Levi’s Stadium will not host fans for 49ers-Eagles, will serve as a voting center for November election

Sep 29, 2020 at 10:47 AM--


This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, but Levi's Stadium will not host fans for Sunday's game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles, according to ESPN.

The stadium didn't host fans for the team's season opener against the Arizona Cardinals on September 13 due to continued concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. That didn't rule out fans attending future games, though.

The 49ers will continue to have a dialogue with state and Santa Clara County officials, and in accordance with public health guidelines, to determine when fans can return to Levi's Stadium.


The 49ers begin a three-game home stint that starts with this weekend's game against the Eagles and is followed by matchups against the Miami Dolphins and Los Angeles Rams.

"We know that 2020 has already been extremely challenging, and we thank you for your patience as we navigate this pandemic together," the 49ers said via a statement in August.

The 49ers also announced that Levi's Stadium would become a voting center for the November 3 election as part of the organization's NFL Votes initiative to drive voter awareness and turnout.

"Through the support of each of the partners, Levi's Stadium will fill a need for another in-person voting center where any resident of Santa Clara County can vote in-person or deposit their ballot," wrote the 49ers in a statement. "The SAP Tower atrium within Levi's Stadium will be open for early voting beginning on October 31st (9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.) and through Election Day on November 3rd (7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.). Featuring free parking at the Great America parking lot adjacent to the stadium, Levi's Stadium previously served as a voting center for the California primary in March. Levi's Stadium will be one of 100 voting centers in Santa Clara County, along with 98 drop box locations."

The San Francisco 49ers have yet to host any fans at Levi's Stadium this season, even as teams in other states have started opening their gates to a limited number of game attendees. It looked like that might change soon when, on Tuesday, California issued new COVID-19 health and safety guidelines that would have allowed up to 13,000 fans at Levi's Stadium for future home games. Santa Clara County quickly declared that won't be happening. "Audiences at professional sporting events will not be allowed anytime soon in Santa Clara County, and theme parks will not resume operation," the Santa Clara County Public Health Department told the San Francisco

FS1 host says Matt Ryan-to-49ers is an 'obvious' fit

With the current state of the Atlanta Falcons, the struggles of the San Francisco 49ers, and the criticisms of Jimmy Garoppolo, the chatter linking head coach Kyle Shanahan to his former quarterback, Matt Ryan, was inevitable. One FS1 analyst, Nick Wright of First Things First, feels a reunion between Shanahan and Ryan makes obvious sense. "I would be gobsmacked ... if he's traded before the deadline," Wright said. "But whether it's before the deadline or in the offseason, there's one obvious place for Matt Ryan, and it's San Francisco. We know they don't like their quarterback, [Ryan] won an MVP with Kyle Shanahan, he knows the system, and San Francisco can get off Jimmy G's contract at the end of this year, easily. "If you're the rest of
