Football can be traced back to early versions of rugby. Originally, football played in Britain involved kicking a ball into a goal, which eventually became known as soccer in the United States. American football resulted from several differences in the game that included a new set of rules, the use of hands, and the legalization of player-on-player contact.

In the 1920s, the first professional football league, American Professional Football Association, was formed. Later, this league changed its name to the National Football League we know today. Football became the primary sport in midwestern towns, but quickly gained national popularity. Still, college football, which was growing even quicker than the professional league, was the more popular version of the sport for the first half of the 20th century.

The modern era of football is said to have began in 1932, which brought about hash marks on the field and the goal moving farther back. It was played at the 1932 Summer Olympics and was featured at the 1933 World’s Fair. The first college all-star game occurred in 1934, which boosted popularity of both college and professional leagues.

In 1958, the NFL Championship Game was dubbed the “Greatest Game Every Played”. From the second half of the 20th century forward, football’s popularity exploded, leading to the creation of the Super Bowl.

Today, the Super Bowl is the most-watched television event in the US.
