In the months leading up to Super Bowl 50, to be held on Sunday, Feb. 7, at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, the NFL is celebrating its premier event with “Super Bowl on the Fifty,” honoring the prestige and the history of the championship game.
A 50th anniversary is often referred to as a “golden” anniversary, so the NFL shield logo and 50-yard line numerals on fields across the league will be painted in gold for the 2015 season. Team logos on sideline apparel and the logos for NFL events — including the Draft, the Kickoff and the playoffs — will also turn gold.
The Super Bowl logo features the number “50,” breaking for one year the league’s tradition of using Roman numerals to designate each championship game.
A gold “50,” crafted by Tiffany & Co., will appear alongside the Vince Lombardi Trophy all year and will be presented to the Super Bowl champions. Each number — cast in bronze and plated in 18-karat gold —weighs nearly 33 pounds.
“Super Bowl on the Fifty” will come to life in a variety of ways:
“Super Bowl on the Fifty” links the past 49 Super Bowls with this year’s game and honors the teams, players, coaches, fans and communities that have been a part the game’s history.
