In 2014, when the 49ers moved to the 68,500-capacity Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, the home of five Super Bowl champion teams and great players including Jerry Rice, Steve Young, and Joe Montana, the development of the featured pregame tailgating area started. The "Faithful Mile" concept was dedicated to the fans to offer pre-game entertainment and a place to gather with friends while tasting food and refreshments before entering the stadium. Along the 60,000-square-foot space are bars, merchandise kiosks, food stands, as well as fun and games presented by 49ers team partners. The Levi's stadium is unlike any other stadium built in the NFL.
"We developed the Faithful Mile to have the feel of a football marketplace outside Levi's Stadium, a special destination where our fans can meet friends before the game for entertainment and celebration," stated Brent Schoeb, Vice President of Corporate Partnership. "Adding the synthetic turf from Global Syn-Turf has given space a distinct football feel that has helped boost fan engagement with our partners and vendors over the last year."
Un-paving the way and providing a cushioned walkway for the hundreds of thousands of fans who visit Levi's Stadium on game days each year is 50,000 square feet of Global Syn-Turf artificial turf. The multi-year partnership with the San Francisco 49ers started in 2017.
"We installed Pro Putt 44 turf as it is easily laid on the hard cement surface without jeopardizing the safety and avoid tripping risks for the Levi's Stadium patrons," says Dave Maronic, a Vice President at Global Syn-Turf. "We needed a fine, clean look with a synthetic turf that could endure thousands of Niners fans every home game and add to their unforgettable experience. Rolling out the ‘green carpet' for 49ers fans is something Global Syn-Turf takes great pride in."
Unlike most major stadiums that use a massive amount of energy and water, Levi's Stadium is different. It is the first NFL football stadium in the United States to gain U.S. Green Building and LEED Gold Certification, a rating system by the U.S. Green Building Council. 85% of the used water is recycled. 1,150 solar panels are installed on top of the nine-story suit tower. The roof featured drought-resistant native California plants that help to cool down the suite tower. Levi's Stadium and Global Syn-Turf, Inc. share a devotion to environmental responsibility and water conservation state-wide efforts.
Global Syn-Turf, Inc. also holds the U.S. Green Building and LEED Certification within the categories of water-efficient landscaping, recycled content and innovative design. The eco-friendly nature of synthetic turf makes its applications sustainable. It required no water and reduces maintenance costs related to mowing and irrigation equipment adding LEED points to the array of building projects.
The partnership expands its scope to the local community. The opening of Levi's stadium opened new opportunities to support Bay Area youth education program; the fact is less likely know to the public. The Denise DeBartolo York Education Center and the Chevron STEM Zone quickly became a home for students 7th through 12th grade interested in science, technology, engineering, art, and math. The center located inside the 49ers Museum offers free-of-charge, comprehensive program. With the 60,000 capacity, it inspires, connects, and engages kids in reaching their full potential and enhancing their critical thinking, communication, problem-solving, collaboration, and creativity along with technical skills.
For efforts in youth education, the 49ers were named 2015 Sports Team of the Year by Beyond Sport. They became a finalist for ESPN Sports Humanitarian Team of the Years 2015-2016.

Despite playing with a backup quarterback with starter Jimmy Garoppolo sidelined for the season, the 49ers offense has shown signs of being productive of late even if it hasn't led to wins.
The defense has generated a league-low three takeaways for the fewest total for the franchise after five games since 1977.
Breida underwent an MRI on Monday that showed a "serious sprain" to his left ankle, according to coach Kyle Shanahan.
Three of San Francisco's five starting offensive linemen - left tackle Joe Staley, center Weston Richburg and right tackle Mike McGlinchey - suffered knee injuries.
After all they've been through, a two-touchdown deficit wasn't going to faze the Los Angeles Chargers.
Matt Breida, among the NFL leaders in rushing, and Alfred Morris both were limited in practice Friday and are listed as questionable.
He was adamant that his strained left calf is not related to his other more serious leg problems of the past year.
Both teams are 1-2 but are trending in different directions. The Chargers' September struggles have continued
Now the team has to move on and prepare for Sunday's road game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
The Niners announced Monday that Garoppolo tore the ACL in his left knee while making a cut late in a loss at Kansas City, sidelining him for the rest of the season.
Quarterback Tom Savage is navigating his way through the 49ers’ offensive playbook ... and the team’s facility.“I don’t where the bathroom is right now,” Savage said Wednesday, a day after he was signed. “And I’m still learning these plays.”Savage, 28, a 2014 fourth-round pick who has made nine NFL starts, was studying papers of offensive notes Wednesday in the locker room when he was approached by reporters. And it’s conceivable he’s preparing himself for an opportunity that will never come.
The transition from overcoming a disheartening loss to preparing for the NFL’s only undefeated team will be brief this week, and the 49ers are on the clock.“There’s no time to sit here and sulk,” head coach Kyle Shanahan said.By early Tuesday afternoon, Shanahan had finished breaking down Monday night’s 33-30 loss in Green Bay and shifted his focus to Sunday’s home game against the Rams (6-0), who are led by quarterback Jared Goff, a Marin Catholic-Kentfield and Cal alum.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh received unprompted support from head coach Kyle Shanahan and cornerback Richard Sherman after the 49ers surrendered 521 yards and had multiple breakdowns in the secondary in a 33-30 loss to the Packers on Monday night."Saleh’s very good at what he does," Shanahan said. "I have a ton of confidence in him. I have a ton of confidence in our scheme."
GREEN BAY, Wis. - Despite their protests to the contrary, the one-win 49ers just aren’t ready for prime time.Six days after the NFL upset the 49ers by flexing them out of Sunday’s scheduled nighttime game against the Rams, the 49ers spent much of Monday night at Lambeau Field taking out their anger on the Packers … before collapsing at closing time.In a wild 33-30 loss to Green Bay, the 49ers were outscored 10-0 in the final two minutes because they couldn’t finish and All-Pro quarterback Aaron Rodgers is an expert in such late-game matters.
GREEN BAY, Wis. - What ankle injury?After he initially was termed doubtful to play Monday by head coach Kyle Shanahan, 49ers running back Matt Breida played against the Packers with his problematic leg and was part of a strong first-half rushing attack.Breida capped a game-opening drive with a 3-yard touchdown run, had 37 yards on eight first-half carries and teamed with surprise backup Raheem Mostert to headline a ground game that had 114 yards and averaged 7.1 yards a carry in the first two quarters.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - No stadium in the NFL is drenched in history as much as Lambeau Field.This is where Bart Starr sneaked across the goal line in the Ice Bowl ... and where ferocious linebacker Ray Nitschke roamed the frozen tundra ... and where Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers authored countless memorable Packers victories in bone-chilling conditions.The 49ers, who play the Packers in Green Bay Monday night, have their share of history at Lambeau. They lost a divisional playoff game there in January 1997, in what turned out to be George Seifert’s last game as the team’s head coach. They also won a sub-freezing wild-card playoff game at Lambeau in January 2014, when Colin Kaepernick outdueled Rodgers.
GREEN BAY, Wis. --Running back Matt Breida and tight end George Kittle, who were both questionable due to leg injuries, will play tonight when the 49ers visit the Packers at Lambeau Field.Breida’s status was most in doubt after he was sidelined with an ankle injury during a 28-18 loss to the Cardinals on Oct. 7 and initially termed doubtful to play by head coach Kyle Shanahan. The 49ers did not promote a running back from the practice squad Monday afternoon, which was strong evidence Breida would play and be backed up by Alfred Morris and Raheem Mostert.
GREEN BAY, Wis. - It appears 49ers running back Matt Breida will play tonight against the Packers at Lambeau Field despite an ankle injury that made his status doubtful early last week.The 49ers did not promote one of their two running backs ...
An extra day might allow Matt Breida to play.After head coach Kyle Shanahan had deemed him “doubtful” to suit up Monday against the Packers, the 49ers’ running back was listed as questionable Saturday with an ankle injury.Breida was limited in practice Friday after he was sidelined for the previous two practices with an injury that forced him out of last Sunday’s 28-18 loss to the Cardinals. Shanahan, who has hailed Breida’s toughness, said he didn’t expect him to make such quick progress.
