NaVorro Bowman Turns to Coaching, a Levi's® Stadium Sellout, Football a Fan of World Cup

Posted Jul 1, 2014

Also in this edition of Niners Daily: Quarterback Colin Kaepernick teases a new tattoo, and NFL teams support Team USA in the World Cup.

Four headlines to start your morning...

1. 'Bo' the Coach

NaVorro Bowman, who is rehabbing a major knee injury suffered in January's NFC title game, returned to the field over the weekened to instruct kids during his second annual football camp at his alma mater: Suitland High School in Forestville, Md.
 

2. A Levi's® Stadium Sellout

There are ways to try to snag single-game tickets to San Francisco 49ers games, and they're detailed here. But, as team chief operating officer Al Guido told us, the Dallas Cowboys and New York's Jets and Giants each failed to sell out their new venue in advance of its inaugural season. Levi's® Stadium hasn't hosted an event yet, but it's already ahead of the game.

Guido also had this to say to 49ers.com senior reporter Taylor Price:

"Without the fan’s support, without them taking a leap of faith in terms of what they were buying was worth it, this would never have been a reality. We have a $1.3 billion-dollar venue and without the support of the fans, we wouldn’t be here. We really wouldn’t be here. The stadium wouldn’t exist – it’s their stadium. We’re just the stewards of it that work for the team.

"We kept telling them, ‘Let us tell you about the building. I believe that you’ll find the value.’ And they did. It’s going to be a really neat moment when we announce something that’s never been done before, especially as it relates to a seat-license campaign in a new stadium. Dallas, the New York Jets and Giants – none of them sold out every single seat before they opened up their venue and we’re going to be able to say that we did and that’s a testament to the fans."
