Important Things to Know About the Super Bowl
While this year’s event promises to be exciting, you can learn some interesting and fun facts, updates, and trivia about the Super Bowl before the kick-off event. This information will help you analyze and place your bets wisely.
The team with the highest appearances in the Super Bowl is the New England Patriots. They have been featured in 11 Super Bowl Games since 1985. They were in the finals in 1996, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2007, 2011, 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2018. The Pittsburgh Steelers come second in the all-time Super Bowl appearance list. They have appeared in eight Super Bowl games in total.
Do you know the team with the most Super Bowl victories? That’s the Steelers and the Patriots. They have six wins each.
This record is also shared by two teams. The teams with the most failures in the history of the Super Bowl are the New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos. Both have five losses each.
Food and Ads
Records show that Americans consume tons of food and drinks on Super Bowl Sundays. A recent survey claims that over 1.42 billion chicken wings are expected to be consumed during the 2022 Super Bowl.
What may blow up your mind is the amount spent on commercials. The 30-seconds ad you see near Hollywood and Vine, showing the Vince Lombardi Trophy and other highlights of past games, was sold for $6.5 million. According to Wall Street, the amount is one million dollars more than the cost of the 2021 Super Bowl ad.
Los Angeles and the Super Bowl
As you already know, Los Angeles will host the super bowl this season. The city of entertainment and casinos will be hosting the game for the first time after 29 years, but it prides itself on hosting major matches in NFL history.
The 1967 game, where the Green Bay Packers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs, was held in Los Angeles. The 17-0 game of the Miami Dolphins in 1972 was also played in LA. The City also holds the record of hosting the largest audience in Super Bowl history with the 103,985 fans who came to the Rose Bowl to watch the Los Angeles Rams game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl XIV.
All of the players participating in the 2022 Super Bowl will get huge payments. If a player is part of the winning team, he’ll get $150,000, and a player on the losing team will get paid $75,000. When compared to last year’s earnings, it’s a huge raise. Last season, players from the winning team earned $130,000, and those who lost got paid $65,000.
This year’s Super Bowl will feature accomplished but young coaches. Rams’ Sean McVay is 36 years old, and Zac Taylor of the Bengals is only 38. It’s the youngest coaching matchup for a major sports championship after 1970 when Scotty Bowman (36) and Harry Sinden (37) coached their teams in the Stanley Cup Finals.
As you already know, this year’s event features the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams won the Championship in 2000, and we will see if the Bengals will be able to bag their first-ever trophy in history.
The Super Bowl is a big title that every football team wants to win. It’s arguably the most remarkable sporting accolade in America. Fans can expect to witness some of the best sporting performances they have ever seen in the Super Bowl LVI. There will be thrills, a lot of fun, and potentially some history-making performances.
