Candlestick Park, San Francisco CA

Candlestick Park

is located in San Francisco, California and is the home of the San Francisco 49’ers. The stadium was originally built as the home of the San Francisco Giants, who played there from 1960 until moving into Pacific Bell Park (since renamed AT&T Park) in 2000. The 49’ers are looking to move out of the city and into a new stadium that is scheduled to be built in the nearby suburb of Santa Clara in 2015.

Candlestick Park Candlestick Park, San Francisco CAThe stadium is situated at Candlestick Point on the western shore of the San Francisco Bay. Due to its location next to the bay, strong winds often swirl down into the stadium, creating unusual playing conditions. The stadium was enclosed during the winter of 1971–72 for the 49ers, with stands built around the outfield. The result was that the wind speed dropped marginally, but often swirled around throughout the stadium, and the view of the Bay was lost.

Currently, Candlestick Park is the only NFL stadium that began as a baseball-only facility and underwent extensive reconstruction to accommodate football, as evidenced by the stadium’s unusual oblong design that leaves many seats on what was the right-field side of the stadium behind the eastern grandstand of the stadium during football games.

Plans were initiated to construct a new 68,000-seat stadium at Candlestick Point, however in late 2006 the 49ers announced that they would abandon their search for a location in San Francisco and begin to actively pursue the idea of building a stadium in the surrounding suburbs. As a result, San Francisco withdrew its bid for the 2016 Olympics since Candlestick would not be able to handle the Olympics. As a result of Santa Clara’s agreement with the 49’ers, construction of the new stadium was approved and is scheduled to start some time in 2012. The city has not said what they will do with Candlestick Park, although it will most likely be demolished once the 49ers move.

The Beatles performed their final full concert at Candlestick Park on August 29, 1966.
