The History of Super Bowl

The Super Bowl was simply a AFL-NFL world championship game in the sixties. It was played where only half the stadium was full. There were two different brands of the game that were contradictory and were designed by the NFL and AFL respectively. There was a clear agreement between the owners of the two leagues, to form a new and united organization, the modern NFL. The two had to separately oblige TV contracts and that kept the full integration pending till 1970. There was a single separate game played at end of season, that was used to name the final winning team as the champion. “Super Sunday” became a trademark name due to the craze that Super Bowl induced in the people. This game has created a special place for itself in the US list of national holidays, the fourth of July. The game is regularly scheduled every year and is watched by almost everyone in the US.
