Levi’s Stadium cost approximately $1.3 billion to build.

In 2010, the Santa Clara Stadium Authority was created, and a construction loan was granted with private investors. Construction on a new stadium began in April 2012, and Levi’s Stadium officially opened on July 17, 2014.

Where Did the 49ers Play Before Levi’s Stadium?

The San Francisco 49ers played in Candlestick Park from 1971-2013.

By the mid-2000s, the stadium needed to be replaced. The 49ers originally proposed a new stadium at the same site as Candlestick Park, but negotiations with the city of San Francisco went nowhere, so the team turned to Santa Clara and, eventually, built Levi’s Stadium.
