As part of the merger agreement between the National Football League and its rival, the American Football League, it was agreed that the champions of each league would play a season-ending contest to be known as the AFL-NFL World Championship Game. Lamar Hunt, owner of the Kansas City Chiefs and one of the architects of the AFL, didn’t really like his name for the game, but the rest of America did--the Super Bowl.
The Super Bowl, to be played this year on Feb. 3 at the New Orleans Superdome, is now the most watched American sporting event with “Super Bowl Sunday” becoming a de facto American holiday. Only on Thanksgiving is more food consumed by American households.

The National Football Conference holds a slight edge over the American Football Conference winning the Super Bowl 25 times compared to 21.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, with six Super Bowl wins, have won the most for the AFC as well as the most by any NFL team.
