Joe Montana, Dan Marino to Play Candlestick Finale

Check out the best photos from Joe Montana's legendary career at Candlestick Park.

Joe Montana will say goodbye to Candlestick Park in his own way.

The San Francisco 49ers Hall of Fame quarterback is headlining a flag-football game scheduled at The 'Stick for July 12. Tickets go on sale May 10.

Montana will be joined by fellow former 49ers Jerry Rice, Roger Craig and Dwight Clark, among others.

Miami Dolphins Hall of Famer Dan Marino, whom Montana bested in Super Bowl XIX at Stanford Stadium, will lead the opposing team of former NFLers.

No. 16 started his 49ers career in 1979, eight years after the organization moved from Kezar Stadium to Candlestick. He played his home games there in 13 of his 15 pro seasons.

Montana was unable to attend Candlestick's finale when, in Week 16 last season, alumni were treated to linebacker NaVorro Bowman's history-sealing touchdown return.

The 49ers will start the inaugural season at Levi's® Stadium in Santa Clara with a preseason game against the AFC Champion Denver Broncos on Aug. 17.
