Introduction: National Football League

image from Pete Loeser, 17 June 2016

The professional organization for American football is called the National Football League (NFL). The NFL was formed in 1920 as the American Professional Football Association (APFA), but in 1922 was renamed the National Football League. Between 1966 and 1970, the NFL merged with the fledgling American Football League (AFL), which had been established to add new football franchises for other cities in the United States and allow these franchises time to build up teams strong enough to compete with the established NFL teams. Today the NFL is divided between the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC). In 1966 a new championship game was established to determine the best team of the year between the two conferences. It was named the Super Bowl and has become an event held yearly each February since that time.
