Confirmed 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 will kick off the sale a few days before Thanksgiving and run it 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.

  • Confirmed Black Friday start date: Sunday November 22, 2020 in stores and at
  • Confirmed Black Friday end date: Saturday November 28, 2020.
  • Expected Cyber Monday sale: Sunday-Tuesday, November 29-December 1, 2020.

How will the current COVID-19 pandemic affect Academy Sports + Outdoors’ Black Friday sale this year? In terms of scheduling, it’s a little bit longer than normal (starting two days sooner than last year). What’s also changing is that free local in-store pickup of your purchases is offered and encouraged to help fight the spread coronavirus. 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.
