49ers Nearing Seat License Sellout For New Santa Clara Stadium
SANTA CLARA (KCBS) – The pricey seat licenses at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara have been snapped up by San Francisco 49ers fans in advance of the 2014 NFL season, with almost 95 percent already sold.
Seat licenses run from $2,000 to $80,000, and that doesn’t include the price of season tickets, which cost between $850 and $3,750.
San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York said, despite the lofty price tag, only a few sideline seats remain.
“I never doubted that we’d be successful from both a football and a business standpoint, building a new stadium in Santa Clara,” York said. “Again, we want this to be something great for the region.”
York said the fan experience will surpass any other stadium.
“We’ve always said we wanted to be a smarter stadium, we want to be a very innovative stadium, and I think that’s what Silicon Valley and Northern California are all about,” he said. “Always being innovative and always being ahead of the curve and I think that’s what you’re going to see at Levi’s Stadium.”
York said he’s especially pleased that more than 70 percent of season ticket holders at Candlestick have re-upped.
