Starting next season, the San Francisco 49ers will offer unlimited food and beverage items to season ticket holders at Levi’s Stadium, becoming the first NFL team to do so in the process.
It might come as a surprise that this has happened across all sporting codes sooner, especially with 49er’s season tickets at Levi’s Stadium ranging from $2,000 to $80,000, or $79-$400 per game, but it appears the club is actually taking on feedback from the fans.
“Our fan surveys and those reflecting the entirety of the NFL show that the food service experience is a key driver of fan satisfaction,” 49ers President, Al Guido, said in a press release.
“That insight helped lead us to this new model as a way to increase value for our members while providing them with the most seamless concessions experience in all of sport.”
The announcement is part of the team’s “Member Inclusive Menu” initiative and will offer concession mainstays like chicken tenders, hot dogs, nachos and popcorn free of charge, along with Pepsi products and Peet’s Coffee.
You will notice that there is one very important football food group missing here – beer is not included.
But, it is understood that season ticket-holders will still receive a 15% discount on items not included in the unlimited menu… Like beer.
Season ticket prices will increase by an average of $20 for next year’s season, said 49ers Director of Communications, Roger Hacker.
