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 San Francisco 49ers are in the home stretch, with only six games remaining. After Sunday's victory over the New Orleans Saints, you'd think 49ers fans have nothing to worry about. But a handful of injuries, and some tough upcoming opponents, have given fans plenty of reasons to fret. We opened up our 49ers mailbag to see what was on the troubled minds of fans. Let's take a peek inside. What do you think is holding back these 49ers on offense? All The tools are there but lack the explosion on plays. - Will D. The 49ers have been inconsistent on offense.

The San Francisco 49ers placed Elijah Mitchell on injured reserve for the second time this season after the running back suffered an MCL sprain in his left knee last weekend against the New Orleans Saints. On Friday, head coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers placing Mitchell on injured reserve was not a certainty. That's because the team has two remaining opportunities to bring players back from injured reserve, having already used six. They will presumably use one more for defensive Javon Kinlaw, who Shanahan said may return soon. "You're allowed eight, so that's the biggest thing," Shanahan explained. "I think we need to use them by [the start of the

The San Francisco 49ers knocked off the visiting Miami Dolphins 33-17 on Sunday, doing so with rookie quarterback Brock Purdy at the helm of the offense, not Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo suffered a left foot injury on the team's first offensive drive and was ruled out for the remainder of the game. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after the game, providing an update on his injured starting quarterback. Garoppolo suffered a broken foot and will undergo season-ending surgery. "Just hearing it, it was pretty crushing," Shanahan said. "We know what Jimmy's been through, how hard he's worked at this. I got the news in the second quarter, so it was a little different for me ... it was such a special win. But definitely mixed emotions hearing about
