49ers will play next two home games at State Farm Stadium

USA Today Sports

The 49ers will play their next two home games at State Farm Stadium, the home of their NFC West rival Cardinals.

San Francisco announced the move on Monday after Santa Clara County enacted restrictions on contact sports and visitors to the county for the next three weeks.

“The San Francisco 49ers have come to an agreement with the National Football League and Arizona Cardinals which allows the 49ers to host their Weeks 13 and 14 home games against the Buffalo Bills and Washington Football Team at State Farm Stadium in Arizona,” the 49ers said in a statement. “The Cardinals organization, State Farm Stadium and League officials have been supportive and accommodating as we work through the many logistical issues involved in relocating NFL games.”

The 49ers do not yet have a practice facility finalized, noting in their statement that they’ll share those plans later.

San Francisco has one more home game scheduled in Week 17 against Seattle, which could be played at Levi’s Stadium if the county’s restrictions are indeed lifted after three weeks. If not, the Cardinals are on the road against the Rams to end the regular season, so State Farm Stadium would be available.

  1. This has been the season from hell as a 9ER fan

    Covid, injures, no attendance is admissible, and now the team can’t practice in its facilities or play in its own stadium. Man this sucks

  2. Where is “State Farm Stadium”? Do people expect us to memorize constant stadium name changes?

  3. Time to move permanently… San Diego would love to have a team, and they have a FANTASTIC fan base, and there’s no sarcasm in that statement. They got robbed and deserve a franchise

  4. Sorry but this isn’t youth sports. It’s billion dollar industry with some of the best protocols and testing in the world going on daily. It’s idiotic to make the team leave the state to host people in sterile stadium. I get no one is above the law but this is not logical.

  6. The Santa Clara 49ers formerly of San Francisco are hosting the Washington Football Team at State Farm Stadium in Arizona. Ok…

    so you’re saying there’s a chance Jake Fromm could get the start in State Farm Stadium”

    Haha, thats creative and awesome, thank for the chuckle.

  8. just move the team to san diego, nice weather, low case count, lots of business opportunities, Spanos screwed the city big time.

  9. As a So Cal resident…lease remember the ticket guarantee and unsold seats that required business to buy them to have blackouts lifted in SD. Chargers have a weak fanbase in SD and LA.

  10. Will they have some fans in attendance like the Cardinals do…??? If so, as an Arizona fan, I would Love to attend and cheer on the Niners! They are a class organization and I’m happy the Cardinals were able to accommodate…
