Super Bowl is the Sunday on which the Super Bowl is played, normally in early February. Thousands of people gather to watch the game and the meeting is really well know due to the large amount of food that is consumed by attendees. 

At the beginning, the Super Bowl was celebrated only in the United States, but every year new countries join the celebration of the game.

These are the most representatives ones during 2014
