If you dragged your feet and missed out on scoring tickets to the 49ers' first season at the brand new Levi's Stadium (it's already sold out), there's still a chance to see the finished, $1.3 billion project before any official whistles are blown. The stadium is offering daily tours ($30), rain or shine (except for a few blackout dates). The stadium is also hosting non-NFL events including college football, pro wrestling, pro soccer, and the Super Bowl in 2016, the Business Times reports. You can even rent the Stadium for weddings and private parties. (We think the rooftop gardens would be amazing for that.) So as the countdown to August 17 begins, be sure to visit the stadium—if not to only drop into the official store and purchase your new 49ers branded Levi's wear for a fresh start to the team's new beginnings.
