The SuperFinal PLFA (more commonly known as the Polish Bowl) is the championship game of the Polish American Football League (PLFA). The first Polish Bowl played on November 12, 2006 in Warsaw at the Marymont stadium between top two teams in regular season. Since 2007 in the Polish Bowl game is played between Semi-Final winners.

As the Super Bowl, the Polish Bowl uses Roman numerals to identify each game, rather than the year in which it is held. For example, Polish Bowl I was played in 2006, while Polish Bowl VII played on July 15, 2012, to determine the champion of the 2012 regular season.

Since 2011 (Polish Bowl VI), official name of the Polish Bowl is SuperFinał PLFA, formerly the PLFA Final.[1]
