The game is hosted in a different city each year. A merger agreement in 1966 between the then-American Football League and National Football League resulted in this championship game, as well as the renaming of the leagues as conferences. As of this year, the New England Patriots and  the Pittsburgh Steelers each have the most Super Bowl wins with six championships each. The Pats also have the most championship appearances with 11.
