Today, the San Francisco 49ers are playing their first game at the brand new Levi’s stadium. The 1.2 billion dollar building contains 1.85 million square feet, seats around 70,000 fans, and features approximately 165 luxury suites and 8,500 club seats.
In an effort to make the in-game viewing experience more intuitive and enjoyable, the Niners developed a stadium mobile app that allows fans to order booze and food directly from their seats. The app also has integrated GPS that can help fans find the bathroom or team store. These features seem like things that people would actually use. Good job, Niners.
