Super Bowl History
The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL), the highest level of professional American football in the United States, culminating a season that begins in the late summer of the previous calendar year.
The Super Bowl uses Roman numerals to identify each game, rather than the year in which it is held.
The game was created as part of a merger agreement between the NFL and its then-rival league, the American Football League (AFL). It was agreed that the two leagues’ champion teams would play in the AFL–NFL World Championship Game until the merger was to officially begin in 1970. After the merger, each league was redesignated as a “conference”, and the game was then played between the conference champions. Currently, the National Football Conference (NFC) leads the league with 26 wins to 22 wins for the American Football Conference (AFC).
The generic Super Bowl logo used since Super Bowl XLV, showcasing the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Each year’s logo has the host stadium as a backdrop and the Roman numeral of the game below the phrase “Super Bowl”.
