It’s been a slow and steady build-up with each event getting bigger than the last.
Saturday’s match will be one of the biggest for the Earthquakes who are expecting 46,000 people, according to a team spokesperson. Only a few tickets are left.
It will also be the first test of traffic in the area, which Santa Clara police have tweaked over the last month. They’ll be putting to use everything they’ve learned from past tests, including last week’s event when season pass ticket holders did a stadium walk-through.READ MORE: Investigation Finds Vallejo Officer's Use of Deadly Force Not 'Reasonable'
The Earthquakes just signed a five-year deal to hold at least one regular season game a year at the stadium.
Stadium goers should also be informed of the bag policy. Typically Major League Soccer have lenient bag policies, but that’s not the case with the NFL. Check out the website and the Levi’s Stadium Guide for everything you need to know before heading to the game.
