49ers-Packers NFC Championship Game sets attendance record for Levi’s Stadium

Jan 20, 2020 at 12:38 PM--

It was the biggest San Francisco 49ers game in the history of Levi's Stadium, and the fans showed up. Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers set a new record for attendance, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic.

Sunday's attendance added up to 72,211 excited fans who filled Levi's Stadium to watch the 49ers knock off the Packers 37-20 and advance to Super Bowl LIV. The attendance total broke a record that stood for eight ... days. Yes, it broke a record set the previous weekend when the 49ers hosted the Minnesota Vikings in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

"I've played the Packers a number of times," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after the game, "and I don't care where you play the Packers, there's always a ton of Green Bay fans in the stadium. And out of all the times I've ever played the Packers in any stadium in my life, I did not see green out there, and that's pretty hard to do.

"So, I love it here. I love Levi's and hoping our fans follow us to Miami."

While the 72,211 fans in attendance set a record for the largest crowd to watch a 49ers game, it ranks fifth all-time in Levi's Stadium history.

San Francisco 49ers fans have criticized NFL Network analyst Adam Rank since he made his three-win prediction for the Bay Area team in 2019. That 49ers squad went on to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. Rank has not predicted such a dire outcome for the 49ers since then. He has projected the team's win total for the 2022 season. After predicting three wins in 2019, Rank predicted 12 wins in 2020 and 14 in 2021. What does the crystal ball say about San Francisco for the upcoming season? Rank predicts the 49ers will finish with a 9-8 record. There are more question marks for head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad this season compared to the last two. While the interior offensive line situation is enough to make any fan nervous, there is no bigger

The San Francisco 49ers have come close to hoisting the franchise's sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy. They fell just short during the 2012 season, losing 34-31 to the Baltimore Ravens. Seven years later, they fell short again, collapsing in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl and watching as the Kansas City Chiefs celebrated a championship. Last season, the 49ers were a play or two away from returning to sports' biggest stage, falling to the eventual Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams in the NFC title game. San Francisco can't get over the hump. On Monday, the Bay Area celebrated the Golden State Warriors' seventh championship as thousands of fans swarmed Market Street for the parade. It's an inspiring sight for the championship-hungry 49ers. "Yeah,
