Create an itinerary including Levi's Stadium
Levi's Stadium is an American football stadium located in Santa Clara, California, just outside San Jose in the San Francisco Bay Area. It has served as the home venue for the National Football League (NFL)'s San Francisco 49ers since 2014. The stadium is located approximately 40 miles (64 km) south of San Francisco. It is named after Levi Strauss & Co., which purchased naming rights in 2013.

In 2006, the 49ers proposed constructing a new stadium at Candlestick Point in San Francisco, the site of their erstwhile home, Candlestick Park. The project, which included plans for retail space and housing improvements, was claimed to be of great potential benefit to the nearby historically blighted neighborhood of Hunters Point. After negotiations with the city of San Francisco fell through, the 49ers focused their attention on a site adjacent to their administrative offices and training facility in Santa Clara.

In June 2010, Santa Clara voters approved a measure authorizing the creation of the tax-exempt Santa Clara Stadium Authority to build and own the new football stadium and for the city to lease land to the authority. A construction loan raised from private investors was secured in December 2011, allowing construction to start in April 2012. Levi's Stadium opened on July 17, 2014.
Levi's Stadium was the site of the Pac-12 Football Championship Game from 2014 through 2019 before moving to Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. Previously, that game was played on the home field of the division winner possessing the better record. Levi's Stadium hosted Super Bowl 50 on February 7, 2016 and also hosted the 2019 College Football Playoff National Championship. Levi's Stadium will host multiple matches during the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

  • Great stadium, toms of 49er ambiance and legacy and all that. Awesome experience. The one complaint is that I can't believe the parking and traffic situation is close to as bad as it was at...

  • 49ers fan or not Levi's Stadium holds its own against other open-air NFL Stadiums built in the last decade. A schlep from San Francisco proper it doesn't take much effort to find affordable or free.....  more

  • We arrived at the concert venue 3 hours in advance, so we didn't have unpleasant experience with getting in. Though I had to go back to my car to leave my (small) clutch there. Everyone (security guards, vendors...) was friendly and helpful. Fried chicken was tender and delicious!
  • It’s a great stadium! I felt that even though we were on 321 sitting area we had a good view. It doesn’t take long to enter. Please bring a clear or no handbag as they’ll refuse your entry if you bring something that they approve (check your ticket details) hot dogs were $8. Sodas $7 - premium hot dogs, a bit more filling $11. Parking lot $40 (!!) that’s why I gave 4 stars. They have to sort out how expensive the parking lots can be. They are encouraging people to cycle🚴‍♀️ with a free cycle vallet which is fantastic. They put your bike in a secure area. It is right next to the stadium entrance. I would really recommend that as an option if you live nearby!
