San Francisco 49ers partner with Yahoo for new stadium 

The 49ers and Yahoo jointly announced Monday that Yahoo will be the exclusive online sports content, social networking, and photo and video sharing provider for the team and the new Santa Clara stadium.

The 10-year deal begins in 2014 when the 49ers move into the site in Santa Clara. Yahoo will provide in-stadium entertainment with its photo and video sharing site, Flickr, and Yahoo Sports fantasy football.

The announcement about the Yahoo deal comes shortly after the team announced the naming rights of the stadium went to San Francisco-based Levi's.

"The 49ers are thrilled to partner with Yahoo!, a locally-based, global brand that shares our vision for Levi's Stadium," 49ers CEO Jed York said in a statement. "Yahoo! is a tremendous example of Silicon Valley innovation at work. Their experience in servicing the fan and wealth of resources will serve integral roles as we strive to present an unparalleled experience to visitors of Levi's Stadium."

Yahoo will have entitlement and branding rights to the stadium's Fantasy Football lounge and two adjacent viewing platforms in the stadium's suite tower. It will also be integrated into the in-stadium broadcast and digital media for fans.
