The Super Bowl is the championship game of the National Football League season. The championship game is played annually on a Sunday marking Super Bowl Sunday as an unofficial national holiday amongst American football fans.

The first Super Bowl ever played was on the 15th of January 1967 and now fifty years later the 2016 Super Bowl will be taking place. The championship game originated with the National Football League and the American Football League forming a merger agreement.

The 2016 Super Bowl Week
The event is set to be spectacular as the 2016 Super Bowl marks the fiftieth anniversary of the National Football League’s championship game. The San Francisco Bay area will play host to more than one million people who will be attending the festivities. Super Bowl Week will open on the 30th of January 2016 and the NFL Experience along with Super bowl City will be featured.
Super Bowl City features activities for all ages and focuses on celebrating American football. Additional events include a parade in Santa Clara, a food; wine and beer festival and pep rallies. The Super Bowl 50 host committee has decided on dedicating 25% of all funds raised to charitable causes within the San Francisco Bay area.
The Fiftieth Super Bowl Edition
The fiftieth championship does not make use of the National Football League’s traditional Roman numerals, for the title, instead the League decided on using the Arabic numerals as the letter L did not fit in with a suitable logo so the championship was dubbed Super Bowl 50. Since fiftieth anniversaries are known as golden anniversaries and the championship is set to take place in California, which is known, as the Golden state, the main theme of the 2016 Super Bowl celebrates everything golden. Hints of the golden theme were seen during the 2015 NFL season, which tied in with the lead up to 2016’s Golden Super Bowl.
