No team has played the Super Bowl in their home stadium.

Reporters recently got a look inside Lucas Oil Stadium, where workers are preparing the home of the Indianapolis Colts to host one of the most-watched sporting events in the world.

The media tour showed the huge transformation going on inside the stadium.

Most notable is the signage - or lack thereof.

"All the Indianapolis Colts signage is gone and it's been replaced by Super Bowl signage and that's what people are coming from all over the world to see," said Frank Supovitz, NFL senior vice president.

The rigging is in place for Madonna's half-time show and construction is underway on the NBC anchor desk.

Crews have added 254 seats in the Horseshoe Pavilion.

"The capacity for the stadium will be announced on game night. There's about 68,000. It's in that general neighborhood because we also count all the standing room in the suites; those 254 seats we've added in the north end zone," said Supovitz.

The Patriots will use the Colts' locker room at the stadium, and all Colts signage will be covered up - along with everything else in the stadium that isn't Super Bowl-related or sponsored.
