Swagbucks Super Bowl Survey: Football Fans Will Drink More Soda Than Beer This Year

Press Release - January 29th, 2019

New Survey Also Revealed That Men Focus on the Game, Women Prefer the Commercials

LOS ANGELES — January 29, 2019 — The Super Bowl is fast approaching, and more than three-quarters of American adults plan to watch the big game. While cold brewskies and football are a classic combo, more Americans will be opting for soft drinks than beer this year.

That’s according to a survey by Swagbucks, a rewards- and loyalty-program company operated by Prodege, LLC, that examined Americans’ plans for the Super Bowl this year. The national survey of 1,000 U.S. adults was conducted online by Prodege in January 2019.

The King of ... Soft Drinks

When it comes to what they’ll be drinking, many Super Bowl fans will be opting for six packs — of soft drinks. Almost a third (32 percent) of football fans will opt for soda this year; 29 percent will be drinking beer.

Meanwhile, the majority of Super Bowl fans are also foregoing parties. While 9 percent plan to host and 21 percent plan to attend a party, the rest (65 percent) plan to stay home to watch the game by themselves or with family.

For those planning to attend a Super Bowl party, most will spend their time watching the game (45 percent), followed by:

  • Socializing — 25 percent
  • Eating snacks and/or drinking — 15 percent
  • Tuning in for the commercials — 10 percent
  • Watching the halftime show — 6 percent

The Youngin’ or the GOAT?

What’s the big attraction? More than half (57 percent) of American men say their favorite part is the game action, while more women (41 percent) report they enjoy the commercials more than anything else.

The survey also revealed that, when it comes to favored teams, Americans are almost twice as likely to root for Jared Goff and the Los Angeles Rams (50 percent) than Tom Brady and the New England Patriots (27 percent).

“Whether you are rooting for young Jared Goff and the LA Rams or veteran Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, the Super Bowl is an exciting event and an occasion for people to come together to watch the culmination of another exciting football season,” said Chuck Davis, CEO and chairman of Prodege, LLC. “Swagbucks is excited to help Americans save money on a new big-screen TV, team gear, party supplies, snacks and whatever else will contribute to the best possible Super Bowl viewing experience.”

Swagbucks can help Americans plan for the Super Bowl by offering deals and cash back on team gear, party supplies and at local restaurants to watch the game. Shoppers can also earn Swagbucks on all their purchases from a wide selection of popular retailers through the Swagbucks site or by downloading the SwagButton.
