History of the Super Bowl
The Super Bowl is the big final of the American football league NFL (National Football League). Millions of viewers follow it every year all around the world which makes it one of the biggest and most important single sports events.
The first Super Bowl
On January the 15th, 1967, the Green Bay Packers smashed the Kansas City Chiefs with 35-10 in the first-ever AFL-NFL World Championship (later known as the Super Bowl I) at the Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles. More than 60 million people were watching the event live on television.
The team that wins the Super Bowl not only receives the famous “Vince Lombardi” Trophy, but also a specially made championship ring for at least 150 members of the respective franchise. If a team wants more than those 150 rings they have to pay to every additional ring themselves.
With six Super Bowl wins each, the New England Patriots and Pittsburg Steelers are the record holders. The Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers were successful five times each, the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl four times.
With six titles, Tom Brady is the most successful player in the Super Bowl era and has now the chance to write history again by adding another title to his career.
The famous Super Bowl halftime show
The Super Bowl halftime show is part of a whole series of activities on Super Bowl Sunday as part of the game which is of course the highlight. Each year there will be a special guest performing. For the musical contribution in the half-time of the Super Bowl the half-time break is even extended. Usually this is only 12 minutes long. For the Super Bowl the half-time break will be extended to 30 minutes.
Due to the popularity of the Super Bowl and the halftime show merchants have to pay a lot for having their commercials showing there. In 2020, the average cost of a 30-second commercial at the Super Bowl finals on U.S. television was around 5.2 million USD.
Road to Super Bowl LV
The NFL is divided into two so-called Conferences: The American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC). Both consist of 16 teams each, of which seven teams qualify for the play-offs in the 16-game regular season. It will be the first year that there are seven play-off teams at a time, compared to only six before.
There are three rounds in the play-offs, which the NFC and AFC play separately. The strongest team in each conference from the regular season (by number of wins and defeats) has a bye in the first play-off round. Second best plays against seventh best and so on. There is only one knockout game at a time. The third round is the so-called Conference Championship Game: The winner from NFC and AFC is the winner of the respective conference and then represents it in the Super Bowl.
Super Bowl 2021 – Teams & Quarterbacks
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the first team in NFL history to play a Super Bowl at home. However, in the fight against the Kansas City Chiefs, the team around head coach Bruce Arians has to do without a few things.
In the end zone of the Raymond James Stadium, for example, there is a huge pirate ship that usually fires numerous cannon strokes when the Bucs make a touchdown. But in the Super Bowl, they must remain silent. Of course there will also be a limitation of visitors who can follow the game at the stadion due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time around 22.000 people will be allowed to visit the game which is around one third less than the maximum capacity.
Duel of the Quarterback generations
It will also be the duel of the quarterback generations. On the one hand there is the league’s new superstar Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes is 25 years old and the current champion with a contract that brings him 500 million USD.
On the other side you can find the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) Tom Brady. With 43 years old he is basically heading towards the end of his career. However, he already made history as a six-time Super Bowl champion who is dominating the NFL for over 20 years, with ten finals, being a Super Bowl MVP 4 times and called up to the Pro Bowl 14 times.
This will be for sure a really exciting game followed by millions people again.
