The History of the Super Bowl

The history of the Super Bowl starts with two things: the merging of the American Football League with National Football
League, and a bouncy rubber ball.

The NFL - AFL World Championship Game was created as a piece of the merger agreement between the NFL and the AFL in
1966.

During the negotiations between the NFL and the AFL, Kansas City Chief owner, Lamar Hunt, thought of the name "Super
Bowl" for the Championship game, after observing his daughter playing with her toy Super Ball. Hunt only meant the name to
be a stop-gap until the powers that be could think of something better. Not having thought of one, the game was named "The
NFL-AFL World Championship Game".

The first Championship took place in 1967. With the official title being quite a mouth full, the fans as well as the media took to
the short, unofficial name, Super Bowl. In 1969, the name, "Super Bowl" became official.

The Green Bay Packers won the first two Super Bowls convincingly, causing many people to question if the AFL teams could
compete. The very next year, the New York Jets upset the Baltimore Colts for the AFL's first Super Bowl Title. The Chiefs won
the 4th Super Bowl, evening the record at 2-2.

In 1970, the NFL and AFL merged into one combined league with two conferences, which resembles today's National Football
League. Three NFL Teams joined the 10 AFL teams forming the AFC (American Football Conference). The remaining 13
teams from the old NFL formed the NFC (National Football Conference).

Since the construction of the combined league, former AFL teams have won 10 Super Bowls while original NFL teams have
taken 23. Two Super Bowls have been won by teams created after the merger.

The Winner of each Super Bowl receives the Vince Lombardi Trophy, named after Vince Lombardi, the great coach for the
Green Bay Packers who led his team to victory in each of the first two Super Bowls. Following his death, the trophy was
named prior to Super Bowl V in his honor.
