49ers New Stadium

The Packers head out to San Francisco on Friday, a day earlier than they normally travel, to acclimate themselves to the West Coast time zone, climate, etc. Sunday’s 3:25 p.m. (CT) game will be the first time that they have played in Levi’s Stadium, the 49ers’ new home. The 49ers are enamored with the place, as you can see in these 22 pages from their 2015 Media Guide. Like, really enamored. In comparison, the Packers have 13 pages about historic Lambeau Field in their own 2015 Media Guide.

This illustrates the need to have top-notch stadium facilities in the NFL, which is why the Packers have recently done, and will be doing, seemingly continual improvements to Lambeau Field and to their stadium “footprint.” You have to keep up with the Joneses in this league — and not just the Jerry Joneses.
