This marks the first time in at least eight years that a PE-F team at any age level has made it to the Super Bowl.

The PE-F Minors team finished the season with a 9-3 record, following up a successful 10-1 run last year that ended in the division championship game.

The location of the Super Bowl rotates around the 10-county league every 10 years, and the site of playoff games rotates around every five years. Next year, Prince Edward-Farmville will host both.
