Saying Farewell to Candlestick

Posted Dec 17, 2013

As the Candlestick era comes to a close, we celebrate the memories made at the historic venue.

As the Candlestick era comes to a close with the final regular season game scheduled for December 23, 2013, a Monday Football game against the Atlanta Falcons, we look back on the great memories made at the historic venue.

Upload your favorite photos on Twitter or Instagram using #FarewellCandlestick and you could be featured in our fan photo gallery or below in an animated post on Instagram.

The 49ers players also shared their thoughts on Candlestick Park, their favorite memories there and what it will mean to see it go.

RB ANTHONY DIXON:

"There's a lot of history. you think of all the players who were on the field before us."

G ADAM SNYDER:

"Candlestick's got so much tradition. The feel of the guys who played there before us is there. There jerseys are up on the wall. I think the fans have a special place in their hearts for Candlestick."

LB NAVORRO BOWMAN:

"It's humbling just to have so much history come before you and know what the fans are used to and what the organization is used to. It makes you understand what kind of team you're going to be a part of and what type of football is known to be played. It's known for winning."

T ANTHONY DAVIS:

"I get chills just talking about it. It's not the best looking stadium, but there's so much history there. It's an honor to be able to play in it, the last year it will be here. I don't take that for granted."

All week, we'll also be sharing your memories of The 'Stick. Use the hashtag #FarewellCandlestick on Twitter, Instagram or Vine and check the deck below for you posts.
