Have you ever gone to a Super Bowl? I haven’t but would love to have a Super Bowl Experience.
Here’s a little history of the Super Bowl. Just in case you don’t know what the Super Bowl is, it’s an Annual Championship Game of the National Football League (NFL). The Super Bowl is a rivalry between the AFC (American Football Conference) and NFC (National Football Conference).
Super Bowl I was played on January 15, 1967, following the 1966 regular football season. It was played at Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles the battle was between (NFC) Champion Green Bay Packers and (AFC) Champion Kansas City Chiefs. The Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs by 35-10 to win the first-ever Super Bowl.
As of 2017, the NFC has won 26 Super Bowls vs the AFC winning 25. There are 16 AFC teams and 16 NFC teams, out of the 16 teams only 10 from each conference have won the Super Bowl. There are 6 teams from each conference that have never won as of 2017.
The Super Bowl is scheduled at the same time each year the last Sunday of January or first Sunday in February. It’s an exciting time of year for all sports fans, there is a lot of screaming and yelling at the team you are cheering for. Friends get together and there are food and drinks including lots of alcohol, it’s a big party time.
The Super Bowl is also known as “The Big Game” which is played at different stadiums each year. The location of the Super Bowl is chosen three to five years in advance by the NFL. A city has to place bids with the NFL in order to be considered to host the Super Bowl. Certain requirements must be meant before a city even be considered.
Here are a few requirements:
- Stadium must have a minimum of 70,000 seats
- A minimum of 35,000 parking spaces must be within one mile of the stadium
- Stadiums, where the temperature could be below 50 degrees, must either have a roof or a waiver could be given by the NFL
- There must be hotel rooms equaling 35% of the stadiums’ capacity within one hour’s drive of the stadium
- A practice space must be available for both teams within a 20-minute drive from the teams’ hotel
