Super Bowl 50 will be played at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, but New Yorkers can use the Empire State Building as a scoreboard.

The lights atop the building will change when the Denver Broncos or Carolina Panthers put points on the board, according to the Associated Press (via the New York Daily News).

When the game kicks off, both teams' colors will be displayed via the lights. And it won't be hard to tell which team won.

"After the game, the building will sparkle in the winning team's colors for one hour," according to the AP. "It will remain lit for the Super Bowl champion until sunrise."
