The 49ers and Levi’s are holding a press conference to make a “major announcement” on Wednesday and it isn’t to announce that Jim Harbaugh will be this decade’s answer to Brooke Shields.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports that the press conference will be an announcement of a naming rights deal with Levi Strauss & Co. at the team’s new stadium in Santa Clara. The deal will help pay for the stadium, which is set to open next year.

The financial terms of the deal to name the Niners’ home aren’t known nor is the proposed name for the new stadium. With Miami’s chances of hosting Super Bowl L dimmed by the state legislature coming down against a referendum on a deal to renovate Sun Life Stadium, there’s a good chance that we’ll be looking live at the Field of Jeans in February 2016.

That’s what we’ve got to offer for a name. We’re open to other suggestions in the comments to fill the time until the press conference.
