Super Bowl Logo – Super Bowl (in some countries, Super Bowl ) is the final match of the National Football League ( NFL), the world championship professional football in the United States , which pits the champions of the National Conference (NFC ) and the American Conference (AFC). The game takes place the first Sunday of February and is named after Lamar Hunt , former owner of Kansas City Chiefs , who named it after watching his son play with a ball bouncing.
The first meeting of the Super Bowl was played on January 15 of 1967 as part of an agreement between the National Football League championship and the other existing at that time, the American Football League (AFL), so that the winners of each competition will play a party to decide the champion of the United States.
