Considered an important shared cultural event for those that follow American football, The Super Bowl is one of the most well known event in any sporting calendar! Taking place each year to determine the championship team of the National Football League (NFL), the Super Bowl is broadcast in more than 170 countries with viewers tuning in to see celebrity appearances, elaborate halftime shows, and of course some incredible sportsmanship.
While some may consider the Super Bowl just a game, over the past 50 years it has become a unique and iconic symbol of American culture. Forming in the 1960s after a group of businessmen who wanted to own football franchises, but had been denied by the NFL, launched an alternative league known as the American Football League (AFL). While the NFL and AFL were initially rivals, in 1966 the owners negotiated an agreement to merge these two leagues into what we now know as the Super Bowl with the first Super Bowl taking place in 1966 and was called the “AFL-NFL Championship Game”.
Whether you’re a longtime fan of the game, using the event as an opportunity to spend time with loved ones, or tuning in to watch for the first time, the Super Bowl is something that you won’t want to miss!
