The Super Bowl is an annual event that determines the National Football League’s champion for each given season. Before the term “Super Bowl” was created, the American Football League and the National Football League would battle it out for supremacy in a game previously known as the AFL-NFL World Championship. The term “Super Bowl” was coined as part of the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. After the merger was complete, each league was separated into different conferences. The winners of the AFC (formally known as the AFL) and the NFC (formally the NFL) meet up on Super Bowl Sunday to determine the NFL Champion for each season.
