Sunday is the day; the day when we get to watch the “game of the year;” the day a new batch of men are inscribed into NFL history. While the Super Bowl is widely-considered a special occasion, this year is extra special as we celebrate the Super Bowl’s fiftieth year of existence.

The first “Super Bowl” took place January 15th, 1967 and, in the more than 50 years since, a lot of things have changed, as you can imagine.

I did a little research to highlight some of the key changes from then vs. now. The stats I found are pretty amazing, and surprising – especially the attendance size with only 14 Thousand more attendees who can attend Super Bowl L.
