Origin:
For four decades once its 1920 beginning, the NFL with success fended off many rival leagues. However, in 1960, it encountered its most serious competition once the football League (AFL) was fashioned. The AFL vied heavily with the NFL for each players and fans, however by the center of the last decade the strain of competition diode to serious merger talks between the 2 leagues. before the 1966 season, the NFL and AFL reached a contract that was to require impact for the 1970 season. As a part of the merger, the champions of the 2 leagues united to satisfy during a world championship game for skilled football till the merger was established. A bowl game may be a post-season faculty contact sport. the initial "bowl game" was the Rose Bowl Game in Pasadena, California, that was 1st vie in 1902 because the "Tournament East-West soccer game" as a part of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses and emotional to the new Rose Bowl structure in 1923. The structure got its name from the very fact that the sport vie there was a part of the Tournament of Roses which it absolutely was formed sort of a bowl, very like the Yale Bowl in New Haven, Connecticut; the Tournament of Roses contact sport itself eventually came to be called the Rose Bowl Game. Exploiting the Rose Bowl Game's quality, post-season faculty soccer contests were created for Miami (the Orange Bowl), city (the Sugar Bowl), and El Paso, TX (the Sun Bowl) in 1935, and for urban center (the Cotton Bowl) in 1937. By the time the primary Super Bowl was vie, the term "bowl" for any major football game was well established.
Lamar Hunt, owner of the AFL's Kansas town Chiefs, 1st used the term "Super Bowl"[10] to consult with the NFL-AFL championship game within the merger conferences. Hunt later aforesaid the name was probably in his head as a result of his youngsters had been wiggling with a brilliant Ball toy;[11] a vintage example of the ball is on show at the professional soccer Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. during a Gregorian calendar month twenty five, 1966, letter to NFL commissioner Pete Hibiscus sabdariffa, Hunt wrote, "I have kiddingly known as it the 'Super Bowl,' that clearly are often improved upon." The leagues' house owners selected the name "AFL–NFL Championship Game", however in Gregorian calendar month 1966 the Kansas town Star quoted Hunt in discussing "the Super Bowl — that is my term for the championship game between the 2 leagues", and also the media like a shot began exploitation the term.[14] though the league declared in 1967 that "not many folks like it", posing for suggestions and considering alternatives like "Merger Bowl" and "The Game", the Associated Press reported  that "Super Bowl" "grew and grew and grew-until it reached the purpose that there was Super Week, Super Sunday, Super groups, Super Players, ad infinitum". "Super Bowl" became official starting with the third annual game. Roman numerals were 1st appendant for the fifth edition, in January 1971.

After the NFL's urban center Packers won the primary 2 Super Bowls, some team house owners feared for the long run of the merger. At the time, several doubted the aggressiveness of AFL groups compared with their NFL counterparts, tho' that perception modified once the AFL's big apple Jets defeated the NFL's metropolis Colts in Super Bowl III in Miami. One year later, the AFL's Kansas town Chiefs defeated the NFL's American state Vikings 23–7 in Super Bowl IV in city, that was the ultimate AFL-NFL World Championship Game vie before the merger. starting with the 1970 season, the NFL realigned into 2 conferences; the previous AFL groups and 3 NFL groups (the Colts, metropolis Steelers, and Cleveland Browns) would represent the football Conference (AFC), whereas the remaining NFL clubs would type the National soccer Conference (NFC). The champions of the 2 conferences would play one another within the Super Bowl.

The date of the Super Bowl will therefore be determined from the date of the preceding Labor Day. for instance, Labor Day in 2015 occurred on September seven; thus consequent Super Bowl was regular specifically 5 months anon Feb 7, 2016. Originally, the sport transpire in early to period. For Super Bowl I there was just one spherical of playoffs: the pre-merger NFL and AFL Championship Games. The addition of 2 contest rounds (first in 1967 then in 1978), a rise in regular season games from fourteen to sixteen (1978), and also the institution of 1 bye-week per team (1990) have caused the Super Bowl to be vie later. partly compensative these season-lengthening effects, coinciding with the addition of 2 regular season games in 1978, the season was started earlier. before 1978 the season started as late as September twenty one. Now, since Labor Day is often the primary Monday of September, September thirteen is that the latest potential date for the primary full Sunday set of games (Since 2002, the regular season has started with the Kickoff Game on the weekday once Labor Day).
