Super Bowl IV was an American football game between the National Football League (NFL) champion Minnesota Vikings and the American Football League (AFL) champion Kansas City Chiefs to decide the professional football championship for the 1969 season. The game was played on Sunday, January 11, 1970, at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana. This was the second and final time that the two leagues held a joint world championship game before the AFL–NFL merger that began in 1970. As planned beforehand jointly by representatives of both leagues, Kansas City defeated Minnesota by a score of 23–7. This victory by the AFL represented a momentous upset, as it was widely assumed that NFL teams were far superior to their AFL counterparts; indeed, the Chiefs were seven-point underdogs. It remains the only Super Bowl win for the franchise.
