It is tough to believe that American football has been around for just under 100 years. It is an immortal game for many and one that they begin watching and enjoying as kids. Though you can play football in a "Pop Warner" league when you are in grade school or even play some college ball, it is the professional league that has everyone's interest. Known as the National Football League, or NFL, it is one of the most frequently watched sports in the U.S.
It is divided into 32 teams split between the NFC and AFC (National Football Conference and American Football Conference). The season runs a short 17 weeks and is finalized every year by the Super Bowl. If you needed proof that the NFL is one of the most popular sports in the world, you need only look at the number of viewers for the Super Bowl 2013 event, which (according to International Business Times) was over 108 American viewers alone.
The NFL uses a corporate structure, and this explains the reasoning behind the full-blown entertainment options that most teams make available. For example, few people will purchase tickets to a game, take a seat and get little more than a typical football experience. Instead, most attendees get to enjoy eating excellent food, watching half-time shows, seeing famous and notable singers performing the national anthem and then there are always the extremely popular teams of cheerleaders - and so much more.
In addition to the entertainment factor of an NFL game, there are also the famous rivalries. Over time, many of the most popular teams have developed relationships with other teams. Often these are super competitive and seem to come from the ways that teams always end up in the top tiers at the end of their season. For example, teams like the Dallas Cowboys and the New England Patriots are fan favorites. Some teams are worth enormous sums because of their notoriety, with the Cowboys, Patriots, and the Washington Redskins topping the list.
Each team has its own stadium, and all of the NFL teams appear in lists of the most valuable sports franchises in the world. This proves that a seat at any NFL game gives more than just a good football competition - it gives hours of entertainment and fun.
