In recent times, the rise of the Golden State Warriors has seen the popularity of San Francisco as a sports destination skyrocket. 2019 will see the Warriors move out of their Oakland home and into the brand new Chase Centre stadium which promises to see the team go to another level. 

San Francisco and the bay area is home to two baseball (Oakland Athletics & San Francisco Giants) and two football teams (San Francisco 49ers & Oakland Raiders) as well as the Golden State Warriors.

Levi Stadium is a football stadium opened in 2014 in the San Francisco Bay Area. Levi Stadium hosted the 2016 Super Bowl between Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers and is Interestingly one of the dying breed of NFL stadiums to use real grass instead of artificial turf.

General Tips:

Depending on the time of your game, bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen as the Californian sun can really take it out of you and dampen your experience. The stadium itself is new and therefore has top class amenities, however the location of the stadium is a little remote so consider eating/drinking in downtown San Francisco or joining in on a tailgate party.

Alcohol sales stop at the end of the third quarter during 49ers games.

Oracle Park

Address: 24 Willie Mays Plaza

Location: San Francisco, CA

Team: San Francisco Giants MLB

Capacity:

Baseball - 42,000

Opened in 2000, Oracle Park is a baseball stadium located in South Beach San Francisco, California. 

In 2004, the stadium was fitted with 122 wireless access points covering the whole stadium. At the time it was the biggest wireless hotspot in the world.

General Tips:

The stadium is located very close to the water so you are likely to experience the infamous Bay Area Fog. We suggest you bring a jacket even if on seemingly sunny and warm days. Given the stadiums proximity to the water, a “splash hit” is when a ball is out out of the stadium and into the water. When it’s a Giants player pulling it off, the 42,000-strong crowd will be very excited.

21st Amendment Brewery is a popular pre and post game food and drink spot that will save you a few bucks on stadium prices.

As the stadium is located in a popular part of the city, public transport is well connect to the area. From downtown San Francisco, the Muni Metro service to the Ballpark is available daily on the E Embarcadero, N Judah and T Third lines. Muni provides additional services on game days beginning two hours before a game until 20 minutes after the start of the game.

Outside food is not permitted within Oracle Park. There is a massive range of food options within the stadium for you to try however!
