Super Bowl Overview

The Football National Championships, known as the Pop Warner Super Bowl, consists of 72 teams from eight Pop Warner Regions playing in 3 Age/Weight Classifications as well as 3 Age-Based Classifications. There are also two playing divisions in the age-weight classification, Division I and Division II.

A football team plays a 7-to-9 game schedule and at the end of the regular season, usually during the last week in October, a team prepares for league playoffs. Once a league champion has been decided a team has won the right to participate in regional championships.

Those teams that win at the regional championships advance to ESPN Wide World of Sports™ to compete for a national championship in the Jr. Pee Wee, Pee Wee & Jr. Varsity divisions, as well as the 9/10, 11/12 & 13/14 age-based divisions.

More than 100 games take place throughout the 7-day event in December, including the Division I Jr. Varsity National Championship game which will be featured LIVE on ESPNU (Saturday, December 14 at 10 a.m.) and throughout the NFL Super Bowl week. Throughout the week, several games are also aired live on ESPN3/WatchESPN and streamed live on the Pop Warner YouTube page.

The Pop Warner Super Bowl week also includes several International Division games, featuring teams from all over the world competing at ESPN Wide World of Sports.

The 2019 Pop Warner Super Bowl takes place on Saturday, December 7th through Saturday, December 14th at ESPN Wide World of Sports™.
