Levi's Stadium parking issues[edit]

In November 2013, Levi's Stadium and 49ers' officials initially requested the NFL to not schedule any weekday home games during the preseason or regular season — including Monday and Thursday Night Football — during Levi's Stadium's inaugural season, due to parking issues in the Santa Clara area during weekdays.[4] Two months later (January 2014), the Santa Clara City Council approved a two-year deal with the Santa Clara Golf & Tennis Club that would have opened up 10,000 additional parking spaces within walking distance of Levi's Stadium, as well as reimbursed the club $250,000 for each year, which would have enabled the team to host Monday and Thursday night games for both the 2014 and 2015 seasons.[5] However, the NFL decided not to schedule any weeknight prime-time games at Levi's Stadium during the 2014 season, for the exception of the Week 13 Thanksgiving game, until traffic flow within the area is figured out.[6]
