It looks like some 49ers fans decided to rub it in that they’ve won multiple Super Bowls, while the Seahawks haven’t.
According to the Sports Kings, some Niners fans resurrected the billboard shown above, outside of CenturyLink Field in Seattle.
The funding for the billboard came from a crowd funding site where they were looking for a minimum of $7,000 to purchase the ad space. As of Wednesday at 5:20 PT, they had raised over $7,700.
While the trash talk is fun, the 49ers fans are actually doing good with their trolling, and donating anything over the requested $7,000 to a charity of 49ers fans’ choosing.
The original description for the funding is below.
After lots of discussion in the 49er Faithful group (and based on the great idea of Michael Narvios), a lot of us have decided to counter the Seahawk’s plan of flying a plane with a banner around Candlestick by placing a billboard showing 49er pride right in Seattle, preferably by Century Link Field.
This group has been created to raise funds to place a billboard within half a mile of Century Link Field. Seahawk fans raised 2k, we can raise a lot more. We have contacted companies in Seattle with multiple billboard ad locations. We are looking to raise about 7-8k to keep our ad there for at least 1 month, all during December and some of January for their playoff games.
A GoFundMe account has been set up, everything will be transparent, and tells you what our goal is and how much we raised. Screenshots will be posted of where the billboard will be placed, of all costs, and constant posts on where we are with the funds, as well as photos of where we plan to place the billboard. We can even generate some press with this! All extra funds will be donated to a charity we can vote on. Not any money will be used for this site or for anything but the billboard and for charity. If we do not receive the goal of 7k, nobody will be charged. The goal will give us 4 weeks of ad placement.

Let’s show em Shehawks where the real faithful fans are!
Since the money was raised, they’ll be purchasing one month of ad space that will be up during the final stretch of the season, as well as into the playoffs – where the Seahawks will likely have Home Field Advantage throughout.
