The San Francisco's new stadium, Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., held a public practice Friday ahead of the first game in their new stadium on Sunday, a pre-season matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Denver Broncos.
The team locker room is unlike any other I have been in. Marked by high ceilings, beautiful wood lockers and excellent light, the spacious home away from home for the players is more like a giant walk-in closet than a typical locker room's concrete cavern.
Again, unlike the standard concrete-walled side room typical of post-game coaches talks, Levis Stadium's press conference room, with stadium seating and comfortable seats, feels more like a performance theater or music venue.
The Brocade Club, seen here, the Champions Club, the Levi’s’ 501 Club, and the Yahoo Fantasy Football Lounge all provide an exquisite football experience which includes upscale dining and full service bars.
At the reception desk leading to the executive office at the SAP Performance Center, the team traditionally displays each opponents team helmet, Swapping them out to the center spot on the week they play the 49ers. There seems to be high hopes this year, and rightly so, the team has plush new digs, and some sweet technology to back them on their road to victory.
