Super Bowl 50 will be Standard Numbers Instead of Roman

For Super Bowl 50, NFL Switching from Roman Numerals

According to CBS Sports, The NFL will not be utilizing roman numerals for Super Bowl L, er, I mean, 50. This will only be for one year.

In 2015, the NFL will be celebrating the 50th Super Bowl, which is the golden anniversary. So, with the game being played in San Francisco, the logo incorporates the Golden Gate Bridge for a game being played in the Golden State.

“When we developed the Super Bowl XL logo, that was the first time we looked at the letter ‘L,'” NFL’s Vice President of Brand and Creative, Jamie Weston told “Up until that point, we had only worked with X’s, V’s and I’s. And, at that moment, that’s when we started to wonder what will happen when we get to 50?”

The game will be played Sunday, February 2nd, 2015
