Santa Clara 49ers

New, 1 comment

Yesterday at Santa Clara's City Council meeting the members approved a 40-year lease for the $1B stadium that the 49ers plan to build. The SF Examiner tells us that Santa Clara will receive $180,000 of rent in the first year of stadium operation, with $35,000 yearly increases for the first 10 years. Rent will be raised to $1 million in the 11th year, with increases of $100,000 every five years through the lease's initial term. The stadium could be open for business as early as the 2014 season.
