49ers season tickets begin arriving ... with no frills

Jul 12, 2009 at 2:16 AM--


Season ticket holders have started receiving their tickets for the upcoming season. Many are reporting that, unlike previous years where tickets would arrive in very nice 49ers themed packaging, their packages only included the tickets themselves with no special frills for those willing to pay the extra cost and commit to the entire year.

In previous years, tickets were accompanied by extras such as DVD's, reading material, stickers, and more. They were also packaged in very nice 49ers themed boxes. It is interesting that no such packaging accompanied this year's batch given the big changes in San Francisco with a new coach and new uniforms.

One 49erswebzone.com member, a season ticket holder for years who spent over $5,000 this year in tickets, states that the tickets did not come in any box and goes on to say "3 of the tickets have an ad on them, Bud Light, Breathe Right and Samsung. They came Priority Mail, USPS. Mine were crammed in my mail box and some of my tickets are bent ... no DVD no stickers no nothing."

Not immune to the horrible economy, the NFL and certain NFL organizations have been looking to cut back on costs. While not officially blamed on the economy, the 49ers have made such moves as telling team employees to take over a week off in early July and reducing the number of open Training Camp practices to 4 this season. Last year, there were 10 sessions open to the public.

One has to wonder what other cost-cutting moves the team will make this season.

It was a strange week for the San Francisco 49ers, who had to work through an unusual schedule that saw them arrive home from their Monday night game in Mexico City in the early morning hours on Tuesday, followed by Thanksgiving on Thursday.

By JD Salazar

This 2022 iteration of the 49ers is endlessly fascinating to watch. One of the best teams in football one week, getting humiliated the next. Back to the future, forward with the past. But as turbulent and ramshackle as it's been, the 49ers are morphing into a team ready to dominate in the playoffs, just as head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have always believed. Here are 5 observations from yesterday's win over the Saints. 1. The Scoreless Streak Extends to 4… In the second half of the past 4 games, the 49ers haven't allowed a point. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. The Rams, Chargers, Cardinals, and now Saints have all failed to crack the scoreboard once after halftime. While only this last contest has been a pure shutout, that mark remains

This past week, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, making his debut on Sunday in a 17-16 win over the Indianapolis Colts. He told Pro Football Talk that he picked the Eagles because he sought another championship. Suh had another option, though, admitting that he could have signed with the San Francisco 49ers. "Suh told PFT by phone after Sunday's 17-16 win over the Colts in his debut with the Eagles that his decision came down to Philadelphia and San Francisco," wrote Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. "Suh said that he was attracted to the 49ers because of the presence of defensive line coach Kris
