Beginning in 1967 with an attendance of 61,946, the first pro football “Big Game” was held between Green Bay and Kansas City at Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles. Green Bay won 35-10, and the team’s quarterback, Bart Starr, was named most valuable player.
Fifty-one years later — as teams vie for their chance to take home the coveted sterling silver trophy designed and produced by Tiffany & Co. — the largest-annual-sporting-event phenomenon continues to elicit a frenzy in football fans that is undeniable,
Further marking the significance of this highly anticipated yearly sporting event are the TV viewing statistics that show well over 100 million Americans have tuned in to catch the incredible champion-defining pro football battle every year since 2010.
Not to mention the ever-increasing prices of a 30-second television commercial during the event has achieved new heights — in some cases costing advertisers in excess of $5 million.
Now considered a tradition in the U.S., or even an unofficial national holiday by some, the pro football showdown on the first Sunday in February — it used to be played on the last Sunday in January until the 9/11 attacks resulted in delaying the 2002 game by a week — is forever embedded in America’s cultural landscape.
