New York City’s famous Empire State Building will serve as a virtual scoreboard during Sunday’s Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.
The Empire State will light up in the colors of both teams to show the Chiefs on one side and the 49ers on the other.
Each time one of the teams scores, the entire tower will glow in the colors of the respective franchise for one minute before returning to the split pattern.
Once the game is over, the building will light up in the winner’s colors throughout the night.
The historic landmark was similarly illuminated for the Super Bowl between the Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles, when it turned on green and red lights.
The Empire State Building will once again be divided into two colors for the Super Bowl
It will probably be half red for the Kansas City Chiefs and half gold for the San Francisco 49ers.
Just like last year, the building will light up in the winning team’s color after the game is over.
Last season, the Empire State Building was also illuminated in bright green and white in honor of the Philadelphia Eagles following their NFC Championship victory.
The building’s social media account shared an image of the green and white lighting along with the caption ”Fly @Eagles Fly! We’ll wear green and white in honor of the Eagles’ NFC Championship victory.’
Local New York Giants fans ended up upset about the building honoring their rivals and called out account X for the post.
While the Empire State Building may shine bright red again if the Chiefs can hoist the Lombardi Trophy for a second straight season, at least Giants fans can take solace in knowing they won’t see any tributes to one of their division rivals. .
New York Jets fans can also be glad they don’t have to see any opposing colors, as both the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills were eliminated from the playoffs by the Chiefs.
