The San Francisco 49ers announced the new Santa Clara Stadium will include commemorative bricks. The bricks are a way of generating revenue while also increasing the fan’s game gameday experience. The commemorative bricks can be purchased by the general public ranging from $175 to $375, which includes the fan’s name and personal message on the brick. The bricks are expected to go on sale on March 1 according to the San Jose Mercury News.
The yearlong sales campaign is expected to generate $2.5 million to $3 million, with the profit going toward funding the $1.2 billion stadium. The bricks will include an extra replica for fans to keep as a memorabilia, while special display cases with laser-engraved 49ers logos can be bought for an additional $54.95 to $69.95 depending on size.
The bricks are a great way to show a fan’s dedication, passion, and loyalty to a team while helping fund the stadium. Fund Raisers Ltd., a Boise, Idaho based company will market and sell the bricks on behalf of the Santa Clara Stadium authority. The bricks will be 8 inches long, 2 1/4 inches thick, and either 4 or 8 inches wide- allowing up to six lines of text.
The bricks will be available for purchase on a “virtual brick website,” which includes a $5 fee for online orders.
