Best Answer

The first Super Bowl game played in 1967 was known as the 'AFL-NFL World Championship Game.' Lamar Hunt, founder of the American Football League and owner of the Kansas City Chiefs from 1960 until his death in 2006, first suggested the name 'Super Bowl' based on the 'Super Ball' toy his children had been playing with. He initially suggested it as a temporary name until a better name could be determined. It wasn't until Super Bowl III in 1969 when the championship game became officially known as the Super Bowl.
