I went to a work related conference today mostly because I wanted to see the inside of Levi’s stadium. It’s a football (American football) stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers (in Santa Clara). The first game played here was a soccer game couple of months ago.
The conference was held on 4th floor and I believed the section belonged to Citrix club. I don’t know much about the stadium business so this is all new to me. As I was talking to one of the concierge there I realized it’s really expensive to be a fan. Different club has different price tag and benefits. The 50 yard line (+/-10) zone are the most expensive seat. Unlike other stadiums I’ve been too, this one also catered to events like the conference I was attending so it’s more than just a stadium. Their solar power source can power up to 10 games and all grass water are recycled…pretty impressive. There’s a daily tour for $25.
The cheapest ticket I think is at least $100. There was a guy at the conference selling an end zone ticket 4 floors up for $200 each so go figure.
I can never see myself be a fan of any stadium sport. Watching a PRO cycling event on the street costs ZERO dollar.
