Levis expected to land naming rights for new 49ers stadium

levisAccording to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, Levis is expected to land the naming rights for the San Francisco 49ers new Santa Clara stadium.

The 49ers and Levi’s will make an announcement later this morning during which a naming-rights deal is expected between the San Francisco-based jeans manufacturer and the 49ers. The team is set to open its new, $1.2 billion stadium next year, and a naming-rights deal is one of the ways the team will pay for the facility.

I can’t wait to hear what kind of nickname Chris Berman will come up with.  Ok, I’m kidding.
