Super Bowl Party Conversation FactsThe Super Bowl has not always been called the Super Bowl. The first three games, which we today refer to as Super Bowls I, II and III, were called the “AFL-NFL World Championship Game”. The first AFL-NFL World Championship game was played in 1967 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum between the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs (the site was not determined until December 1, 1966, just 6 weeks before kickoff and the date of the game was not set until December 13, 1966). The Packers won 35 to 10. Attendance for the game was 61,946 (67% capacity and smallest number of people to ever view a Super Bowl game); pre-game and half-time entertainment was provided by the University of Arizona and University of Michigan marching bands; the AFC Chiefs used their league’s Spalding football while the Packers used their leagues Wilson football. “Super Bowl I”, was, and still is today, the only Super Bowl to be broadcast simultaneously by two networks-CBS, which had the television rights to the NFL games and NBC, which had the television rights to the AFL games. The owner of the Kansas City Chiefs, Lamar Hunt, first coined the term “Super Bowl” based on a Super Ball toy his kids often played with. The name “Super Bowl became official in 1969.
