why did they stack all the suites like that ?
According to the press release, doing so allowed them to build the largest lower bowl for a stadium in the NFL. 2/3 of the seating will be in the lower section. Everything about this stadium is about funtionality rather than aesthetics/looks.
Also, fans will access to different angles on replays from their [mobile device] app will allow you to watch different replays, see different game feeds, listen to the broadcast of what's going on.
When you're looking at ordering a hot dog, a beer, a soda, being able to do that from your smartphone.
Even something simple as the placiement of concession stands, it will be the oppsite of how they do it now, you can be in line but, but turn around and keep your eye on the game, unless the people behind you are taller than you.
Everything is for the fans. Both average and rich, in fact the luxury boxes will be so nice that the niners can charge big bucks, this in turn will allow the niners to be even more creative in player contract offerings.
Plus supposedly the stadium will be able to run off on the solar lighting, meaning not using as much private power source.
Because of the wi-fi, you can probably get access to other games that you want to keep tabs on too.
It'll be nice and open. Rest rooms will be better to they say. Seats are supposed to be more comfortable to.
The bad thing is that the stadium's design does not supposedlylend itself to increasing/amplifying the noise level. Although having more fans close to the field because of the larger lower bowl, will help make it loud, the fans in thend are the key to making it hostile.
The capacity for the stadium is actually smaller for the niner games than candlestick, but when it comes to superbowls and when needed it will be bigger 72 or maybe 75K I think it was.
It is about making the game enjoyable for those in attendance, which in the end would more important if I was a ticket holder, than having a stadium that simply looked impressive.
