1. Beautiful
2. It's exterior design is a result of it's intended function.
3. It will blow the Cardinal stadium out of the water in terms of gameday experience.

You sited Gillette stadium as something you liked. Why is it so much better?

I didn't cite Gillette Stadium as one that I liked - was refuting another poster who claimed it lacked distinctiveness. It is, in fact, on the blander end of the newer stadiums.

What excactly, in your opinion, is beautiful about the proposed 49ers design? (Other than it looks like it will actually be built?) It is just a bowl of seats with a Marriott Hotel on one side.

The Cards stadium might be ugly on the outside, but if your argument is that the gameday fan experience is most important then this stadium should be a favorite of yours.

Sitting in a giant tin can of recycled air is NOT my idea of a great gameday experience.



Modern. Pefectly suited for it's use and location. Open. Steel and Glass. Not ornamental. Innovative. Green.

Now, what is YOUR example of a beautiful stadium?

Don't go and stay at home. I'll take your ticket.

That is what I am saying... When we were the greatest franchise on the planet we played in one of the worst stadiums on the planet. All I am saying is better late then never. I dont need a "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" stadium. I want a new stadium that reps the area and the team. Clean, sophisticated and the true look meaning of wut the future holds. Feel free to pass your tickets my way and maybe they can do something closed circuit at the stick for you guys who wanna stay there....

It's not symmetrical.

If two sides were identical to each other, I think more people will like it.

Sure - just take whatever this ownership gives you. With that attitude, you are likely happy with the product on the field the past few years as well, no?

I think the stadium could have been much better, has nothing to do with my pride or love of the 49ers.

I am sure if you personally want to give the team an additional 500 million dollars or so ,then they would consider making the stadium more to your liking .
In California ,with the huge costs of everything,it will be a great feat for Jed to finally ram this thing through as it is. The team is financing at least 800 million by themselves. I doubt any other ownership would take that much of the load for a new stadium,especially when other owners get sweetheart deals and practically free stadiums built for them by cities.
Get your facts straight and stop acting like the Yorks should completely bankrupt themselves in order to make you happy about the design of their and Santa Clara's football stadium.

It looks good.

How will it be for accentuating crowd noise? We don't want Kurt Warner et al hearing themselves think before we put opposing glamour boys on their keisters!

what you guys don't understand is that although it's not a gorgeous new stadium like in AZ or Dallas, it's still better than half the stadiums in the NFL, out here in Denver, Invesco is nothing to gaze at, our new stadium looks awesome compared to 80% of the other NFL stadiums, relax

The biggest part of the stadium is . . . . us! (if we can afford tickets). If we be texting, chatting, cell phoning, white-wine-and-cheesing, etc., we be a lame 12th man!

Of course its bigger than the stick! The stick was built over 30 years ago!!! What a bad comparison. I wanna know if its bigger than Dallas, NYs, AZ, Indys, Denver....Etc. I doubt it, especially now that they moved it to the smaller parking lot of Great America.

Why did it become a mine's bigger than yours argument.

Im never going to see a denver fan and say "hey my stadiums way better than yours."

I swear it seems like some people want a dome

It's big enough for the League to schedule SB's at Santa Clara in the regular rotation !!!

Well, if the yard markers on the football field are close to scale then the main concourse is about 50 yards wide . . . it looks like about 60' between the back of the stands front of the concession/bathroom buildings. Regardless of the dimensions of the other stadiums that's a lot of space.

wait until it's built

companies will be begging to partner with the Niners so that they can provide the best possible gameday experience for the fans

when everything has fallen into place, it will be awesome.

you watch.

And they say the thing that makes THIS stadium design unique is that all the seats are closer to the action and they all have good lines of sight. Something about having the upper decks slanted at a slightly steeper angle and some other aspects of the design.
If that is true then maybe the fan noise will be louder ,since they are closer to the field of play? That would be a sweet byproduct of the better seating !

saw this on 49ers.com.
it looks pretty sick im not gonna lie.

i'd like to know this : if there going to build the stadium on that parking lot, they have to tear down their headquarters (look at the video). So why exactly are they expending it right now ??? Sounds pretty suspect to me. Is this well planned or is this just a fun video to make us think the project is ready on paper (while it's not in fact) ?
Any suggestions from you guys ?

They are not supposed to have to do anything to their headquarters because of the new stadium,it is across the street. You are the first one I have heard to say such a thing.
