Santa Clara Approves 49ers Stadium Deal; Last Step Will Be NFL Funding
Published December 14, 2011
ON THE TRADE MARKET? In S.F., C.W. Nevius wrote the city has “nearly lost the 49ers to Santa Clara, but there's talk it can build a basketball arena in Mission Bay.” A state-of-the-art arena for the Warriors “would be a huge asset,” and those putting the deal together “are predicting as many as 100 events a year.” That starts with 41 NBA regular-season home games, then “book a full slate of concerts and shows.” It could be “a spectacular venue built right on the bay, perhaps over the water on a pier.” MLB Giants fans have “already proved that public transportation works well there.” Nevius: “I'd make that trade in a second” (SFGATE.com, 12/13).
