LEVI’S® STADIUM TO HOST INAUGURAL YAHOO SPORTS FANTASY FOOTBALL DRAFT PARTY
Registration is open for the inaugural Yahoo Fantasy Football Draft Experience set to take place at Levi’s® Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 22nd. Yahoo, the official fantasy football partner of the San Francisco 49ers and Levi’s® Stadium will give fans the opportunity to gather their league to stage their fantasy football drafts from the comfort of a private luxury suite in Levi’s® Stadium’s SAP Tower.
“With the luxury amenities of Levi’s Stadium and the fantasy expertise of Yahoo Sports, there couldn’t be a more natural place to host the Bay Area’s pre-eminent fantasy football draft event of the year,” said 49ers Chief Revenue Officer Ethan Casson. “Yahoo Sports is an industry leader in the fantasy football space and the innovations they brought to Levi’s Stadium enabled us to open as the most fantasy sports friendly venue in the world.”
Taking place the day before the 49ers host the Dallas Cowboys in the first preseason game of the year at Levi’s® Stadium, the event will begin at 5:00 p.m. on Aug. 22nd with a VIP welcome reception in the Yahoo Fantasy Football Lounge. While enjoying complimentary food and beverages in the stadium’s innovative fantasy football nerve center while overlooking the playing field, guests will be able to discuss their fantasy football draft strategies with 49ers Alumni, Yahoo Fantasy draft experts and their fellow fantasy football general managers.
From 6:00-9:00 p.m. each group will be able to stage their league’s draft from the comfort of their own private suite overlooking the playing field. Suite packages are $950 per group and include in-suite pizza, wings and a fully-stocked refrigerator of Bud Light. The event package also includes high-speed Wi-Fi access, an official Yahoo Sports NFL Fantasy Draft Kit, a personalized league photo taken with the Bud Light ambassadors, and a chance to win four (4) tickets from the 49ers for their home opener against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday, September 14 (must be present for eligibility).
