For the purposes of the National Football League (NFL), an American football league, the American Football Conference (AFC) and National Football Conference (NFL) each have 32 clubs (NFC).
In terms of professional American football, the National Football League (NFL) is the most well regarded league in the world.
An 18-week regular season, beginning in early September and concluding in early January, is the norm in the NFL, with each club playing 17 games and taking a bye week.
A single-elimination playoff tournament concludes in the Super Bowl, which is played between the AFC and NFC champions in February and features seven teams from each conference (four division winners and three wild card teams) after the regular season.
New York City is home to the league’s headquarters.
For the NFL, ownership of a club is prohibited for religious groups, government entities, and non-profit organizations, as well as companies.
Under a grandfather clause, the Green Bay Packers are free from the NFL’s prohibition on ownership groups of more than 24 people or publicly traded businesses owning NFL franchises; the team’s ownership is held by stockholders.
The Harris County, Texas government, which owns 5% of the Houston Texans, is likewise grandfathered in, as the regulation prohibiting governments from holding a team came into force in 2007.
However, the now-defunct Arena Football League teams in the NFL team’s home market were granted an exception to the NFL’s constitution, which prohibits their owners from owning other professional football teams.
For the first time in its history, the controlling owners of NFL clubs were allowed to own major league baseball, basketball, and hockey teams if they were located in the NFL team’s home market or if they were not located in any NFL cities.
