A full list of every NFL Football Super Bowl champions since the first one in 1967. Home > Super Bowl > Awards > List of Winners The Super Bowl Champions The Super Bowl is the National Football League's annual championship game (NFL). The following is a list of all Super Bowl champions since Green Bay won the first one in 1967. No team has ever won more than two Super Bowls - until 2019 when Boston College Eagles did so.
Hail BC! The Patriots are done. Just like that, the New England Patriots' perfect season came to an end at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles. Tom Brady was intercepted by Malcolm Jenkins with 43 seconds left on the clock, allowing the Eagles to win their first Super Bowl title. Don't feel too bad for Pats fans though, because this year's title will not be forgotten anytime soon. With his fifth Super Bowl victory, Andy Reid is now the winningest coach in NFL history.
Congratulations to the Eagles! And no, I'm not talking about their new title. The term "football fan" may mean different things to different people, but for me it means never having to say you're sorry. Well, maybe after this year. But still, congratulations to the Eagles!
Since the inaugural Super Bowl in 1967, halftime entertainment has been a key draw for the championship game. It used to feature marching bands, military drill teams, and even astronauts, but it has evolved through the years.
The Super Bowl is the National Football League (NFL) championship game contested in January or February between the winners of the league's American Football Conference and National Football Conference. Each year, a new city hosts the game.
15 January 1967 On January 15, 1967, the inaugural Super Bowl was played. It was previously known as the "AFL-NFL World Championship Game" after the National Football League (NFL) and the American Football League (AFL) merged. It was held in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California. The NFL's New York Giants beat the AFL's Green Bay Packers 21 to 17 in what is considered one of the greatest sporting events ever held.
The game itself was a close one with both teams being within a score at half time. The Giants went on to win their first title by outscoring their opponents 22-7 in the second half. This year's Super Bowl was watched by 67,821 people. The game's revenue was $7 million with $1.5 million going to the winning team - $500,000 went to charity.
The NFL had been looking for a way to increase its popularity and bring in more fans. They decided to merge with the American Football Association to form the modern day NFL. The new league would have equal representation from each team with no dominant powerhouse like there is now. This move would help prevent future scandals such as player collusion which was very common before 1967.
The merger was not well received by everyone. There were concerns that this would destroy competitive balance but this never happened. Instead, both leagues became more popular following the merger so it can be said that the merger was a success.
The Super Bowl program dates back to 1967, when the AFL and NFL played their first title game. Although it was not known as the Super Bowl at the time, it would not be long before the moniker became synonymous with one of the world's largest yearly athletic events.
The original Super Bowl was held at Stanford Stadium in Palo Alto, California. The National Football League (NFL) defeated the American Football League (AFL) 26-7. The second Super Bowl was held at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. The NFL defeated the AFL 10-3. These are the only two Super Bowls that have been played so far. In 1968, a third game was held at Miami Beach, Florida. The AFL beat the NFL 21-0. And so the tradition continues...
There have been more than 100 seasons of regular season football play since then, but only two teams have ever won the championship game multiple times: the Pittsburgh Steelers and San Francisco 49ers. Both titles have been won by the NFC team.
The Super Bowl media market is the largest of any sports event other than the Olympics. It ranks just behind the Olympic Games in terms of audience size. The NFL has a contract with CBS to air all Super Bowl games beginning with the 1969 season. The network pays $20 million per year for the right to broadcast the game.
On January 15, 1967, the inaugural Super Bowl was played.
The game has been held every year since then in either February or March. It is usually the last game of the regular season and the winner is declared that year's champion. The game has been played every year except 1978 when it was not held because of the 1979 Winter Olympics being held in Moscow, Russia. This event is sometimes called the "Super Bowl X."
The championship game has been played every year except 1994 when it was not held because of a labor dispute between the owners of the two leagues. From 1995 to 2012, there were no joint championships due to the NFL refusing to continue playing after the 1996 season. However, in 2013, the leagues came to an agreement in which the 2014 season would be their first shared title game. The 2015 game will be the first time since 1967 that neither team had won at least one prior Super Bowl title.
Although the game began as a rivalry between the NFL's New York Giants and the AFL's Green Bay Packers, over time other teams have emerged as contenders.
