At 3Com Park you can expect better than average stadium food. Actually 3Com prides its self on the food and vendors it provides. Aside from the regular hot dogs, sausages, pizza and hamburgers, 3Com offers a nice selection of finer cuisine too.3Com's gourmet foods include, garlic fries from Gordon Biersch Restaurant and dim sum and pasta from several local Asian and Italian restaurants.
The largest crowd at 3com was during the 1996 game against Greenbay on January first. The 49ers lost that game 27-17. The total attendance for the game was 69,311 people
3Com Park is 120 feet high
The 49ers played their first game in 3Com on October 10, 1971 vs. Rams.
3Com park was formally the home of the Giants too, however they no longer will be playing there
In 1978 3Com park switched from artificial to natural turf
Seating Capacity for football is 70,497
The 49ers have been hoping to build a new stadium for years now. Unfortunately those plans had to be postponed because of the whole Eddie Debartlo situations. Denise, Eddie's sister and current owner of the team is still saying the 49ers are interested in a new stadium, however she cautions that the 49ers will wait until the price is right. Most fans in the bay area would be happy with a simple renovation of 3Com. It's not to much to ask, as the stadium grows old and gets delapitated. In the mean time though nobody can really be sure what the status of the stadium actually is.
Weather & Time
The weather at the game can vary greatly. Always be prepared for windy conditions. It is suggested that you bring a wind resistant jacket to the game even on sunny days.
