San Francisco 49ers Levi's Stadium

Bookmark and Share
Many years in the making, Levi’s Stadium is the first of a new generation of stadiums, influenced by the technological innovations of Silicon Valley and the food and wine culture of the region.

The design-build project officially opened in July 2014 as more than just a football facility. It has been designed as “an outdoor entertainment venue,” created with a variety of sports, events and other entertainment experiences in mind.

Levi's Stadium includes concepts and solutions  that have the potential to change stadium-design and the fan experience for many years in the future.
