Season ticket holders receive scarves amid heat complaints about Levi’s Stadium

Jul 29, 2016 at 10:53 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers may not send out physical tickets anymore, but those that pay to receive them are still being sent out a small bonus. When physical tickets were sent out, the 49ers would typically include a gift with packages. Celebrating the 49ers' 70th anniversary season, the team has mailed out a set of scarves contained inside two canisters, per Ryan Sakamoto of Niner Fans.



It is ironic – and somewhat humorous – that the team would send out scarves as the free gift. Fan complaints regarding the heat at Levi's Stadium have been growing in number. "With the majority of the 68,500 seats in Levi's facing the sun, fans have voiced their objection to the design," said Chris Biderman of Niners Wire. "It simply hasn't been comfortable, which likely plays a role in there being many empty seats in the third quarter of games while patrons seek refuge in cooler areas of the $1.3-billion venue."

While fans often had to deal with chilling winds late in games at Candlestick Park, anyone that has been to a game at Levi's Stadium will likely confirm that it can get hot there during an afternoon matchup. Perhaps not as bad as numerous other professional and college stadiums across the country, but warm nonetheless.

Fan reaction to the heat during the stadium's early weeks were no better. Heat accounted for most of the 60 emergency calls at Levi's Stadium during an exhibition game during the stadium's inaugural year with two people being taken to the emergency room, per The Mercury News.

In 2014, the 49ers included a Levi's Stadium Inaugural Season logo'd equipment bag, a drawstring backpack, a Power Bank battery charger for your mobile device, Sony active sport headphones, a clear bag for stadium use, and more within season ticket packages.

The 49ers' 2022 Season Has Officially Been Ruled 'Out' - SF 7, Philadelphia 31

It wasn't supposed to end like this. But in the end, what did you expect? This is who the 49ers are. Not a bad team, no. God, no. If that's what you think after watching an NFFCG collapse, I humbly request you consider this game tomorrow. A week from now. With a bit of distance, tracing the arc of the whole season. That still doesn't change the fact that this game was ugly. It was horrific. No, it was worse - a farce. This was Kyle Shanahan trying to bluff an invading army with a tea party out in the open. There's no blame to be laid at his feet here. Maybe against another army, a team less consistently aggressive and outside of its home turf. It's just not a strategy that works against Nick Sirianni's Eagles. Playoff football is a game of



"Tough way to go out": 49ers reflect on brutal end to magical season

All things being equal, the San Francisco 49ers probably had a decent chance to compete against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, possibly earning a return trip to the Super Bowl. All things didn't end up being equal, though. The Niners entered the NFC Championship Game with Brock Purdy at quarterback. Purdy entered the regular season as QB3. However, an ankle injury to Trey Lance in Week 2, and then a foot injury to Jimmy Garoppolo 11 weeks later, left the 49ers turning to Purdy, a relatively unknown rookie to casual NFL fans, to finish out the season. It turns out Purdy might have been exactly what the 49ers needed. First, he won that December 4 contest against the Miami Dolphins, replacing Garoppolo. Then he proceeded to win the seven starts that followed,



21 quick observations from the 49ers' 2022 season

After every game, I do a quick "observations" piece, listing the handful of things that jumped out to me in the game. Since there (sadly) was no game on Sunday to write about, I decided to give my observations from the season. Here are some things that jumped out to me: Four quarterbacks played. Four quarterbacks went down. Why are the 49ers cursed at the QB position? Who has the voodoo doll? I'm blaming Jim Tomsula. Another wasted season for Trey Lance. If he never becomes who we hope he'll become, Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch better hope they win a Super Bowl with someone else. So long, Jimmy Garoppolo. You served the 49ers well. But I'm still not sure how you stepped out of the back of the end zone in Denver. Brock Purdy is



49ers' Brock Purdy hopes to be ready for the 2023 season

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance expects to be cleared to practice in under four weeks. But, for Brock Purdy, the wait will be longer. A lot longer. The 23-year-old quarterback suffered a tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in the elbow of his throwing arm during the first quarter of Sunday's NFC Championship Game loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. He will require surgery and is expected to be sidelined for about six months, assuming the injury requires a repair and not reconstruction. "I've heard multiple things," Purdy explained to reporters on Tuesday as players cleared out their lockers in Santa Clara. "I think, in that scenario, that would be six
