Super Bowl 50

Celebrate Super Bowl 50 at MWR Events

On February 7th in Levi’s® Stadium in Santa Clara, California, the NFL will host Super Bowl 50. To brand this golden anniversary, the league decided to ditch the Roman numbers. They were originally used because the game is played in a different year than the regular season. For example, Super Bowl I was played on January 15, 1967, following the 1966 regular season. This change is a good thing. Can you imagine being the losing team in game “L”?

Some Fun Super Bowl Facts

  • There are 72 footballs used in the game.
  • It’s the second highest day of food consumption after Thanksgiving.
  • The National Chicken Council predicts that 1.25 billion wings will be eaten.
  • Approximately 100 million pounds of guacamole will get consumed.
  • The average number of people attending a Super Bowl party is 17.
