Super Bowl - Statistics & Facts

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 2020 Super Bowl, for example, stood at a record 449 million U.S. dollars. An average 30-second ad-spot during the Super Bowl broadcast cost an estimated 5.6 million U.S. dollars in 2020.

It is estimated that Super Bowl-related consumer spending in the U.S. stood at about 13.9 billion U.S. dollars in 2021, despite the restrictions on gatherings in place as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The average American consumer planned to spend around 74.55 U.S. dollars on Super Bowl Sunday. This expenditure includes, among other things, food & beverages, televisions, furniture, team apparel & accessories and decorations. Also part of these expenditures is the money used to place bets on the game. In 2020, bets on the game to the value of around 154.68 million U.S. were placed at casinos in the state of Nevada.

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. A Super Bowl curse was lifted ahead of the 2021 event, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers became the first team in history to advance to the Super Bowl in their home stadium. The Bucs then banished the curse once and for all as they beat reigning champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, to claim their second Super Bowl win in franchise history.

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 2021, players on the winning team made 150 thousand U.S. dollars for playing in the game, while players on the losing team received a consolation of 75 thousand U.S. dollars for missing out on the big prize.
