SANTA CLARA, Calif.,
May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The NFL announced it has selected the
San Francisco 49ers new Levi's Stadium in
Santa Clara as the host site for historic Super Bowl 50. The game scheduled for
February 7, 2016 marks the return of one of the world's iconic sporting events to the
San Francisco Bay Area for the first time since Stanford Stadium hosted Super Bowl 19 in 1985 when the 49ers defeated the Miami Dolphins. The new Silicon Valley Stadium was selected over
Miami's Sun Life Stadium.
Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce and Convention-Visitors Bureau President & CEO
Steve Van Dorn says "There is no better place than this brand new stadium to host the NFL's historic Super Bowl 50. Attendees are really going to enjoy the
California sunshine and beautiful
San Francisco Bay Area region."
Van Dorn added "We expect a huge surge in hotel occupancy for the entire region for the week the Super Bowl is here. Overall, the economic impact will be in the millions."
Located an hour south of
San Francisco in the center of Silicon Valley, the
1.2 billion dollar 68,500 seat Santa Clara Stadium has the ability to expand its number of seats for the Super Bowl. The stadium features 100,000 sq. ft. of event space, wide plazas, and 165 luxury suites with stadium-wide WiFi capability, mobile connectivity, IPTV, and colossal HD video boards measuring over 13,000 square feet.
