The National Football League (NFL) is a 32-team professional American football league split evenly between the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC) (AFC). The NFL is the highest professional level of American football in the globe, and it is one of the four main North American professional sports leagues. Each club plays 17 games and has one bye week during the NFL’s 18-week regular season, which spans from early September through early January. Following the regular season, seven teams from each conference (four division winners and three wild card teams) progress to the playoffs, a single-elimination tournament that culminates in the Super Bowl, which is generally played on the first Sunday in February and features the NFC and AFC champions. New York City is the league’s headquarters.

The NFL was founded in 1920 as the American Professional Football Association (APFA), but for the 1922 season, it was renamed the National Football League. After choosing champions through end-of-season standings for the first few years, the NFL established a playoff system in 1933, which culminated in the NFL Championship Game until 1966. The Super Bowl was originally contested in 1967 to decide a champion amongst the top teams from the two leagues following an agreement to unite the NFL and the rival American Football League (AFL), and it has remained the last game of each NFL season since the merger was finalized in 1970. The NFL now boasts the highest average attendance of any professional sports league in the world (67,591) and is the most popular in the United States. The Super Bowl is also one of the most popular club athletic events in the world, with individual games accounting for several of the most-watched television programs in American history, with all five games occupying Nielsen’s Top 5 list of all-time most-watched U.S. television broadcasts by 2015. The NFL is the richest professional sports league in terms of revenue and has the most valued franchises.

With 13 championships, the Green Bay Packers have the most in the NFL, having won nine before the Super Bowl era and four afterward. The Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots both have six Super Bowl championships since the game’s inception.

Representatives from the Akron Pros, Canton Bulldogs, Cleveland Indians, and Dayton Triangles met at the Jordan and Hupmobile auto dealership in Canton, Ohio, on August 20, 1920. The American Professional Football Conference (APFC) was formed as a result of this meeting, with the goal of “raising the standard of professional football in every way possible, eliminating bidding for players between rival clubs, and securing cooperation in the formation of schedules,” according to the Canton Evening Repository.

On September 17, 1920, a conference was conducted with representatives from four states: Ohio’s Akron, Canton, Cleveland, and Dayton; Indiana’s Hammond Pros and Muncie Flyers; New York’s Rochester Jeffersons; and Illinois’ Rock Island Independents, Decatur Staleys, and Racine (Chicago) Cardinals. The American Professional Football Association became the new name for the league (APFA). The league’s inaugural president was Jim Thorpe, and it consisted of 14 clubs (the Buffalo All-Americans, Chicago Tigers, Columbus Panhandles, and Detroit Heralds joined the league during the year). The Massillon Tigers of Massillon, Ohio, were also there on September 17 but did not field a team that year. Only two of these teams, the Decatur Staleys (now the Chicago Grizzlies) and the Decatur Staleys (now the Chicago Grizzlies).
