Empire State Building will light up in colors of Super Bowl teams

The Super Bowl isn’t in the New York area like it was two years ago, but the Empire State Building will still honor the big game.

According to The New York Daily News via Bleacher Report, the building will light up in the colors of the team that scores after every scoring play. After the game, the building will display the colors of the Super Bowl winner until the morning.

The Empire State Building regularly lights up in different colors corresponding to certain occasions, such as red and green for Christmas and red, white and blue for Independence Day. Next up on Monday is red and gold in honor of the Chinese New Year.

In the days leading up to Super Bowl XLVIII two years ago, the Empire State Building lit up in the colors of both the Broncos and Seahawks (pictured).

If Super Bowl 50 goes anything like that game, there might not be a whole lot of orange tonight on the New York City skyline.
