The NFL today released the official logo of Super Bowl 50 which will be played across the bay at the new Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara. The big surprise here is for the first and only time they will not be using Roman Numerals. So, instead of the expected Super Bowl L, it reads Simply Super Bowl 50.
For what it's worth, It has been noted that the logo as it stands appears as if the logo reads 510 -- the area code in Oakland.
There are two versions of the logo, the simple one with the Silver Lombardi Trophy with the larger number 50 behind it in gold and the more detailed one which incorporates Levi's Stadium as well as the reflection of several iconic images from the San Francisco skyline including the Trans America building, Coit Tower, and the Golden Gate bridge.
The Super Bowl will be played in the stadium, which is the new home of the San Francisco 49ers, on February 7, 2016.
It offers a nice goal for the Raiders. Both for the chance of representing the AFC in that game as well as building their own state of the art stadium which could invite a Super Bowl and all the revenue that comes with it.
