Levi's Stadium is a football stadium in Santa Clara, California, near California's Great America theme park and the Santa Clara Convention Center. The stadium, which serves as the current home of the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League, was opened on July 17, 2014. It is 38.3 miles (62 km) from San Francisco, the farthest distance of any NFL stadium from its team's home city. The stadium is also the new home of college football's annual Fight Hunger Bowl.
On June 8, 2010, voters in Santa Clara, a suburban city just northwest of San Jose, voted to adopt Measure J, which allows the City of Santa Clara to lease land, previously occupied by Great America theme park's overflow parking lot, to the 49ers Stadium Authority to construct a new football stadium, where the San Francisco 49ers would be the primary tenant. The necessary funds were secured on December 13, 2011, allowing construction to start in April 2012.
On December 9, 2013, it was confirmed that Levi's Stadium will host the WWE's WrestleMania 31, on March 29, 2015. This will mark the first time WrestleMania is hosted in Northern California. The area will also host activities throughout the region for the week-long celebration leading up to WrestleMania itself. On December 10, 2013, a press conference was held for the event.
