San Francisco 49ers Game day sports
San Francisco 49ers are hosting their 64th Season under this franchise in the all new Santa Clara Stadium in California. The $1.2 Billion construction began mid-April 2012 and is expected to be opened in July 2014 just in time for the 2014/15 season.
When comparing the Santa Clara with 49ers current stadium, the Candlestick, it certainly seems bigger. Though seating capacity has actually decreased slightly this stadium will stand it's place in Silicon Valley almost doubling the old stadium's square footage.
Partnerships have already been developed between 'NRG Energy' and 'Sony' with many more to come, already making this stadium an absolute showcase of technology and design. Some features of the new stadium include; Stadium wide Wifi accesibility and mobile connectivity, IPTV, and 13,000 square foot video boards in HD.
The build is also incorporating some incredibly impressive ECO designs to match it against it's beautiful surrounding, such designs include; 400kw photovoltaic panels that will provide enough energy to power all of the seasons home games in one year, very good public transport access, good bicycle parking as well as walking access from San Tomas Creek. The building is also designed with lists of Sophisticated and sustainable features of which half are recycled.
December, 2014 will present the Santa Clara stadium with the chance to host the annual Bay Area postseason college football game for the first time. Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl member said, "The teams that participate in the Bowl will have the opportunity to play in a world-class NFL stadium that in all likelihood will host the Super Bowl, and fans who attend the game will have all the amenities of a premier football facility full of technological advancements. That combination is going to make our Bowl a more desirable destination for college football teams throughout the country and fans throughout the Bay Area. It's a real game-changer for us".
The Santa Clara was designed to be a multi-purpose facility with the flexibility to host a wide range of events including, domestic and international soccer, college football, motocross, concerts and various civic events, and will be expandable for major events such as the Super Bowl. We can't wait to see it done.
