The 49ers played at Kezar Stadium from 1946, which was their inaugural season, through 1970 before moving to Candlestick Park and then eventually Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara in 2014. Caesar Stadium, which opened in 1925, is located in Golden Gate Park.

The 49ers stated the following on their website:

The San Francisco 49ers will begin the celebration of its 70th anniversary by returning to its roots at Kezar Stadium in San Francisco on Wednesday, August 10th, for a team practice and youth football exhibition. The team's first practice at Kezar Stadium since 2004 will be a signature event of this year's 49ers Training Camp presented by SAP.

"As we laid out our plans to celebrate 70 storied years of 49ers football, the idea of bringing the team back to its original home for a practice session in front of our great fans in the heart of San Francisco was the idea we found most exciting," said 49ers President Al Guido. "Returning to the team's roots at Kezar will make for a special day not only for our fans, but also the team."

In addition to the team's practice, there will be 49ers alumni in attendance to sign autographs, the Gold Rush and Sourdough Sam will be entertaining fans, there will be a DJ on hand, and numerous other activities for fans.

The team hopes to make practices at Kezar Stadium an annual event. Training camp kicks off at the end of July with veterans reporting on July 30. The team's first full-squad practice will take place the next day on July 31, as officially announced by the team.

The Rams were the home team, but you couldn't tell. That's because the crowd was dominated by 49ers fans, forcing the Rams to play in a hostile environment on their own turf.
