Football-crazed Americans to eat more than 1.3 billion wings for Super Bowl

Washington, D.C. – The National Chicken Council (NCC) projects that football-crazed (and undoubtedly thirsty) Americans will scarf down 1.38 billion wings on Super Bowl Sunday as the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots battle for the Lombardi Trophy.

That’s a 2% or 27-million wing jump from 2018.

How do 1.38 billion chicken wings measure up?

  • If 1.38 billion wings were laid end to end, they would stretch 28 times from Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
  • 1.38 billion wings weigh 6,600 times more than the combined weight of both the Patriots’ and Rams’ entire rosters.
  • Enough to put 640 wings on every seat in all 31 NFL stadiums
  • Enough to circle the Earth 3 times.
  • If each wing were 1 second, 1.38 billion wings would be 44 years.
  • That’s four wings for every man, woman and child in the US.

As the saying goes, “I’ll just eat one. Said no one ever.”

As Americans unite around their shared love of the chicken wing during Super Bowl LIII, NCC is petitioning President Trump and Congress to declare the Monday after the Super Bowl a federal holiday: “National Chicken Wing Appreciation Day.”  Declare your support for the federal holiday – and love of the wing – by signing the petition here.

“Whether you’re a fan of the left wing or the right wing, there’s no debate – or controversial missed calls – about America’s favorite Super Bowl food,” said NCC spokesperson Tom Super.
