As the AFC Champions Kansas City Chiefs prepare to take on the NFC Champions Philadelphia Eagles, here is all you need to know about the NFL Super Bowl 2023.
NFL Super Bowl- A brief history
The NFL Super Bowl is considered as the pinnacle event of the National Football League. It is the annual championship game where the winner of the National Football Conference faces the winner of the American Football Conference in a playoff game. The Super Bowl started after the official merger of the American Football League and the National Football League in 1966. Although the teams from each league were merged into a single League after 1970, the first-ever Super Bowl took place in 1967.
The name ‘Super Bowl’ was first coined by Lamar Hunt, the founder of the Kansas City Chiefs franchise. The Green Bay Packers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs with a score of (35-10) in the first-ever Super Bowl game in 1967. The Super Bowl trophy is named the Vince Lombardi trophy to honor the legendary player and coach. Super Bowls are usually played on a Sunday which is popularly known as Super Bowl Sunday. The winners of the Super Bowl are awarded a Super Bowl Championship ring to commemorate their win, and the best player is also honored as the Super Bowl MVP. Historically the NFC leads the Super Bowl wins over the AFC with 29 wins against 27 wins.

Venues and Host Cities
The venue for Super Bowl 2023 is the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. As one of the iconic sporting events of the year, the city which hosts the Super Bowl holds an important status.

Qualification process for the Super Bowl
Are you wondering how a team gets to make it to the Super Bowl? Do not worry, we have got you.
The NFL is divided into two major Conferences, the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC). Each Conference comprises 16 teams, further divided into groups of fours (Divisions). The Super Bowl is a match between the top teams of each Conference.
Each team plays the other three teams in its division both at home and away during the course of the season, while the other 10 games that make up their 16-game schedule are set.
The teams with the best records in each of the four divisions in each conference, together with the two teams with the next-best records in each conference (the wild card teams), advance to the postseason (NFL Playoffs) after the conclusion of the regular season.
With each team seeded appropriately based on their win-loss records to establish the schedule for the play-offs, a total of 12 teams—six from each conference—proceed from the regular season on the way to the Super Bowl. The road to the Super Bowl comprises three rounds, the Wild Card Round, the Divisional Round and the Conference Championship Round. The winners of each Conference Championship advance to play in the Super Bowl.
