What are the hours and when should I call?

ESPN.com operates the call center for this 888-549-3776 phone number 24 hours, 7 days. The short answer is that you should call on a Thursday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 476 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this ESPN.com phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like ESPN.com staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call ESPN.com is Sunday. The most busy day to call is Monday, which averages 83% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 476 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

The shortest wait on hold

We measured the shortest hold times to be on Thursday. The longest wait in the queue on average occurs on Sunday, which is 590% longer than the minimum. As you can see, there is more fluctuation in hold time over the course of the week than there is in call volume.

The best time to call ESPN.com

In summation, the best day to call ESPN.com is Thursday. It isn't the least busy day, but the fact that hold times are shortest combined with it being on the busy side tells us that ESPN.com staffs up on Thursday to handle the higher call volume, and that makes it the best time to call.

As a last, sometimes only, resort- ESPN.com customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
