I'd say only Arrowhead, Lambeau & Soldier Field have better names than us. Candlestick is #1 but that's now over with

candlestick is a stupid name if you think about it


Exactly.

If no one ever heard the name "Candlestick", and then the stadium was named "Candlestick" stadium, people would be screaming about how gay it sounds.
Levi stadium is actually really cool if you compare it to most of the others like Darko said.

"Arrowhead" and "Soldier Field" are the only ones that sound cooler than ours in all honesty. "Lambeau" only sounds cool because you've heard it before. Pretty lame if you had never heard it before though.

I mean look at some of these:
Dorky: Lincoln financial, Heinz, Hubert H Humphrey
Lame: Sports Authority, University of Phoenix, M&T Bank
Boring: MetLife, Paul Brown, Sun Life, Bank of America

Reliant -- OK.
Ford -- OK.
Century Link -- OK.

Levi -- Not bad. Not "Arrowhead" or "Soldier Field", but not bad.
*** I really hope they call it "Levi" and not "Levi's".

Another bonus is that Levi isn't likely to get purchased anytime soon so we won't have a revolving door of names.

It's Levi's. Levi is a person's name. Levi's is a jeans company.

Actually Levi Strauss is the name of the company, not Levi's Strauss.

But it's not Levi Strauss Stadium. It's Levi's Stadium.

It's the off-season, bro. People complain about everything and have their panties in a bunch cuz' there is no game played. It's freaking hilarious, if you ask me.

Yes, they opted to name it after their most popular brand, not the company name itself.


Perhaps Levi Strauss Stadium came off a bit tedious.

Cool. I guess all of you are crying because it isnt as cool as "google" or something, but it is a solid brand that will be around and already pay a lot of money to advertising. No issues.

Continue with your crying.

This. I'm fairly confident in 20 yrs Levis will still be around.... Google, who knows?
Just for comparison......when the Cardinals were shopping around for naming rights here in Arizona, some of the contenders included Pink Taco, Dick's Sporting Goods, Swift Transportation and some others. Ultimately University of Phoenix purchased the rights to a stadium in Glendale....for 155 million over 20 years.





Bottomline, the 49ers did very well, and it could have been MUCH MUCH worse.

Also, it's got long ties with San Francisco going back to 1873......that's some major staying power for a regional entity.

more then likely people know the brand name Levis a little more then Levi Strauss being Levis is the common advertised name.

Levi Strauss sounds better than Levi's Strauss.
Levi Stadium sounds better than Levi's Stadium.

For now it's officially "Levi's Stadium". Which is awkward, because no one is going to pronounce "Levi's" *pause* "Stadium". When people say the name, it will sound like they are saying, "Levi Stadium", so why not just call it "Levi Stadium"?

^^^ what's with the toilet paper backdrop?

because levi is just someones name where as Levis is a trademarked brand name owned by Levi Strauss Company.
