Arena Possible Alongside New Candlestick Point Stadium

SAN FRANCISCO (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The San Francisco 49ers and their building partners are preparing to debut the long-awaited megaplan for a new 68,000-seat stadium at Candlestick Point, as well as a possible last-minute addition of a 12,000-seat arena.

While the additional arena would likely be too small to attract the Golden State Warriors or other major sports franchises, the developers believe a midsize venue could be just the ticket for second-tier sports such as soccer or arena football, along with big-name musical acts and other entertainment, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Organizers told the paper that they plan to attract people out to Candlestick Point on more than just the 10 days or so per year that the Niners play there. Other facets of the megaplan include a massive parking garage, housing, stores and a hotel. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
