Super Bowl 50 is an upcoming American football game that will determine the champion of the National Football League(NFL) for the 2015 season. The game will be held on February 7, 2016 at Levi’s Stadium inSanta Clara, California, between the National Football Conference (NFC) champion Carolina Panthers and the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Denver Broncos.

The Panthers finished the regular season with a 15–1 record, defeating the Arizona Cardinals 49–15 in the NFC Championship Game and advancing to their second Super Bowl appearance since the founding of the franchise in 1995. The Broncos finished the regular season with a 12–4 record, and denied the New England Patriots a chance to defend their title from Super Bowl XLIX by defeating them 20–18 in the AFC Championship Game, and joined the Patriots,Dallas Cowboys, and Pittsburgh Steelers as one of four teams that have made eight appearances in the Super Bowl.

The game is the 50th edition of the Super Bowl, first played in 1967 in anticipation of the1970 merger of the American Football Leagueand the NFL; the league emphasized the “golden anniversary” of the game throughout the season with various gold-themed initiatives (including the adoption of gold-tinted logos across all NFL properties), as well as temporarily suspending the tradition of naming each Super Bowl game with Roman numerals (under which the game would have been known as “Super Bowl L”), so that the logo could prominently feature the Arabic numerals of 50.[8][9] In addition to the Vince Lombardi Trophy, the winner of Super Bowl 50 will also receive a special 18-karat gold-plated “50” trophy.
