The Super Bowl is a championship of the National Football League. This has been the leading professional American football association, since the year 1967. The award is usually held on the first Sunday of February of the solar calendar, called the Super Cup Sunday.
The winning team received the Vince Lombardi Trophy, named after the coach of the Green Bay Packers, who won the first two Super Bowl matches and three of the previous five NFL championships (1961, 1962, and 1965).
The most popular sporting event
For most of the past years, the Super Bowl is the most-watched program of US television broadcasts. The Super Bowl Sunday of the Super Bowl is not only one of the biggest sporting events but is now considered de facto as the national holiday of the United States.
The Pittsburgh Steelers won the Super Bowl six times, while the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers have won it five times. Seventeen other teams have won at least once the Super Bowl. The only four teams that have never won the Super Bowl are Lions Detroit, Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Houston Texas.
