The new Santa Clara Stadium site has been humming for nearly 11 months, along with the ticket sales for the inaugural 2014 season. Mike Rosenberg of the Bay Area News Group reported that the future home of the 49ers is roughly 75 percent sold out already.
“Riding high off a Super Bowl run, the San Francisco 49ers have sold three-fourths of the seats at the new Silicon Valley stadium as the team prepares to transfer a huge cash infusion to the public agency building the stadium,” Rosenberg wrote. “Undeterred by huge price increases over Candlestick Park tickets, fans and corporations have bought $403 million worth of seats, — equal to the cost spent to build the stadium so far — and the Niners are well ahead of schedule to sell out before the 2014 opening, the team said Friday.”
