Want to see yourself and your buddies on the big screen at Levi's Stadium? One of the facility's features will be booths in which fans can upload their pictures to Flickr, which could then be used as part of a gallery displayed on the stadium screens on game days.
The feature is part of a partnership announced today between the 49ers and Yahoo!, which operates Flickr, Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football and other sites that will be part of the fan experience at the technologically ambitious stadium. The deal between the 49ers and Sunnyville-based Yahoo! is for 10 years.
"Yahoo! is a tremendous example of Silicon Valley innovation at work," 49ers CEO Jed York said in a statement. "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."
According to the release, the agreements gives Yahoo! entitlement and branding rights to the Fantasy Football lounge, and its two adjacent viewing platforms, located in the stadium's suite tower, as well as integration into the in-stadium fan experience and broadcast and digital media.
Terms of the deal were not announced. The 49ers also have partnered Violin Memory, Brocade, NRG Energy, Sony and SAP at the new stadium. Last month they announced a 20-year, $220 million naming rights deal with Levi Strauss.
