LEARNING LEVI’S® STADIUM: Parking, Fanwalk, and Technology
The first professional sporting event at Levi’s® Stadium is less than two weeks away. With the countdown clock ticking, we thought it wise to answer some of your Twitter questions. After all, one must know the high-tech, state-of-the-art building in order to take advantage of its many capabilities. In this fourth edition of Learning Levi’s®, we tackle queries on the Aug. 2 MLS game, the bricks along Fanwalk and the building’s technology.
To your questions…

The first step toward snagging standing room only tickets is signing up for the San Francisco 49ers loyalty program, Faithful49 presented by Esurnace. Members of this program will have exclusive access to the 1,500 SRO “seats,” which will be sold during a “one-time” on-sale event before the 49ers first home preseason game.

How well will wi-fi and cell phone service work in Levi’s? #LearningLevis

The app, which will be free to download for all major smartphones and tablets, is nearing its launch date, and we at LevisStadium.com will be the first to reveal it to you in all of its glory. As far as the stadium’s in-house WiFi and cell phone service system, expect the best. As many have said, Levi’s® Stadium really reflects the Silicon Valley, so expect high-speed communication inside the building.

@LevisStadium What is the parking situation for the soccer game on Aug 1st? I’m a season ticket holder.

Los Angeles-based architectural firm HNTB worked with the Santa Clara Stadium Authority and the 49ers to settle on a design that emphasized technology and sustainability. According to HNTB, the design “is inspired by the layout of a roman amphitheater with a five-story tower containing suites, clubs, press box and an accessible green roof as the proscenium.” The powers that be also sought wide concourses and two expansive, open-air plazas to allow fans space to move around and enjoy the stadium’s surroundings.

The Fanwalk, which is better explained here, is indeed complete, although bricks are still for sale. If you have already purchased a brick, its location will be emailed to you in early August, before the 49ers first home preseason game.

We’re working on getting you an exact number, but expect more than 40 local craft beers (and Anheuser-Busch beverages) to be available at Centerplate’s Tap Room, which is located on the stadium’s east side, on the 300 level and at the 50-yard line — and there will be 22 bartenders there to serve you.
