Levi's Stadium

Levi's Stadium officially opened on July 17, 2014. It is located in Santa Clara, California, 38.3 miles south of San Francisco.

On June 8, 2010, voters in Santa Clara approved Measure J, allowing Santa Clara to lease the land previously used as an overflow parking lot by the Great America theme park. This allowed the 49ers Stadium Authority to begin plans to construct Levi's Stadium for the San Francisco 49ers. Funds for the project were secured on December 13, 2011, and construction started in April 2012.

Santa Clara was chosen after plans to build a new stadium at Candlestick Point, an effort to replace the aging and outdated Candlestick Park, failed when the 49ers and the city of San Francisco could not agree on the new stadium's location. The 49ers offices and training facility have been located in Santa Clara since 1987, so that was the logical next choice.

Tip: August through October can be very warm. Dress accordingly, use sunscreen, and drink plenty of water.

Levi's Stadium and the San Francisco Bay Area were chosen as the host stadium and city for Super Bowl 50, which took place on February 7, 2016.

The stadium will host Super Bowl 60 on Sunday, February 8, 2026.

Stadium Name

On May 9, 2013, the 49ers and Levi Strauss & Co. announced a 20-year naming rights proposal to the Santa Clara Stadium Authority. The deal is worth $220 million, making Levi Strauss & Co. a corporate sponsor of the 49ers. At the time, the $11 million per season deal was the second-largest among current NFL naming rights agreements.


Over 180 different food items are served at Levi's Stadium, with 17 types of quick-service concepts named for exactly what they're selling. They include Franks (nitrate-free, with a vegan option), Burgers (with American Kobe beef and vegan burgers), Curry (Indian-style, with spiced naan, cassava chips, and varieties like Rajasthani lamb and vegan navy bean and kale), Tortas, Soft Serve, Barbecue (pulled pork or pulled jackfruit), Panini and Steamed Buns (Asian-style bao in Peking duck, pork belly, and vegan portobello varieties).

Many stands also offer kids' meals, including pizza, hot dogs, and chicken tenders. Vegans and vegetarians also have plenty of options.

On the upper concourse, there is a Mondo Burrito, a taproom with 42 different draft beers, and many places have wine available. There is also Michael Mina's Bourbon Steak & Pub, a high-end steakhouse with a casual pub that is also open on non-game days.

49ers Museum

Levi's Stadium is home to a 20,000-square-foot interactive museum that highlights the San Francisco 49ers' rich history in the Bay Area and consists of 11 gallery and exhibit spaces. You can stop by the Morabito Theater to watch the history of the 49ers on a 50-by-18-foot Sony 4K screen. The Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. 49ers Hall of Fame houses life-size statues of the 49ers enshrined in Canton, Ohio. You can even see a re-creation of legendary 49ers head coach Bill Walsh's first office located in Redwood City.

There is a learning center for younger fans and interactive features on the bottom level of the museum. For example, you can practice your field goal skills by kicking through a virtual field goal, practice your endzone dance, learn to cheer with the Gold Rush cheerleaders, try your hand at broadcasting, and try on a 49ers uniform.

There is a fee to enter the museum.


There is stadium-wide Wi-Fi available for all fans. You can use it to access statistics, replays, and more via the stadium's official app.

You can also order food from your seat and either pick it up or have it delivered to you for a small fee. The options available for in-seat delivery are limited. You place an order and pay on your mobile device, an estimate for the delivery time is given, a code is made available on your device, and you show that code to the person who delivers your order.

Tip: Allow more time for your order to be delivered than the given estimate. The estimate can be lower than the actual delivery time.

You can also access mobile ticketing, turn-by-turn directions throughout the stadium, and view wait times for concession stands and restrooms. It is estimated that fans within the stadium are at most 10 feet away from a Wi-Fi signal.

Data speeds within the stadium during game time average about 60 Mbps for both download and upload.

Tip: Just to let you know, some phone carriers may be able to beat those speeds in the area of the stadium. For example, T-Mobile offers higher download speeds in the area. Game time speeds will vary.

Solar Power

Levi's Stadium features 49 solar arrays provided by NRG Energy on the roof of the facility to form the NRG Solar Terrace. It also features NRG Solar Bridges that fans cross to access the stadium. These all consist of over 1,150 solar panels. They gather enough energy to power the stadium for every San Francisco 49ers home game.


There are 10 clubs located within Levi's Stadium, with the largest being the United Club located on the 300 level of the Suite Tower. It runs the entire length of the field.
