About Levi's Stadium
Though Levi's Stadium serves as the home of the San Francisco 49ers, it's actually located in Santa Clara, California, more than 40 miles from downtown San Francisco. Opened in 2014, Levi’s Stadium has already hosted both a Super Bowl and a College Football Playoff National Championship, in addition to hosting a yearly college football bowl game and the Pac-12 Championship Game.
Best Places to Sit at Levi’s Stadium
For Levi’s Stadium sporting events, the absolute best place to be is the BNY Mellon Club. These seats are located on the 100-level right at the 50-yard line, with all-inclusive food and drinks and extra comfy seats. Of course, the best part is that Mellon Club fans can walk to the VIP sections on the field and get up close and personal with the action.
If you want to be close to the field but can’t spring for club seats, sections 107-110, 120-123, 131-134, and 142-145 are good options. They're located in the corners of the stadium, giving you a good view of at least one of the end zones and keeping you close to the field. Meanwhile, the cheapest 49ers tickets will be in the 400-level. However, seats in sections 410-413 will ensure you’re located in the middle of the field and have a good view from high up.
Tips for Visiting Levi’s Stadium
When visiting Levi’s Stadium or any other stadium in Northern California, you should always be aware of the weather. To avoid the sun during the day, grab tickets on the home sideline, sections 131-145 and 232-246. Of course, things will cool down quickly once the sun goes down, so for an evening game, bring extra layers for the second half.
Food to Try at Levi’s Stadium
As one of the newer stadiums in the NFL, the food at Levi’s Stadium events is world-class. Barbecue options are slow-smoked inside the stadium, so you know you're getting the real deal. The grass-fed American Kobe beef burger is also to die for. And, of course, there's plenty to drink with 1,000 beer tap handles inside the stadium and 27 miles worth of beer lines. There are also full bars on the main concourse that offer both liquor and 15 varieties of wine.
