SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Levi’s® Stadium hits another major construction milestone as the first seats are set to be installed in the lower bowl of the venue on Tuesday, October 1, 2013 at 4:00 p.m. Levi’s® Stadium will seat 68,500 fans during 49ers home games and roughly two-thirds of the stadium’s capacity will be housed in the lower bowl. Featuring over 45,000 seats, the lower bowl will be one of the largest in the NFL and is designed to bring the majority of fans closer to the field.

Over 5,000 individual workers have helped construct Levi’s® Stadium to this point, with over 75 percent of those workers hailing from the Bay Area. The stadium seating is manufactured locally in Hayward and installation time for the seats will total over 17,000 man-hours.
