Levi's Stadium pics and info...

Do you guys know why the niners didn't get multiple stadium designs?

It seemed like HKS presented them with just one design an they went with that :/

"The Vikings will host the Steelers in the second game in London in 2013.
San Francisco (in their new stadium) and South Florida are finalists for Super Bowl 50 -- aka Super Bowl L -- and those two, plus Houston, finalists for Super Bowl 51"

So really good shot we are hosting Super Bowl 50 or 51.

It goes SB 47 this year in New Orleans, SB 48 in the New York's new stadium for 2013 season, SB 49 in Arizona for 2014 season. Of course all the SBs will be played Feb of the next year so 47 is in Feb 2013, 48 is Feb 2014, 49 is Feb 2015. If we win SB 50 which would be a huge huge deal it would be Feb 2016 (2015 season). Or SB 51 which would be the 2016 Season played Feb 2017. So earliest we can get it is this season plus 2 more. But tha'ts ok because it would only be the stadium's 2nd seson if we got #50. It won't be open until the year of SB 49 but that was already decide for Arizona so 50 would be our 1st shot.

My only question though I looked it up and is about 60-65 the average weather for February. Is that about right... what is the night and day average? We won't have a roof... is it a little bit cold for a game? I mean not to the average fan or people from Wisconsin but what about all these big wig? It would be at night by half time although I guess there would be a lot of body heat plus the stadium lights.

I cant imagine with Gideon Yu and Jed York leading the way that we would lose any bid for a super bowl. Yu seems like a financial heavyweight with massive connections and York is very business savvy.

I think if they were presented with multiple designs, they certainly wouldn't want that knowledge to be available to the public. Nothing good could come out of it for the 49ers franchise. Most people would complain that they didn't pick the "best" design, and boo-hoo "if only" they picked their favorite design everything would have been perfect.

Yeah I am no architect or anything but I feel like you dont spend, what, almost 40 million just to design something and only have one design to show for it

Does anyone know what rights season ticket holders have to superbowl tickets for the game when its in your home stadium? Is there some sort of lottery, or would we just be on our own?

We aren't guaranteed tickets to the Super Bowl or Olympics. Everything else we have rights on. I believe there's a lottery for the season ticket holders of all teams that play in the Super Bowl.

SBL owners will be in a very limited lottery for SB tickets too.

I heard the 80K seats get a shot at SB, 30K and 20K tix are in a lottery and I've heard nothing about the rest.

That is why I can't wait for the one in NY. It could be played in the rain or snow.
