good!

theres no point in putting the fans further away just because we may or may not host a world cup match in the next 50 years.

Agreed. This stadium is a true tribute to football first and foremost. Much rather it be designed to bring the fans as close as possible to ensure almost everyone has a good seat, is up close to the action and that the Bay Area will be in contention to host more Super Bowls for years to come.

Good find, but I actually think that is false. An nfl field is 53 yards wide. Add in the sideline width, plus the width of the tarps on both sides and there would be plenty of area needed for the minimum width of a FIFA international field, which is 70 yards. I'm gonna try and do some research on this to see what I can find, other than this article.


From wiki:

The stadium is also designed to meet the FIFA field geometry requirements for international soccer, which will allow it to host international friendly matches and major tournaments such as the FIFA World Cup.


From the HNTB site:


When completed in 2014 as a design-build project, it will be more than just a football facility. It has been designed as an expandable “outdoor entertainment venue,” created with a variety of experiences in mind, including Major League Soccer and World Cup events.

I would argue it's a tribute to technology first and foremost. In what way is it uniquely designed specifically for football, other than it was built for the 49ers?

Is there a bar/lounge up on that green rooftop? That's what the original mock ups showed.

I'm just posting what I found. lol Seems we have barrows saying it's too narrow (the only time I've ever heard that), and the builders of the stadium saying otherwise. Somebody should tweet him and ask him where he got that info.


The World Cup was in the bay area before. I was at the USA/Brazil game at Stanford in 94. Since then they remodeled Stanford and it's way too small now. Seems odd the 49ers would build Levi's just a tad too small to be eligible to host the biggest sporting event in the world.

Agreed...and especially since Santa Clara County has said from the very beginning that this stadium will be used for a LOT of other events as well. It will make sense to make it big enough to host soccer games.
