The San Francisco 49ers will host the Denver Broncos in the first preseason game ever to be played at Levi’s® Stadium.
Following the home matchup against Peyton Manning and the defending AFC Champions, the 49ers will host another AFC West foe, the San Diego Chargers. The second home game against the Chargers will take place on August 24th at 1 p.m. PT in front of a national television audience on FOX.
The preseason matchup against the Broncos marks the 36th preseason contest between the two teams. Denver holds a 19-16 advantage in the all-time preseason series. The Broncos handed the 49ers their only preseason defeat in 2013, a 10-6 road victory in the preseason opener.
After losing in Super Bowl XLVIII to the Seattle Seahawks, Denver has added several big-name players to its roster in the early stages of the offseason. San Francisco will soon compete against a Super Bowl contender with four key additions: defensive end DeMarcus Ware, cornerback Aqib Talib, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and safety T.J. Ward.
The 49ers will face all four AFC West teams in the 2014 regular season. San Francisco will host San Diego and play Denver on the road.
The 2014 regular season schedule is expected to be released in the coming weeks.
