The game of football is an evolution of the game known as ” Rugby” that originally was played between groups of military men called Plongers. In the early 19th century, the first soccer teams were formed. The game was a hit and footballs were a big hit. The game was then brought to the public’s attention and today there are thousands of football leagues all over the world. Many American football teams even wear football helmets. But the history of football can’t be told without giving thanks to the men and women who played and watched it since its beginning.

Thanks to the football league, there were now professional football teams. The first Super Bowl was held in 18 76 at the Polo Grounds in New York. That was the first time that two professional football teams played each other. The game was extremely competitive and the outcome was never in doubt. A win by the football team would give them the championship and keep the New York Giants from joining the NFL.

The first year that the NFL entered into the world of professional football was called the United States Football League or the USFL. It lasted for one season before it was shut down. It was not long before the NFL would join the league and hold its first Super Bowl. With this new found fame the football league had another great year in its history and was then able to expand to six teams in the next few years. This gave way to what we know today as the NFL.

The next step for the football league was to create an international league. The first team to sign up was the English football league or the English Football Association. The EFL is the premier league in the world and is considered to be the top professional league in the English-speaking world. Since the EFL was the first internationally recognized sports league, there are millions of fans and many millions of people across the world that follow the teams.

Today there are many international football teams that compete against the NFL football teams. Many times the NFL has not traveled abroad in order to play foreign teams because they feel like they do not measure up against the better teams. However, since the relocation of the NFL to Los Angeles in 2021, the NFL has been traveling to different countries such as Mexico, Australia, and Germany. There are several games that have been won by the NFL and fans from the United States as well as other countries.
