49ers To Open Team Store At Levi's Stadium Featuring Branded Specialty Shops
The 49ers announced that the club will open a 13,000-square-foot version of their flagship Team Store in August at Levi's Stadium, featuring "specialty shops for Nike, New Era, Mitchell & Ness and, of course, Levi's," according to Mike Rosenberg of the SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS. The team also revealed that it will "begin offering year-round public tours" when the stadium opens in August -- "at a cost that starts at $25 per person." The "price and details of the newly-named 20,000-square-foot 49ers Museum" also were unveiled. While the 49ers have "been racking up vague 'founding partner' sponsorship deals with various companies for more than a year, it's now assigned their corporate names to parts of the stadium." Among the most visible "are the two open-air platforms at the top of the two stadium main entrances: the Bud Light Patio behind the south end zone and the Pepsi Fan Deck on the north end." Other deals include: the Visa Box Office, the NRG Solar Terrace atop the suite tower, the Verizon Press Level Dining Room eight floors up in the suite tower, and the Levi's 501 Club and the Yahoo Fantasy Football Lounge each four stories up. Then there's the Intel Plaza Gate A, the Dignity Health Plaza Gate C and clubs named after BNY Mellon and Brocade (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 5/6).
