch the final showdown on Super Bowl Sunday. This year's official NFL Super Bowl broadcaster goes to Fox Broadcasting Company(FOX/FOXA).Other major NFL sponsor publicly traded are as follows
