The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL). As opposed to other major U.S. sports leagues, the NFL championship is decided in a single game rather than a best-of-seven series.
The first Super Bowl took place in 1967. In its 51 iterations since then, 19 different teams won the Super Bowl at least once, while 12 franchises took the title home multiple times.
The winner takes it all, and since the Super Bowl is played there are several teams which could take the trophy home more than once. Pittsburgh Steelers are leading the pack with winning the title 6 times, followed by the New England Patriots, San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys who made it 5 times.

The Super Bowl LII had amazing 111.3 million viewers, this is two times more than the next famous sports event World Series (Game 7) of baseball which could pull 31 million in front of the US TV screens. Basketball, Ice-hockey or Tennis are sports which land all together so many viewers as the World Series (Game 7).
Considering its unparalleled reach, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the Super Bowl Is a feast for advertisers. Year after year, some of the biggest brands in the world invest millions of dollars to show off their products during the Super Bowl broadcast.
At $5.05 million per 30-second spot, air time during the Super Bowl is by far the most expensive on television.
U.S. TV advertising revenue and average price for a 30-second spot could nearly double over the span of 10 years from $ 2.7 million to $ 5.05 million. Ad revenue climbed from $ 261 million back in the year 2008 to $ 534 million in the year 2017.
Interestingly, Americans aren’t turned off by the slew of advertising they are exposed to during the Super Bowl broadcast.
Quite the opposite in fact: the commercials produced for the special occasion are one of the main reasons for Americans to love the Super Bowl.
