The San Francisco 49ers plan to provide a special experience for fans during Saturday’s Divisional Playoff Game at Candlestick Park.
The 49ers host New Orleans at 1:35 p.m. with U.S. Bank FlexPerks & Derby of San Francisco serving as game sponsors. The game is sold out and will be televised nationally on Fox. Fans looking for tickets for Saturday’s game are encouraged to go on to NFL Ticket Exchange powered by Ticketmaster. To accommodate early patrons, parking lot gates will open at 8:30 a.m.
“There is a reason we call our fans the Faithful and they deserve a home playoff game,” said Director of Marketing Ali Towle. “So, we’re doing everything we can to celebrate their dedication and enthusiasm for this team and this playoff opportunity. Our goal is to make Saturday a lasting memory for our season ticket holders and fans.”
A new and popular feature at Candlestick Park this season is the Grand Plaza. It opens at 10:30 a.m. with live music, various food and beverage options, games for kids, the 49ers Museum and 49ers apparel stores, including a women’s-only shop.
