Traffic – Not a Problem at 49ersnewstadium.com

Posted by Taylor Price on June 11, 2010 – 2:37 PM

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.

    My only question is do they still plan on using the waste of space garages for parking? That would be the worst experience leaving and comin… I would never drive let alone tailgate if so

    I think that there will be thousands of parking spots that will be available for tailgating.
    The parking garage will be for those that don’t wish to tailgate(except that they may be able to gather on the roof of the garage to BBQ ).
    Just like many fans will arrive on Bus and train and light rail ,along with the people who choose to use the garage,may all have special areas where they can gather and BBQ etc etc ,before the game.
    If you choose to BBQ right at your vehicles parking space then there will be plenty of spaces for that too.
    After all,one of the main reasons John York gave for not building at Candlestick point was that there would be the mall and housing etc being built on the property,as well as the stadium and ONLY parking garages and no space left for the fans to enjoy their tailgating tradition.

    Dear Jed York:
    Are you changing the name of the San Francisco 49ers, once and for all — with answer binding on all past, present, and future fundraising.?
    Many people we know will cease all support, should there even be the mere possibility that the organization’s name might change.
    Please issue an unequivocal statement that this will never, and could never, happen to the San Francisco 49ers — wherever their stadium is located — and whoever funds it.

    Wish I could be there to see it. I am overseas sailing the world. Have a good season all my 49er brothers and sisters. Enjoy your new home land. I will be over here watching the games and there in that gourgeous stadium in spirit.

    Are you kidding that parking will not be a problem? 16 acres for a stadium and parking around the stadium is not enough room for all the tailgating. I went to a game last year at the Stick and I was there at 9 a.m. for a 1 p.m. game and the only parking in the lot was prepaid so I had to park in a dirt lot and paid $30. Niner fans like to tailgate and they can’t do that in a garage. People attending the first game will not be in their seat until halftime.

    I think the niners should stay in san. fran. where they belong. Why move when you already have a good thing going in a perfect city.

    Ashley, I completely agree! Sadly, it all seems to be about money these days….

    The San Francisco 49ers has given the city countless great games and FIVE Superbowl championships. The stadium is well deserved. Teams who have not accomplished all that the 49ers have over the years have gotten brand new stadiums (Arizona, Seattle, Denver and California is building a stadium for a team that does not exist in L.A.)I am a San Francisco native and have been to some games. I love the old stadium ambiance, but it is exactly that…OLD! I would gladly make the trip to the 49ers new stadium in Santa Clara and enjoy my team.

    they are still gonna be the SF 49ers when they move to Santa Clara, right? Santa Clara 49ers just don’t seem right.

    SF 49ers should keep their name. Both NYJ & NYG play in New Jersey & the Washington Redskins play in Maryland. They will have alot of angry fans if they don’t!

    this is really sad how can u call them the san francisco 49ers when they play 40 miles south? i am a lifelong 9er fan u see how the giants built a stadium in the city and all the support they got now look were world champs! what r u gonna show panoramic views of great america when they broadcast the game? get real this is not good for football and they don’t care about the fans because i garantee that if the 9ers took a vote the fans would keep em in SF!

    Wake Up People ! The 49ers have been punked by the voters & politicians long enough with their stalling & inaction! Candlestick is the oldest stadium in the league & the fans deserve better! Santa Clara agrees & so do I .They will ALWAYS be OUR 49ers regardless of the 30 mile change of venue. Why would you stay in a location that is doing absolutely nothing to retain them other than lawsuits? Only when they are gone, will the City realize what a jewel it has LOST! Not to mention all the revenue the team generated for them. It’s a bitter pill to swallow, but grow up & face reality. And.please, go to where you are wanted!!Think about this new motto— New Era, New Coach, New Stadium— Has a nice ring to it, HUH?
