In celebration of Super Bowl 50, which will be played on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2016 at Levi’s Stadium, the first of 10 Bay Area 50’s will be installed outside San Francisco’s City Hall on Saturday, Dec. 19, kicking off the official 50-day countdown to The Big Game The Super Bowl.

Each weighing 1,600 lbs., the Bay Area 50’s stand six-feet tall and eight-feet wide. From Super Bowl rings and tickets to footballs and confetti, all 10 Bay Area 50’s incorporate different design elements representing Super Bowl history.

The Bay Area 50’s are solar powered and have lights that will illuminate the front at night.

The first “50” will be installed outside City Hall starting at 5am on December 19, 2015 with an expected completion time of 9am.  All 10 Bay Area 50’s are tentatively scheduled to be installed at various iconic locations throughout the San Francisco Bay Area by mid-January.

In addition to the first Bay Area 50 installation, the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee is marking the final 50-day countdown with the lighting of a gold 50 on the San Francisco Ferry Building, and displaying the 50-day countdown on the videoboard at Levi’s Stadium, both at 5 p.m. PT.
