NFL is one of the largest and most commercialised global sports. The Superbowl final regularly draws in viewing figures in excess of 150,000,000 people. Players are some of the most well-known sportsmen in the world and are fought over in the draft held before each season.
Created in the USA; the National Football League has now become a hugely popular sport around the world. The league consists of 32 teams, the majority located on the East Coast, who play a 256 game season starting the week after Labor Day and running through till Christmas. The sport has progressed significantly since its inception; in no aspect more so than its physiological impact. Teams will rarely hold any training sessions where contact is included between players due to worries over player safety as well as the high financial price surrounding each individual.
The winning team of each year receive the Lombardi Trophy. The team gets to keep the sterling silver trophy made by Tiffany & Co each year which is often valued up to $300,000, along with rings for both sets of players who contest the final.
