Which of these North American major sports championships is the newest?
The World Series
The Super Bowl
The NBA Finals
The Stanley Cup Final
The oldest of all North American sports finals is the World Series, which was first played in 1903. Hockey’s Stanley Cup Final dates to 1914, though the Stanley Cup itself is older; professional teams could win it via challenge beginning in 1906, and the trophy existed as an amateur prize as far back as the 1890s.
The NBA traces its championship history back to the 1947 BAA Finals, and the first finals to exist under the “NBA” name was in 1950. Either way, that’s older than the Super Bowl, which came into being only after the NFL merged with the AFL. The first “AFL-NFL Championship” was played in 1966. The league officially adopted the “Super Bowl” name in time for 1969’s Super Bowl III.
Answer: The correct answer is The Super Bowl
