Super Bowl 50
For the celebration of Super Bowl 50, NFL is using standard Arabic numbers, not Roman numerals. According to San Jose Mercury News, the letter “L” (the Roman numeral for 50) has many negative connotations (L = Loser, 3 quarters of the asymmetrical letter L is negative space) and provides design challenges.
Super Bowl 50 was played Sunday, February 7, 2016 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara (California).

It’s actually not even the 50th Super Bowl! The first 2 NFL championship games used the title of “AFL-NFL World Championship Game” so the 50th “Super Bowl” would in fact be the one held in 2018.
