For 49ers fans reading @espn_nfcwest's Tweet about @gideonyu's co-ownership... Yu and Mark Wan are 1% investors.

My understanding is that @gideonyu has the option to buy a larger % at some point, but not more than 5%. He's the key exec for the stadium.
Now people can complain about just the Yorks anymore. Thank you God.

Its more popular in Europe. But I doooooooont think he's European. Maybe that's his street name
Yeah, but does he still have to buy a SBL to get seats into the stadium?
Too bad he cant get rid of Alex Smith
