Answering Twitter Questions on New Stadium’s Seating, Tours, Ticketing

Thursday, March 13, 2014

The first professional sporting event at Levi’s® Stadium is less than five months 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 first edition of Learning Levi’s®, we tackle queries on seating, tours and tickets. 

We start off with an easy one – Levi’s will hold 68,500, or about 1,400 less than Candlestick Park’s capacity. The new stadium can – and will – be expanded for events, such as Super Bowl L.

In a word, grass. In a few more: It’s currently growing at West Coast Turf in Livingston, Calif and will be cut into strips 42 inches wide and brought via refrigerated trucks to Levi’s® in April. To learn more, read this.

All fans, season ticket-holders or not, can book a Preview Center Experience here.

The short answer is, “Yes.” The longer answer is that the 49ers are still working on summer planning. Stay tuned.

Stadium Builders License owners will be welcomed with open arms at the 49ers first preseason home game. SBL holders can also attend the Aug. 2 San Jose Earthquakes games.

Stay tuned to for the single-game on-sale announcement, but you will be able to purchase tickets to the Aug. 2 Earthquakes-Seattle Sounders FC soccer game on Friday, March 14 at 10 a.m. PT via Ticketmaster. Our Q&A with San Jose midfielder Jordan Stewart should pump you up.

The gold circle of grass the 49ers highlighted to commemorate “The Catch” as the Candlestick Park finale will in fact be going to Levi’s. It and many other artifacts from over the decades will be showcased in the 49ers Museum Presented by Sony, which opens to the public on Aug. 2.

The answer to your question is, “Now,” and the answer can be found here.

Yes, the 49ers will be continuing the “My 1st 49ers” tradition on Sunday’s at Levi’s.
