Superbowl Plans

By: Rishabh W.

On February 7, 2016, Super Bowl 50 will kickoff. The game will be played at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA. The city of San Francisco is building a huge Super Bowl city, and it will be aired all over. CBS will air the game. The advertisement price is a record high $5,000,000. Since it is the golden anniversary of the game, in addition to receiving the Vince Lombardi trophy, players on the winning team will get an 18 carat gold plated “50”. Jim Nantz will be the play by play person, while Phil Simms will be the analyst. Due to this being the 50th anniversary, the NFL decided to use Arabic numerals, instead of the standard Roman numerals. However, the tradition will return for Super Bowl LI. The last Super Bowl in the San Francisco Bay Area was Super Bowl XIX, in 1985. The British band Coldplay will star the halftime show, with Beyoncé and Bruno Mars also being featured. It can be fun to see all this, and be on the lookout for the Super Bowl City.
