Wrong. There is no such agreement. They will be the SF 49ers no matter what.
San Francisco Statute 866-b, in the agreement signed between the 49ers and City, dictates that if the 49ers reside or entertain in SF for longer than 25 years then the 49ers must buy out of city to continue using the SF name, letters or likeness.
No agreement has been made thanks in part to Dianne Feinsteins actions ultimately delaying the process for at least a year.
