The San Francisco 49ers announced on Tuesday that they will open up a practice session to the public on Saturday, August 5. The practice will take place at Levi’s Stadium, and run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. It is six days before their preseason opener against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Tickets will be available first to season ticket holders, and then to the general public. Season ticket holders will have initial access to reserve up to four tickets for the practice. They will receive an email on Thursday, July 20 with a link to the ticketing website. Each ticket will carry a $5 fee, with the money going to the 49ers Foundation. Children under 6 will not require a ticket.
The general public will get access to tickets on Tuesday, July 25. A link to the registration website will be made available at a later date. Tickets will be only be made available through the Levi’s Stadium App, and so there will be not printed ticket option. That means you need to download the app on your phone to take advantage of this.
The event will include free food and beverages for everybody in attendance. This will include stadium hot dogs, hamburgers, french fries, pizza, nachos, popcorn, peanuts, pretzels, water, coffee, and soft drinks. According to the 49ers, “patrons will be limited to selecting four free items per person, per concession stand visit to ensure all guests can be served in a timely manner. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.”
There are no other practices open to the public at this point. That remains a disappointment for Bay Area fans. Prior to the start of Levi’s Stadium construction, the 49ers would offer multiple open practices. That’s not the case for the time being, but one is better than none.
