(NFL/CNN) – The NFL has released the new logo for Super Bowl 50 – notice something missing?

Yes, there are no Roman numerals.

The NFL decided to stick with the standard Arabic numerals for 50, rather than the Roman numeral L, in order to celebrate the 50th year of the game.

Super Bowl 50 will be played at Levi's Stadium, the new home of the San Francisco 49ers, on Feb. 7, 2016.

The league has been using Roman numerals since 1971, but they are not disappearing for good. The NFL says they will return for the 2017 game, Super Bowl LI.
