MT: Levi’s Stadium is Born

Posted by Taylor Price on May 10, 2013 – 11:31 AM

The San Francisco 49ers have a name to their future home, Levi’s® Stadium.

Thanks to a unanimous, 7-0 vote buy the Santa Clara City Council, the $220 million stadium naming rights deal between the iconic Bay Area brands is now official.

“It’s a testament to why we always thought this project would work,” 49ers CEO Jed York told the San Jose Mercury News. “To anybody who ever doubted this project would happen, these numbers speak for themselves.”

York spoke at the city council meeting along with Levi’s® CEO Chip Bergh, who wisely wore 49ers-colored Levi’s® jeans.

Following the approval, both CEOs shook hands with big grins. Soon after, they posed for photos with members of the City Council and members of the 49ers front office.

LevisStadium.com is now the place to learn all about the team’s future home. Book your tour of Levi’s® Stadium today.

Mike Ozanian of Forbes.com explained how the stadium deal helps the clothing company.

ProFootballTalk.com shared an interesting note on San Francisco’s Super Bowl L bid.

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle compared Lawrence Okoye’s vertical jump to Rams rookie, Tavon Austin.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee previewed the rookie minicamp set to begin on Friday.

    and it breaks my heart that the niners wont be playing football at the stick(after this year) it could have been worse than levis i guess, is it wrong to hope that a giant earthquake destroys the new stadium forcing the niners to remain at the stick ?

    Wrong is the wrong word ace…its just stupid to think that way.

    wrong was also what the media said when they were trying to sell us on the idea of the new stadium in the south bay , they actually said that the 49ers fan base is really from the south bay anyway, $#$#T$$%&^%$&#%$#&%$#&$!!!!

    WOW! i missed all the fun this weekend…..blahblahblah was at it again….long winded useless whining…..man some of your quotes to many to remark on but two stuck out “got rid of wrong qb” say what? and” smith would have been in top 100 if he played” again say what? how do u know what he would have done? and got rid of wrong qb? they were 5 yards from wininning super bowl cuz kap. carried them in the second half and u say kept wrong qb? u r the only person out there that thinks the niners kept wrong qb…..i think alot of us would agree when niners were down u didn’t feel smith would make a come back but with kap. u just feel it will happen he will do something to get them back into the game…..look up the 2011 stat alex smith had the best field position than any other qb he started his drives on other side of 50 yard line more than any other qb….that year the defense did it all for him and he still struggled to get in end zone thats why they kicked so many fg’s that year he stalled and blew good field positon alot..blahblahblah u hang your hat on the saints game big deal kap. has had at least 3 of those games already…..so go with alex to kc.

    you should be slapped in the face for saying that an earthquake should happen ace,,how old are you? like 8?

    phatalerror is really alex smiths wife venting all her hate at the 49ers org. for replacing her husband with a qb who can actually throw the ball downfield more than 25 yards and hit our recievers in stride,,,

    and alot of the fans who come to 49ers game come from san jose and the santa clara area ace,all you have to do is ask around at the tailgate parties,but since you dont go to games i guess you really wouldnt understand

  12. By 49erdefense2012 on May 13, 2013 | Reply

    yes mfkram,blahblahblah has nothing BUT the playoff game against the saints to point out how well alex played,,,you cant tell me thaqt alex smith would have brought us back against the packers,falcons and ravens and won those games,,kap went 2-1 in playoff come from behind games,,,remember we fell behind green bay early on a kap pick 6 but KAP ralyyed our team to victory,if that had been alex’s pick 6 harbaugh and roman would have had to change the game plan to try and work around the INCONSISTENCIES of alex and his poorer than kaps throwing motion and concrete feet,,,,blahblahblah goes on and on and on about kaps so called poor pocket awareness and kap so called bad footwork and kaps so called inability to read and make progressions but conveintly leaves out the fact tha alex has all those probles and has them WORSE than kap,,,,HE IS SO JADED HIS POINT OF VEIW IS MORE CLOUDED THAN A NIGHT GAME AT CANDLESTICK

    I never thought of that. But your probably right 49defense2012. phatalerror is Alex Smith’s wife. That’s why she hates Kaepernick and THE 49ERS so much.

    WOW

    That explains alot……..

    He/She needs to move along now. She’s been exposed……

    LOL

    Blahblahs name says it all. If you pronounce it correctly it actually sounds like FATAL ERROR. Uhhhm…pretty much sums up what his mom thought of him.
