SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - The San Francisco have opened their new stadium in Santa Clara with a ribbon-cutting ceremony complete with all the opulence of their new home.
And with confetti streaming down under a blue sky Thursday, there was a general feeling about the $1.2 billion building: Wow!
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, linebacker Patrick Willis and left tackle Joe Staley joined 49ers CEO Jed York and city officials to cut the ribbons.
They used oversized red scissors with gold blades in keeping with team colors. Hard-hat wearing construction workers lined the steps in fluorescent yellow jackets as team employees cheered.
