The San Francisco 49ers’ Levi’s Stadium will be back to full capacity for the 2021-22 season of the National Football League, the team’s president, Al Guido, said Friday.
The 49ers are expected to host the Kansas City Chiefs in their preseason home game at Levi’s Stadium on August 14, while their first regular season home game will be played against the Green Bay Packers on September 26.
The 49ers were one of 13 teams that did not play their 2020 home games in front of any fans for safety and health reasons during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Not a day goes by that we haven’t missed the 49ers fans at Levi’s Stadium and we look forward to fully welcoming them again for the coming season,” tweeted Guido.
“We’d like to thank the frontline healthcare workers at Levi’s Stadium who have worked tirelessly to run the largest vaccination facility in California.”
Levi’s Stadium has a capacity of 68,500.
