Come see the National Football League’s San Francisco 49ers play at Candlestick Park.  Located at 602 Jamestown Avenue, Candlestick Park has been the home to the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers since 1971.  The stadium was constructed in 1959 and earned the name, Candlestick Park, in a ballot by fans.  It was renamed in 1995 to 3Com Park, but then in 1999 it was once again named Candlestick Park.  At maximum capacity, the stadium can hold up to 70,207 people.



Gates open 2 hours prior to kick-off.  Parking gates open 4 hours prior to kick-off.  The 49ers Goldmine, which features NFL football on big screen TV’s, interactive games, pre-game shows, concessions, and face painting, also opens 4 hours prior to kick-off.



Transit service to and from the stadium for all games is available on the San Francisco Municipal Railway (MUNI), Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority, and the San Mateo County Transit (Sam Trans) buses.  Connections from BART, CalTrain, Golden Gate Transit and AC Transit can also be made to MUNI and Sam Trans ballpark routes.
