    49ers will host Super Bowl L

    BOSTON -- The Super Bowl's golden year will feature a return to the Golden State -- the Bay Area won its bid to host Super Bowl 50 in a vote of NFL owners on Tuesday.

    The Super Bowl, scheduled for February 7, 2016, will be played at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, which will become the new home of the 49ers in 2014 after one final season at Candlestick Park.

    49ers CEO Jed York first tweeted the long-anticipated announcement, and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell made the news official.

    The Bay Area was chosen over Miami, which has played host to 10 previous Super Bowls. Miami's attempt to host the 50th Super Bowl was dealt a crippling blow this month with a failed attempt to provide public money for necessary stadium renovations.

    Meanwhile, one of the major selling points for the Bay Area bid is its more than 50-percent completed stadium.

    Levi's Stadium is a $1.2 billion stadium that will seat 68,500 fans for regular-season games. The capacity will expand to 75,000 for the Super Bowl.

    "All we lacked in the past was a stadium, and now we have that," 49ers co-chair John York said.

    California has hosted 11 Super Bowls, including the first championship game after the NFL-AFL merger. Super Bowl I was played at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in 1967.

    But California has been shut out of Super Bowls since 2003 at San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium. The Bay Area hosted one previous Super Bowl. The 49ers were a 38-16 winner over the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl XIX at Stanford Stadium in 1985.

    San Francisco will serve as the hub of most of the Super Bowl activity leading up to the 2016 game. The NFL Experience will be staged at San Francisco's Moscone Center, and the Embarcadero will be transformed into the main street of Super Bowl activity.

    But it will be an entire Bay Area production. More than 22,000 hotel rooms have already been set aside. Official and unofficial events will span from Napa to Carmel and to all sides of the Bay.

    Oakland officials have gotten involved, and York said the Raiders supported the Super Bowl effort. Cal, Stanford and San Jose State have volunteered to provide practice facilities for the participating teams.

    "There's going to be an immense amount going on in San Francisco, and we'll have public transportation that will be able to get people from the East Bay to the South Bay, up to the NFL Experience," said Daniel Lurie, founder and CEO of Tipping Point Community and head of the Bay Area Super Bowl bid committee.

    "We're going to make it real easy for people to get down to Santa Clara with Super Bowl trains, and there will be Super Bowl lanes to get people down there on Sunday."

    The 26-member bid committee also included Condoleezza Rice, Charles Schwab, George Seifert, Steve Young and Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo!

    The committee last week announced it raised $30 million in pledges from area businesses. Twenty-five percent of the funds raised for the Super Bowl Bid will go directly to charitable causes to help children and families living in poverty in the Bay Area.

    Lurie and committee member Joe D'Alessandro emphasized innovation and fan experience to the owners during the 15-minute presentation Tuesday to the league's owners.

    Levi's Stadium will include high-speed wireless capabilities for all 75,000 fans in attendance. Lurie said the goal is for the Bay Area to earn multiple Super Bowls in the future.

    "We are not in this to host just one," Lurie said. "We'd love to prove ourselves and once we've done that, which I believe we will, then we'd love to get into the rotation, along with Miami and New Orleans. Miami and New Orleans are great places to host. We feel we can be a great host city, as well, alongside of them."

    Is it? Which is why I was laughed at for predicting (correctly) a +9 win season and the playoffs before the 2011 season. Makes sense.

    As much talent as we have, as bright a future as it seems we have, as wide open a window as you think it is, we aren't guaranteed SB berths for the next 5 years-ish guys, don't hold your breath.

    I know they're not guaranteed, which is why I used the word "hope".
