Photos of the Very First Super Bowl Ever, 1967

The very First professional AFL-NFL World Championship Game in American football, later known as Super Bowl I and referred to in some contemporary reports as the Supergame, was held on January 15, 1967 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California. The National Football League (NFL) champion Green Bay Packers defeated the American Football League (AFL) champion Kansas City Chiefs by the score of 35–10.
Here are some photos of the first Super Bowl taken by LIFE photographer Bill Ray.
