Academy Sports + Outdoors Black Friday 2022 Sale & Ad

Updated on Tuesday September 20, 2022: We’re getting ready for some of the best deals of the year at Academy Sports + Outdoors’ Black Friday 2022 sale… especially with extreme inflation and rising food and housing prices lately, some good bargains couldn’t come at a better time. And while we still don’t have a copy of their ad, we’ve been tracking their BF sales for long enough to know what to expect. Here’s what we’re predicting at Academy Sports + Outdoors’ Black Friday sale this year:

  • Academy Sports’ Black Friday 2022 ad is expected to be leaked some time after the first week of November (probably on or around Tuesday November 8th if it comes at the same time as last year). The ad itself is usually 21 to 28 pages long.
  • The sale is expected to run from Sunday, November 20th (that’s 4 days before Thanksgiving) to Saturday November 26th. Their Cyber Monday sale is expected to begin immediately afterwards on Sunday morning, November 27th.
  • In terms of the deals, you can expect to see 30% to 50% off specials across the store. To get a general idea of the type of things we will see on sale and the discount levels typically offered, simply scroll down the page to check out last year’s Black Friday ad.
  • If shopping in-stores, we expect all locations to once again be closed on Thanksgiving day itself. But to make up for it, doors typically open extra early at 5:00AM on Friday morning and close as late as 11:00PM.

As always, the latest Black Friday news from Academy Sports + Outdoors will be posted as soon as we get it. Be sure to bookmark this page and check back regularly for more updates or join our newsletter to stay informed.

Black Friday 2022 Start & End Dates

Academy Sports + Outdoors always runs plenty of 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 likely kick off the sale on the Sunday before Thanksgiving and run it through Saturday night or while supplies last. Then, historically, they immediately rotate into their Cyber Monday sale early on Sunday morning and run it through Tuesday night. So if the trend continues here in 2022 then this is the sales schedule that you can expect to see:

  • Expected Black Friday sale start date: Sunday November 20, 2022 in stores and at
  • Expected Black Friday sale end date: Saturday November 26, 2022 or while in-stock inventory lasts.
  • Expected Cyber Monday sale dates: Sunday-Tuesday, November 27-29, 2022.

We will be posting Academy’s confirmed Black Friday and Thanksgiving weekend sales schedule for 2022 as soon as we have the dates officially verified.
