Answering Twitter Questions on New Stadium’s Seating, Tours, Ticketing
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.
@49ers How many people will it hold? #WhosGotItBetterThanUs?

@49ers I know seating capacity has increased. Any updates?
— william Collins (@mrbill195) February 26, 2014
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.
@49ers turf or grass?
— Austin (@austintrapper22) February 26, 2014
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.
