Moments after the 49ers received overwhelming approval from Santa Clara voters on Tuesday, June 8th to move forward with plans for a new stadium in Santa Clara, the team launched a brand new website, 49ersNewStadium.com.
The site has received an extraordinary amount of traffic from fans of the team and supporters of the project. In the first 24 hours of the launch, the site garnered more than 50,000 unique visitors, and is still averaging 1,245 unique visitors per hour.
The 49ers partnered with Channel 1 Media on the development of this new website. Channel 1 has produced similar pieces for over 80 professional sports franchises and properties throughout North America. Evan Karasick, Channel 1’s President, informed the 49ers that this is the most positive reaction they have ever seen to a site in its first day and the traffic generated was the highest of any site Channel 1 has developed.
“With over 50,000 unique visitors on its first day, it virtually trumps the number of viewers for similar sites we have produced for other prominent teams within the NFL, NHL and NBA,” Karasick said.
In the first 24 hours, along with over 50,000 unique visitors, the site averaged 2,085 unique visitors per hour. Between 11:00-11:59am PST on Wednesday, the site received its highest number of unique visitors (4,448).
This website was designed to educate fans about the new stadium, provide answers to their most pressing questions and offer an outlet for non-season ticket holders to join the wait list.
