49ers plan to bid on 50th Super Bowl 

With their new stadium breaking ground in Santa Clara this week, the San Francisco 49ers reportedly plan to bid on Super Bowl L for 2016.

The 49ers hope the team’s new $1.02 facility would host the 50th Super Bowl, a team source told the Sacramento Bee on Friday. And if the team did not get the event, it would bid on the 2016 game.

The 49ers are planning for the new stadium, which will hold 68,500 seats and can expand to 75,000, to be open in 2014. The bidding process for the game will begin this summer with a vote expected at the NFL owners’ meetings next May.

The 2013 Super Bowl is scheduled for New Orleans with the 2014 game in East Rutherford, N.J., and the 2015 event in Glendale, Ariz.
