The Super Bowl is one of the most viewed, televised programs. This event has been going on for more than 50 years! Some of the biggest parts of the Super Bowl are the ads and halftime show. Today I’m going to share with you some incredible and unbelievable facts and information regarding the most crazy event of the year! 

Here are 6 crazy facts about the Super Bowl! 

~Each team is given 108 balls to use during the game. This is due to the amount that can be lost, deflated, or misplaced. They use these for practice and during the real deal game. In total there are 216 balls being used between the two teams, and each of these balls are handcrafted in the USA. 

~Each player on the team is given a car that they get to rent for the week of the game. This is because they are in a different location practicing, and this helps to boost advertisement for these dealer brands when possible buyers see famous players cruising around in them. These cars are luxurious and very high quality for the players to drive in comfort. They are in for quite a ride. 

~The real point of halftime is to give the players time to workout, relax, and rejuvenate. The NFL turned this into a musical opportunity for any musician who is willing to pay tons to get a spot during the halftime show. It’s a great time to sit back and watch a show while the players get their mindsets back in the game and ready to play!

~Super Bowl tickets cost big bucks. The average price for one in 2016 was $4,700! Insane!!!! That price is crazy compared to back in 1967 when each ticket cost $6! Each ticket has to be on paper– electronic tickets are not allowed. The revenue that the NFL makes is off the charts! They are not short money here. 

~The Super Bowl was not actually referred to as the Super Bowl until Super Bowl lll. It used to be called the AFL-NFL World Championship Game which stands for American Football League-National Football League. Boy, how the times have changed. 

~The words “Commissioner,” “Wilson,” and “Made in the USA” are printed on every single football made for the Super Bowl. In case one is to get misplaced or taken by another team, the logo and branding is still on the foot. Branding is huge at the Super Bowl.
