Levi's Stadium had its first ever sports event over the weekend. On Saturday, August 2, the new San Francisco 49ers home stadium hosted an MLS matchup between the visiting Seattle Sounders FC and the San Jose Earthquakes. 48,765 fans were in attendance to watch San Jose beat Seattle 1-0.

Many fans were there to experience Levi's Stadium for the first time. As expected during this age of digital media, many took videos as they took in the grandeur of the newest NFL stadium. Many of the below videos are by YouTube user Marcus Aguilar. They will give you a good idea of what to expect when attending a 49ers home game this season.

The following is a video of Aguilar entering Intel Gate A.



Aguilar also posted a video of the ticket scanners that fans will use as they enter for an event.



He went on to post videos of what it is like to roam the concourse with numerous fans.



Most fans will not have access to a suite at Levi's Stadium, but YouTube user Carlo Barot posted the following video of what it is like to watch an event from the team's new luxury boxes.



YouTube user oreyes82 posted the following video of the American flag being parachuted into the stadium.



Aguilar posted the following videos from his seats in Level 200. The first video is as the sun is setting and the second is at night.





The following is a short tour that aired on KCOY 12 news back in July.



Of course, not everything went as planned during Levi's Stadium's test run. Hopefully the kinks are worked out prior to August 17, when the 49ers host the Denver Broncos.

49ers rookie Trey Lance to make first NFL start, says Kyle Shanahan

The San Francisco 49ers hoped quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would be able to take part in today's practice and test whether his right leg was strong enough to play on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Garoppolo didn't, and he has now missed an entire week's worth of practice. After practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers are ruling Garoppolo "out" for the Week 5 matchup and that rookie Trey Lance would start in the veteran's place. With Garoppolo sidelined, Lance has received the majority of the practice reps this week. "The more reps you get, the better you're going to get," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR. "He does things exceptionally well. I think he's taken to our offense well. With every rep, he's going to get



Kyle Shanahan, Trey Lance 'excited' about 49ers rookie's first start

The San Francisco 49ers have ruled out quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. That means head coach Kyle Shanahan will rely on rookie Trey Lance to knock off the division leaders in his first NFL start. It isn't easy to know what to expect from the rookie. Last weekend was his first extended playing time. While things started somewhat shaky for the 21-year-old quarterback, he did appear to get more comfortable as the game progressed. Lance finished the game 9-of-18 passing for 157 yards and two touchdowns. He also had 41 rushing yards on seven carries. What does Shanahan expect from his rookie on Sunday? "Even quarterbacks who have played a thousand games before, you have quarterbacks who are great



'I know he can play': Carson Wentz excited about 49ers rookie Trey Lance's first start

Trey Lance was 17-0 as a starter at North Dakota State. Before him, Easton Stick was 49-3 as a starter. Before either of them, Carson Wentz impressed pro scouts during his 20-3 collegiate run. Five years after Wentz's first NFL start, Lance is getting his chance. A calf injury has sidelined Jimmy Garoppolo, so the No. 3 overall pick will start Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. One former Bison quarterback is excited for the other. "I definitely did get to know Trey a little bit over the last couple of years, and even going into the pre-draft process," Wentz told Rich Eisen today. "Great kid. Great kid. [He's] got a great head on his shoulders, and I love his



49ers-Cardinals: Players, coaches praise Trey Lance after first NFL start

Trey Lance's first NFL start was far from perfect, but it was good enough to leave a positive impression on those who were playing with and against him on the field. Lance finished with 192 yards on 15-of-29 passing with zero touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, while also leading both teams in rushing with 16 carries for 89 yards. Following the game, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters he felt Lance played well overall despite the first quarter interception that the Cardinals turned into their first touchdown. "I thought he did some really good things," Shanahan said. "Definitely wasn't perfect, which no one ever has been. That first pick I thought just sailed on him. He was going to the right spot but it
