The San Francisco 49ers and Intel Corporation announced Wednesday that Intel will become a Founding Partner and a preferred technology provider for Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.
The multiyear agreement is set to begin in 2014.
As part of the sponsorship agreement, the 49ers will work with vendors to integrate Intel solutions and products for client, server, embedded and security technologies inside the stadium.
In addition, Intel will have exclusive branding and naming rights to one of the most heavily used pedestrian areas at the northwest corner of the venue, currently referred to as the “Northwest Plaza.”
This area will be re-named the “Intel Plaza” and feature a fan experience zone where fans can connect and communicate using the latest products with Intel Inside.
The agreement also includes an integrated media package that includes radio and television advertising, various hospitality assets, and the opportunity to host events at Levi’s Stadium with customers and strategic partners throughout the year.
The new stadium, which lies just a few miles from Intel’s headquarters at the Robert Noyce Building in the heart of Silicon Valley, is expected to be a showcase for technology.
Levi’s Stadium will be among the smartest in the world with an adaptable technology infrastructure, scalable hardware, enhanced game-day experiences and “bring your own device” opportunities.
Levi’s Stadium will not only be the new home to the San Francisco 49ers, but it will also serve as one of the world’s best outdoor sports and entertainment venues.
