Levi's Stadium pics and info...

I think that's how's it's going to be. The TV booths and radio stuff will be in the tower and the home team are usually on the side of the broadcast stuff.

Rainbird sprinklers I suppose? Used to have those on our front lawn growing up. Worst football injury ever was falling on a rainbird not to mention tripping on them all the time

I'm pretty sure they aren't going to use the same sprinklers on this billion dollar stadium as you had on your front lawn as a kid.

No, they aren't the same as your front lawn...and Toro is the brand going in. Just like AT&T has

Niners will be on the side next to the broadcasting and suite towers and the opposing team will be on the east deck. Harbaugh specifically requested this so our guys will be in the shady area while the other team is in the hot sun (with all the fans screaming down their necks).

How hot does it get in Santa Clara in the fall?

For those of you still wondering about the loudness of Levi's Stadium, this piece should answer all your nagging questions:

The biggest revelation, however, will occur at kickoff time: Even though Levi's Stadium will have about 1,000 fewer seats than Candlestick, it will be much louder. During a construction tour earlier this year, project co-director Robert Rayborn pointed out something to me that I had not even considered.

"It's going to be really loud in here," said Rayborn, who works for Turner/Devcon construction. "Really loud. Really, really loud."

Then he explained why, as we stood in the lower bowl. The stadium's design is different from most football stadiums.

The vast majority of luxury boxes are located in an eight-level tower--essentially, a large 12-story building--on the west side of the field. That means two things:

One, there are no upper decks on the west side, just the lower bowl and the tower.

And two, the east side upper decks can be closer to the ground--because it does not sit atop multiple levels of luxury boxes on that side of the field.

Perhaps that's a bit too architectural-geeky. But the practical ramifaction is this: All of those fans on the east side of the stadium (who are closer to the field than at Candlestick) will scream noise toward the field and the west side of the stadium. And when that noise hits the large flat side of the tower on the west side of the stadium, the noise will immediately bounce right back toward the field.

Too bad this article came out. I was really looking forward to saying "I told you so" to all those who said it would be a library.

The weather is as close to ideal as you could want in that area.

So, they'll be warm in the sun while we're freezing in the shade.

Well that's great to know! For a moment I was worried that all of the industrial meetings taking place at our games would minimize homefield advantage.

I so hope this is true. I would love it to be just like any team going to Seattle, for them to come to our house.

A few of us already had that theory

Plus the new stadium will have the largest amount of lower bowl seats in the NFL. Usually the majority of seats are 2nd or 3rd deck, but our lower level, right on top of the field, will have the majority of the seating.

so we get a fancy cheater stadium like seattle? im down


What I would like to know is where is the visiting team going to be placed? From all intents and purpose it would be best to place them on the deck side while the niners are placed on the tower/luxury box side.

I think the tunnel to the 49ers locker room goes through a club like the one in Dallas, center field on the tower side.

No, IIRC, both teams will enter from the tunnel on the east side (visitors side).

Actually I read the 49ers locker room is on the east side and they'll enter and exit the field on the east but their sideline will be the west side.

The visiting locker room is on the west side as I recall.

That wouldn't make sense, with all the renderings of the players walking through the high priced sections as stated just above

They might enter from the east in the very beginning , then stay on the west side until the game is over ?

Lol that would be a very Harbaugh thing to do

Enter from the East Locker Room - a.k.a. the 49ers practice facility lol, and then psych the other team out by going across the way and soaking in the shade
I don't know if it's just me but the Stadium looks bad ass at night

There are clubs and "high priced areas" on both sides of the field. The home locker room is on the east side. I'm sure of that. The 49ers inflatable helmet will be on the east side near the 50 and that's where the team will enter the field. They'll run out from there and stand on the west sideline.

I had already read this somewhere and it was confirmed when I was on the stadium tour.
