Candlestick Park to host one last 49er dance on December 23 vs Falcons

For the millions of Northern California football fans who've grown up watching the 49ers, Candlestick Park is nothing short of hallowed ground.

The 69,732-seat mostly concrete semi-oval has hosted a number of amazing and very well documented moments in 49er history that have served as landmarks of success throughout a run that began at the park by the inner Bay in 1960.

Sure, Candlestick Park may not be the most comfortable venue in the National Football League, and it was originally designed for professional baseball, but those who've been calling “The Stick” their home turf will likely be choked up when it is eventually demolished the day following Super Bowl XLVIII.

As of now, only one home game remains on the 49ers schedule. They will not host a playoff game this postseason, so fans can go ahead and treat this as the final opportunity to witness their beloved team perform in a rustic structure that has carved out a place in the hearts of fans over the years.

Sportswriters often have inroads as to where to go and who to talk to about getting affordable tickets to big-time games. I would encourage all fans interested in attending the swansong of this splendid stadium to visit this site in order to access an inventory of cheap tickets and a ticket buying process that is easy and 100% guaranteed.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick set the bar very high with his performances in last year's postseason, and although defensive coordinators have begun to figure out ways to slow the dynamo down, he is clearly just beginning to tap into the reservoir of his potential.

Many fans in their 30s and 40s grew up attending 49er games in the 1980s with parents or other folks who were loving enough to expose them to one of the most successful franchises in all of professional sports. The efforts of Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Roger Craig, Steve Young and a host of others forever live as memories in the minds of those who bleed red and gold.

Soon, it will be time to make new memories in a brand-new, billion-dollar stadium designed and built with modern amenities and an environmental consciousness in mind. For now, fans can look forward to one last party that will serve as a sendoff for this flawed yet beloved park that has played host to some of the most entertaining moments of history in a city with global respect and admiration.
