49ers - Levi's Stadium?
Mon Jun 03, 2013 3:48 pm
  • So Levi's has naming rights to the new 49ers Stadium.

    1). Levi's Stadium? Awful name.
    2). Doesn't Levi's sponsor Russel Wilson?... I feel like this is a wave we need to ride...

    Sort of funny how worried the fans are about it.

  • Field of Jeans? The big zipper? The House of Blue Demin, Button fly zone.

    Who cares what they call it as long as the Hawks beat the digits there this year.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons.

    What a special magical year!

  • Button Fly stadium. Because turtles can hear a zipper a mile away.

  • Levi's .. started in San Francisco, headquartered in San Francisco. Many stories about how Levi's started by making jeans for Gold Miners (although I'm not sure if this is just folklore). Doesn't really matter, I think it is kind of cool a stadium rights deal actually has something to do with the city and its history.

    Agreed. I would have preferred Levi's Field to Levi's Stadium, but my guess is that "Field" was reserved so that they can name the actual playing surface Bill Walsh Field just as it is at Candlestick (was named when he died). So name would be like "Bill Walsh Field at Levi's Stadium".

    Your folklore is correct. Levi Strauss created pants with brass rivets for the original gold rush "49ers" in 1849. They later introduced Denim and Jeans were born. Alot of history there.

    At first I would have preferred a tech company like Cisco, Apple or Intel, but Levi's works. At least they aren't in danger of being purchased so the stadium will have to be renamed. I know that happened in Seattle and it happened here at AT&T.
