What is Super Bowl?

The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL), the highest level of professional American football. This year the American Football Conference (AFC) champions, the New England Patriots, will play the National Football Conference (NFC) champions, the Atlanta Falcons, to decide the league champion for the 2016 season.

It costs between $4,166 to $14,000 for a single ticket to see the Super Bowl at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas on Sunday (US time), and only the luckiest ones will get it.

As the most watched football game and TV show in the US, Super Bowl has become an unofficial national festival, the second biggest eating day after Thanksgiving.
