Ticket Prices For Levi's Stadium MLS Opener Set Well Below 49ers Games
Levi's Stadium will open Aug. 2 with an MLS match between the Sounders and Earthquakes, with tickets costing "less than half as much" as 49ers games, according to Mike Rosenberg of the SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS. Prices for the game "were set at $45 to $150 apiece for just the lower bowl," while tickets for the "same seats at 49ers games will be $100 to $375 each." The venue's soft opening is "meant to work out any problems before bigger crowds arrive for the 49ers first preseason game." Within "an hour of the first stadium tickets going on sale to a few thousand VIP fans" yesterday, a 49ers season-ticket holder who "bought a four-pack of tickets to the Earthquakes game put them on sale on StubHub for $3,980 total." The face value of the four tickets was $460 total. The 49ers are "only selling tickets" for the MLS game in "the lower two-thirds of the nearly 70,000-seat capacity stadium." But the team said that the upper deck "will likely open" if the lower two-thirds sell out (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 3/6).
