The San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs are headed to Super Bowl LIV. It’s been a long time in the making for both teams—the Chiefs haven’t won a Super Bowl since 1969, and the 49ers haven’t won one since 1994. The teams are headed to Miami and will face off on February 2nd to see who will take home the title of champion. In the meantime, here are five fun facts about the Super Bowl to get you excited about the game!
-In 2018, the Super Bowl was held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where the outside temperature was three degrees Fahrenheit, the coldest temperature ever recorded at a Super Bowl. Fortunately for the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles, the game was played at the US Bank Stadium, an indoor stadium where the temperature was at a nicely controlled seventy degrees!
-Super Bowl ads are wildly expensive, and they get more and more expensive with each passing year. This year, businesses that want a thirty-second commercial to be aired during the Super Bowl have to pay $5-5.6 million!
-The New England Patriots have made the most Super Bowl appearances, but they tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl wins at six each.
-The Super Bowl has only gone into overtime once in its fifty-three-year history. It happened in 2017 when the New England Patriots came back from a 28-3 deficit against the Atlanta Falcons and won the game in overtime.
