Academy Sports Black Friday 2020 Ad & Sale – What to Expect

Updated on Saturday October 17, 2020: It’s still too early for us to know what’s coming at Academy Sports’ Black Friday sale this year but you can scroll down the page to see the details from last year to get an idea of what’s likely to come. More often than not, the sales are usually pretty similar from year to year.

We’ll be posting a copy of their ad and all the important details for 2020 once we know more. Be sure to check back again soon for the latest updates or simply join our newsletter and we’ll let you know the moment news is announced.

Expected 2020 Start & End Dates

Academy Sports + Outdoors runs deals all throughout the holiday season… it seems like they just go from one sale to another, to another, to another. But in terms of “Black Friday” they usually kick off the sale with a handful of deals starting on the weekend before Thanksgiving. About two days later the entire sale begins and typically runs through Saturday night or while supplies last. Then historically, they immediately rotate to their Cyber Monday sale on Sunday morning and run it through Tuesday night of the following week.

  • Expected early Black Friday deals: Sunday-Monday, November 22-23, 2020.
  • Expected main sale start date: Tuesday November 24, 2020.
  • Expected main sale end date: Saturday November 28, 2020.
  • Expected Cyber Monday sale: Sunday-Tuesday, November 29-December 1, 2020.

How will the current COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic affect Academy Sports + Outdoors’ Black Friday sale and scheduling this year? In terms of scheduling, we’re not expecting any major changes in the usual offer duration. But what’s likely changing is that you’ll probably see a greater emphasis to shop online this year with expanded free shipping or the option of free local in-store pickup of your purchases. For those of you still planning on visiting nearest Academy Sports retail store then expect shortened hours of operation, reduced maximum capacity limits, and social distancing/sanitary policies implemented to keep customers safe. As always, we’ll bring you the latest on all of these policies and confirmed Black Friday scheduling as soon as we learn more.
