Centerplate Selected For Food, Merch At Proposed 49ers Stadium
Centerplate, pending city review and approval, has been selected to operate food and merchandise for the 49ers’ proposed stadium in Santa Clara. The terms cover an initial five-year contract and five two-year options to renew, plus a consulting deal prior to the stadium’s opening. The 49ers are targeting April 30, 2015, to open their new $987M facility, but with financing still not completed, there are “no guarantees” it will be completed by that date, according to the RFP issued by the Santa Clara Stadium Authority. City officials will meet Tuesday to review the authority’s recommendation for Centerplate to be awarded the contract.
Centerplate is the 49ers’ current food and retail provider at Candlestick Park and runs general concessions at AT&T Park, home of the Giants.
