The brewer has reportedly purchased three minutes of advertising space during Super Bowl 50 at the cost of around US$5 million per 30-second slot.

It is estimated that over 100 million viewers around the globe will be watching the game on 7 February and will get to see adverts for the company’s Budweiser, Bud Light, Michelob and Shock Top brands.

Anheuser-Busch and the NFL have also extended their partnership to make Bud Light the official beer of the National Football League until 2022, in a deal valued at US$1.4 billion. The deal was due to expire after Super Bowl LI in 2017.

To celebrate the brewer’s unbroken sponsorship of the Super Bowl since 1975, Anheuser-Busch has announced a number of special edition packaging initiatives including Super Bowl 50 Bud Light bottles and cans featuring past Super Bowl winners.
