The San Francisco 49ers NHL football team got its name from the nickname ‘forty niners‘ given to the first wave of fortune seekers who flocked to Northern California in 1849 during the gold rush era.
The team retained San Francisco in its name despite moving some 32 miles outside the city in 2014 to a new home stadium, the Levi’s Stadium, in Santa Clara, a suburb of San Jose.
While headquartered and having training facilities in Santa Clara since 1988, the 49ers had previously always played in the city of San Francisco since its founding in 1946, first at Kezar Stadium, and later Candlestick Park.
The Intel Museum is located within Intel’s headquarters at 2200 Mission College Boulevard in Santa Clara, California, near the Montague Expressway exit off Highway 101. Admission is free and it is open weekdays and Saturdays except holidays.
The San Francisco 49ers NFL football team plays its home games at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. It has been the team’s home venue since 2014 having previously been based at Candlestick Park in San Francisco.
The 2015 season Super Bowl 50 was played at Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, California on February 7th, 2016 between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers.
The Broncos won, defeating the Panthers 24–10, and Denver linebacker Von Miller was named Super Bowl MVP. As the 50th Super Bowl, the league named it Super Bowl 50 instead of Super Bowl L, breaking the tradition of numbering games with Roman numerals. Coldplay headlined the halftime show with special guest performers Beyoncé and Bruno Mars.
