Super bowl history
APFA (American Professional Football Association) established The National Football League (NFL) in 1920. At that time there were only 10 teams from four different states but now 32 teams compete with each other to become the winner. Nowadays NFL is one of the four major North American professional sports leagues and the wealthiest professional sports league by revenue. You cannot imagine how much people love this game if you did not see any match live or on TV.
Outside America, people call it Rugby or American football. Normally it is a 17-week regular-season start from early September to late December. Each team plays 16 games and only seven teams and three wild card teams advance to the playoffs and then a single-elimination tournament held usually on the first Sunday in February between the champions of the NFC & AFC.
Since 2004 there is an Annual championship game named Super Bowl. This event was created as a part of the 1966 merger agreement between the NFL & AFL. On January 15, 1967, the first game was played between AFL & NFL champions. But after some years the NFL restricts the use of the Super Bowl trademark.
Two teams have the most Super Bowl championship titles and they are the New England Patriots & Pittsburgh Steelers. They won six times each but the New England Patriots have the most Super Bowl appearances (11 times).
Super Bowl is a big day for Americans and statistics say it is the second-largest food consumption day (Thanksgiving day is in the first position). After UEFA Champions League the Super Bowl is the most-watched annual sporting event in the world. Super Bowl is the seven most-watched broadcasts in American television history. In 2015 114.4 million people watched the Super Bowl on TV. The Super Bowl is the most expensive commercial airtime.
