SANTA CLARA, Calif. (WIVB) — Levi’s Stadium, the venue for Super Bowl 50, could have appeared a bit biased if a painting change was not made after a Monday mix-up.
The grounds crew at the stadium accidentally painted two Denver Broncos end zones, leaving the appearance of no end zone for their competitors, the Carolina Panthers.
The crew had painted a Broncos end zone on the visitor side when it should have gone on the home side, due to the Broncos being the home team, according to CBS photographer James Martin.
In the picture at the top, the end zone in the upper portion can be seen faintly bearing a Broncos logo while the bottom portion can be seen with a clear one.
The mistake was fixed soon after, as the Panthers were painted a proper end zone that was finished on Thursday.
