NFL Ditches Roman Numerals for Super Bowl 50

Super Bowl 50

(CNN) – This season’s Super Bowl logo will look very different from its predecessors as the NFL ditches the Roman numerals in favor of standard Arabic numerals.

The new logo will read: Super Bowl 50.

The decision to drop the traditional Roman numerals was described by the NFL as a way to “elevate and celebrate the historic” 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl.

Additionally, the Roman numeral for 50 is “L,” which would have made the logo: Super Bowl L.

While the league is busy promoting the new logo and the anniversary, players don’t seem fazed by the change.
