The San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League (NFL) have partnered with sports entertainment company Topgolf to install a Swing Suite at Levi’s Stadium.
The Topgolf Swing Suite will be inserted in the 68,500-seater venue’s Michael Mina Tailgate loft event space, enabling visitors to play a variety of interactive, virtual games on a simulator. The area will be equipped with lounge seating, high-definition televisions and food and beverage service.
The 49ers are the first NFL team to fit their stadium with a Topgolf Swing Suite, which will not provide a view of the playing field. Fans will be able to book out the area for social gatherings or private practice sessions.
"Levi's Stadium and Topgolf share a common focus of providing unique experiences and high-end amenities for our customers, making the new Topgolf Swing Suite in the Mina Tailgate lofts a natural fit for both organisations," said Jamie Brandt, 49ers vice president of sales and service.
"Levi's Stadium was designed to be a relevant year-round attraction for the Bay Area and the addition of Topgolf will be a great complement to the annual calendar of events and daily activities already programmed for the venue."
"We're thrilled to work with an iconic venue like Levi's Stadium to provide a new, interactive entertainment experience for 49ers fans and Bay Area residents and visitors," said Ron Powers, president of Topgolf Swing Suite. "This is the first permanent Topgolf amenity in a professional football stadium, and we know golfers and non-golfers alike will have a great time playing a variety of games on the industry-leading Full Swing simulator."
