About the NFC Championship Game
It's the biggest game of the year so far, and NFC Championship tickets are starting to get really hot. The NFC Championship game is one of two final playoff matches in the NFL and determines who will represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. The outcome of the NFC Championship game determines the champion of the National Football Conference who will then advance to play the winner of the American Football Conference in the Super Bowl. The two conferences came about after the 1970 merger between the NFL and the AFL. The winner of the NFC Championship game receives the George Halas Trophy, which was named after George Halas of the Chicago Bears who had a significant impact on the football team.
The NFC consists of the the NFL teams that existed before the NFL-AFL merger in 1970. Since then, the Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Carolina Panthers have been added to the league. This makes up a total of 16 teams in the NFC conference, and altogether 32 teams in the NFL. Once the regular football season comes to a close, a round of playoff games begin with the top six teams of the NFC, which include the four division champions and two wild card teams. After two rounds, the remaining two teams face each other in the last round to determine that conference’s champion in the NFC Championship game. The site of the game is determined by seed ranking, so the host is the team with the highest seed ranking at that point.
The first NFC Championship game occurred in 1970 between the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers, the Cowboys winning the conference with a score of 17-10. Get your tickets for the NFC Championship ready to go and be there for all the action!
