The National Football League since its inception in the year 1920 has always been the premier football entity in football. It has had to face competition from various other rival leagues over the years but the biggest out of them all was the emergence of the American Football league in 1960. AFL began to challenge the NFL on all fronts. The two leagues would fight tooth and nail for territories and the best players in the sport. That remained the case for six years before the two leagues decided to merge together to form a single entity from the year 1970 onwards. It was also agreed upon that until the merger took effect, champions of both leagues would square-off in a championship game to decide who the best team in the sport was. The game was officially named the "AFL-NFL Championship Game" which was changed to the Super Bowl in time for the start of the third edition. The title has stuck since.
