The Super Bowl is the National Football League’s annual title game. Since 1966, it has replaced the NFL Championship Game as the final game of each NFL season. The game is being played on the first Sunday in February since 2004.
The game was born out of a 1966 merger deal between the NFL and the rival American Football League (AFL) to pit their top teams against each other for a championship. It was formerly known as the AFL–NFL World Championship Game until Super Bowl III in 1969, when the moniker “Super Bowl” was chosen.
The Super Bowl is one of the most viewed athletic events in the world, and it frequently draws the greatest audience of all American broadcasts during the year. The Super Bowl is the most-watched annual sporting event in the world, second only to the UEFA Champions League final, and the Super Bowl is one of the top seven most-watched broadcasts in American television history.
Where is Super Bowl 2022?
The Super Bowl will be held this year at SoFi Stadium, home of the Rams and Chargers. The Super Bowl was supposed to be held in 2021 at the new stadium, which opened in 2020. The NFL, however, decided to transfer the 2021 Super Bowl to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Fla., and the 2022 Super Bowl to Los Angeles due to weather-related project delays.
Super Bowl LVI will become the 56th Super Bowl and the 52nd championship game in the modern era of the National Football League. It is the final game of the 2021 season and the first round of the NFL playoffs in 2021–22. The game will take place at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, on February 13, 2022.
