The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League, pitting the champion of the National Football Conference and the American Football Conference against one another. It is one of the biggest single day sports events in the world drawing high television ratings each year. The 2015 Super Bowl had a record-breaking average TV-audience of 114.4 million viewers. The huge exposure of the Super Bowl generates millions of dollars in advertising revenue for the NFL. The advertising revenue from the 2019 Super Bowl, for example, stood at around 336 million U.S. dollars. An average 30-second ad-spot during the Super Bowl broadcast cost an estimated 5.25 million U.S. dollars in the same year. The majority of consumers regard Super Bowl commercials as entertainment and about a quarter of respondents also said that these commercials make them aware of the advertisers' brands according to a 2017 Statista survey.
The host city of the Super Bowl is usually chosen by the NFL several years before the game. Following Super Bowl LIV in 2020, Miami became the outright leader in terms of number of Super Bowls hosted. The Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots are the most successful team when looking at Super Bowl wins, having each won the Super Bowl an NFL-best six times. In 2020, players on the winning team made 130 thousand U.S. dollars for playing in the game, while players on the losing team received 65 thousand U.S. dollars.
