(Last Updated On: February 10, 2022)

It’s February, which means it’s Super Bowl time! If you like football, you’re probably already getting the barbeque, chips, and assortments of dip ready. Either that or you had no idea the Super Bowl was even happening, and you’re really just here for the funny advertisements or something. No matter which football camp you fall into, we can all be brought together by Super Bowl trivia facts. Here are some of those facts, you can dive into the snack stash a little early. We won’t tell the rest of the party.


Super Bowl Trivia Facts

1. Nobody can agree on how “Super Bowl” is spelled. Some people really prefer “Superbowl”

2. The Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans, Cleveland Browns, and Detroit Lions are the only teams that have never played in a Super Bowl.

3. On that topic, nine other teams haven’t ever won a Super Bowl. They’re the Buffalo Bills, Cincinnati Bengals, Tennessee Titans, Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, and Arizona Cardinals.

4. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the only team to have played a Super Bowl in their own stadium. 

5. The New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers have won the most Super Bowls, at six each. 

6. However, the New England Patriots pull ahead when it comes to Super Bowl appearances. They have eleven appearances. The Steelers have eight.

7. It’s not all wins for the Patriots, though. They have the most Super Bowl losses– at five. Oh, also the Broncos have five losses so we guess they’re marginally worse off. 

8. The closest thing there ever has been to a formal Super Bowl delay was in 2013, when there was a 34 minute wait due to a power outage.

9. Super Bowl XXIX was the highest scoring game: 49-26. It was played by the San Francisco 49ers and the San Diego Chargers. The 49ers won.

10. Miami has hosted eleven Super Bowls, which is the most championships a single city has hosted.

11. The Super Bowls are numbered in roman numerals because the NFL thought that people would confuse the number of the championship with the year in which it was played. 

12. Super Bowl ads are really expensive. In 2021, a 30 second spot was $5.5 million.

13. If you thought $5.5 million was a lot (it is), NBC is cranking the dial up even harder. For Super Bowl LVI (2022), they’re asking for $6.5 million per 30-second spot

14. The NFL has a “warm weather rule” for Super Bowls. They try not to have the game played in stadiums where it’s less than 50 degrees Fahrenheit unless there’s a dome.

15. The Lombardi Trophy costs like $50,000 to make. It also doesn’t look like a bowl.
