Benefits of Season Tickets

Before we get into our guide on how to buy season tickets for the 49ers, we thought it would be beneficial to do a quick rundown of the benefits of having season tickets.

Price Stability

Season tickets are a flat fee per game, so you won’t have to pay extra money for games that have increased importance or higher demand

Access to Playoff tickets

Season ticket holders are given the first right of refusal for playoff tickets before they go on sale to the general public

NFL Perks

The league offers a few perks of its own to season ticket holders, including free access to NFL RedZone, a discount at the NFL’s online shop and access to the league’s Ticket Exchange

Team Perks

The San Francisco 49ers have one of the best season ticket member benefits in all of professional sports – unlimited free concessions. The Niners are the first professional team to offer something like this to their season ticket holders, and this is quite a fantastic benefit for season ticket holders because concessions are usually extremely pricey at sporting events. The member-inclusive menu includes 15 of the team’s most popular concession items including beef and vegan hotdogs, sausages, garlic fries, soft drinks, coffee and bottled water. 

How to Purchase 49ers Season Tickets

If you’re interested in buying season tickets to the 49ers, you’re in luck, as the team does not currently have a season ticket waiting list which means you can purchase season tickets with relative ease and a fast turnaround. 

Those who are interested in Niners tickets can fill out an electronic form through the 49ers website, and a representative from the team’s ticketing department will get back to you regarding ticket pricing and availability. You can also book an appointment with a ticketing executive directly through the team’s website as well.  

Season Ticket Pricing Information

The 49ers have already released their season ticket pricing information for the upcoming 2020 campaign, which can be found here. Season ticket prices start at just $79 per game for seats in the upper deck and range up to $225 per game for sections abutting the 20-yard line. Club seating will cost between $349 and $400 per ticket for each game.

If you take a closer look at the seat map provided above, you’ll notice that the 49ers utilize something called an “SBL” which has a separate price on top of the cost of tickets. SBL stands for stadium builder’s license, also commonly referred to as a personal seat license, which is a one-time payment made by season ticket holders to secure the right to purchase season tickets. As you can tell from the map, SBLs represent a pretty heavy upfront cost for potential season ticket buyers, however, the 49ers offer three different payment options which include the ability to split the cost over two years or finance the SBL purchase over a ten-year period. 

SBL purchases are mandatory for anyone who wishes to buy 49ers season tickets. Those who purchase SBLs have the exclusive right to their seats if they continue to pay for season tickets, and SBL holders may sell or transfer their licenses at any time if they so choose.

On-Sale Dates

Season tickets for the 2020 campaign are currently on sale now. Current season ticket holders must pay for their tickets in full by mid-February. 

If you opt to finance your SBL purchase through the team, your payment is due no later than March 1. 

E-tickets for each home game are sent to season ticket holders 72 hours before each game.
