Super Bowl 50 By The Numbers

super bowl

This year the National Football League celebrates the golden anniversary of its biggest game – the big game – in our nation’s Golden City. And as an estimated one million fans descend upon the San Francisco Bay Area for Super Bowl 50, giving new meaning to the term “gold rush,” the game’s past and present prepare to collide. Not only is Super Bowl 50 a salute to West Coast football, underscoring the recent announcement that two franchises will be moving to the Los Angeles area with the first West Coast Super Bowl since 2002, but it also has the potential to mark a clear transfer of power from elder statesmen such as Broncos Quarterback Peyton Manning to the likes of his young and charismatic Panthers counterpart Cam Newton. In short, has “Omaha” fully given way to “dabbing”? Only time will tell which team winds up going to Disneyland, as they say, but we can certainly get you prepared for the action in the meantime. Below you’ll find an awesome infographic with our favorite factoids and tidbits about this one-of-a-kind 50th anniversary party, plus a Q&A with a panel of leading sports business experts. Enjoy the game!
