Field Design For Super Bowl LVII Between Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles Revealed
With just four days until kickoff, the field design for Super Bowl LVII between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles has been revealed.
Just like it was for 43 of the first 56 Super Bowls – and every year since Super Bowl XXXVIII – the NFL shield is prominently displayed at the 50-yard line at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., home of the Arizona Cardinals.
The logo for Super Bowl LVII, which combines the Lombardi Trophy and Roman numerals with the state’s desert features and flag in a turquoise, purple and red color scheme, has been placed at the 25-yard lines.
As the designated home team, the Eagles will occupy the west sideline while the Chiefs will be on the east sideline. Philadelphia’s sideline is midnight green and Kansas City’s is yellow, with both featuring their primary marks.
The Eagles’ end zone, which is on the south side of the stadium, features the same logo along with their new wordmark in white, while the Chiefs’ end zone follows the same design, albeit with a red wordmark.
The field isn’t complete, of course, as the sidelines and out-of-bounds area behind the end zones still need to be painted white. Presumably, the latter will also include the “End Racism” and “It Takes All Of Us” stencils.
Philadelphia had a gray end zone in its loss to the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl XV, as well as a midnight green end zone in its loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXIX and win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
The last two featured the Eagles’ previous wordmark, which was replaced last summer, with either a profile of their helmet and the NFC logo (Super Bowl XXXIX) or their primary logo (Super Bowl LII).
The Chiefs, meanwhile, had a yellow end zone in all four previous Super Bowl appearances, including a loss to the Green Bay Packers in the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game and win over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV.
The design for this weekend’s game, which kicks off at 6:30 p.m. on FOX, is the exact same as their last two appearances, including a win over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV and loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV.
