When the news was announced that the new San Francisco 49ers Stadium, Levi’s Stadium, would serve as the site for Super Bowl 50 - fans erupted and cheered, waving their red rally towels.

The 49ers will call Levi’s Stadium home beginning in 2014. The multi-purpose facility was built to host a wide range of events, including domestic and international soccer, college football, motocross, concerts and various civic events, and will be expandable for major events such as Super Bowl 50. Just two weeks ago, it was announced that Levi Strauss & Co. (LS&Co.) and the Niners agreed to a stadium naming rights deal for the new Santa Clara Stadium.
After all the great news, came disappointment for Niners fans. This morning it was reported that 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree has a torn Achilles. Crabtree will undergo surgery and could miss the 2013 season.
