NFL Unveils Plans To Celebrate Super Bowl 50
The NFL is launching a year-long celebration of the Super Bowl to commemorate Super Bowl 50, which will be played on Sunday, February 7, 2016 at Levi’s Stadium in the San Francisco Bay Area. The plans were announced today at the NFL Annual Meeting at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona.
The 2015 season will feature a gold thematic signifying the 50th “golden” Super Bowl that will be visible on the field and throughout the season. The 50-yard line numerals and NFL shield logo at every stadium will be gold. Team logos on sideline apparel will have accents of gold and logos for NFL events, including Draft, Kickoff and the Playoffs, will turn to gold.
The NFL unveiled last year the Super Bowl 50 logos that feature “50,” breaking for one year its unique tradition of using Roman numerals to identify that season’s championship game. To commemorate this, the NFL commissioned Tiffany & Co to handcraft the 50. Each number is cast in bronze, plated in 18kt gold and weighs nearly 33 lbs. The gold 50 will appear alongside the Vince Lombardi Trophy all year and will be presented to the Super Bowl champions at the MVP and head coach press conference the morning following the game.
