Where was the 1967 NFL championship game played?

The 1967 National Football League Championship Game was held on December 31, 1967, at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. It determined the NFL champion, who faced the AFL winner in Super Bowl II, dubbed the second AFL-NFL World Championship Game. The Chicago Bears defeated the Houston Oilers 43–21.

Lambeau Field had opened its doors to football in September 1965. The field was originally known as War Memorial Stadium after it was given that name by the city of Green Bay in honor of those lost in war. The Packers renamed it Lambeau Field after founder and owner Joe Thomas Lambeau died in 1920. The team has played their home games at Lambeau Field ever since.

Lambeau Field is one of only two NFL stadiums still in use (the other being New York's Giants Stadium). The stadium features a natural grass field and has been called "the most beautiful stadium in America" by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joe Montana. It is located five minutes from the center of town and sits about 20 miles north of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

In addition to the Packers, other teams have called Lambeau Field home including the University of Wisconsin Badgers football team from 1919 to 1930. They moved across town to what is now State Farm Stadium when the new facility was built in 1932.

What was the Super Bowl called before 1967?

The World Championship Game Between the AFL and the NFL 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 game was originally intended to be a three-game series with both teams playing one game each. However, due to poor attendance for the first game, it was decided that only one more game would be played. The merged team was named the Los Angeles Rams because there were no other franchises available in the merging process. The championship at the time was determined by winning percentage over two regular season games. The Rams went on to defeat the Baltimore Colts 31-17 in what many consider to be one of the greatest football games ever played.

There have been calls from some members of the public and some politicians to change the name of the game to something else. These include names such as "Super Bowl IV" and "World Series Game 1". However, these proposals have never gone beyond the suggestion stage.

In 1967, prior to the first game being played, the title was given its current name. The idea for this name came from a survey which was sent to all 32 owners. They were asked to suggest a name for the game and the winner was chosen based on votes from most to least popular.

What did they call the championship games in 1970?

Prior to the merger in 1970, the NFL and the AFL agreed to have an ultimate championship game, initially known as the AFL-NFL World Championship Game and eventually renamed the Super Bowl after 1968. Following the 1970 merger, the Super Bowl remained the game that determined the NFL champion.

The first Super Bowl was played on February 3, 1971, at Stanford Stadium in Palo Alto, California. The Miami Dolphins defeated the Minnesota Vikings 31-3. The halftime show featured performances by The Beach Boys.

The Super Bowl is the most watched television program in the United States and worldwide. It is held each year during February in either Los Angeles or New York City. The 2019 Super Bowl will be held at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Stadium in Westwood, California on February 3rd. It will be the 52nd time that it has been held and the second time at UCLA. It will be the first Super Bowl to be held in Southern California since 2006 when it was also held at USC's Coliseum in Los Angeles.

The NFL began holding divisional championships events in 1933, with the exception of 1942 when they didn't play due to World War II. The AFL started holding their own divisional championships in 1969. From 1973 to 1976, both leagues held their own divisional championships simultaneously but only the winner of each conference's playoff game would advance to the Super Bowl.
