49ers seek $120 million from NFL for Levi's Stadium upgrades amid Super Bowl bid

Levi's Stadium is slated to host 2026 World Cup events. In addition, the San Francisco 49ers hope their home venue can host a second NFL title game—Super Bowl 60. That would come a decade after Levi's Stadium last hosted the big game, Super Bowl 50. The NFL is expected to announce the sites for Super Bowl 60 and 61 in May. 49ers CEO Jed York hopes to spruce up Levi's Stadium before either of those events by securing $120 million from the NFL's stadium fund. "Generally, those are approved, and they go through committees, so I feel fairly comfortable that will be approved," York said Tuesday at the NFL owners' meetings in Arizona.

Once again, the San Francisco 49ers find themselves entrenched in offseason quarterback drama. Brock Purdy, the rookie signal-caller who took the NFL by storm this past season, is recovering from surgery on the torn ligament in his elbow. Unfortunately, that means likely missing time until September, putting his Week 1 availability into question. The 49ers' former No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance, is returning from a season-ending ankle injury. He still has only four starts after two seasons under his belt, making it impossible to gauge his potential just yet. San Francisco signed Sam Darnold, who has started 55 career games but only won 38 percent of those matchups. Even after watching several players walk away in free agency, the 49ers remain one of
