Interestingly, the American beer brand has made a substantial investment to feature one of the greatest football players of all time in their commercial. As reported by The New York Times, Messi will be paid $14 million, a sum that is double the amount the brand spent on a 30-second commercial during the 2023 Super Bowl, which was $7 million.


Also noteworthy at this prominent American football event is another 30-second commercial estimated to cost between $5 million to $10 million. However, this pales in comparison to Messi’s $14 million deal. Michelob Ultra appears ready to go all in with the 2022 World Cup champion, recognizing Messi’s influence that extends beyond just football to other sports, particularly those popular in the United States.Lionel Messi teases his first Super Bowl commercial with Michelob
