The 49ers Will Lose $10 Million Hosting The College Football National Championship

Alabama and Clemson meet Monday night for the fourth straight year in the College Football Playoff, and it’s the third time the National Championship is at stake. Ticket brokers expecting a big payoff are taking a bath, with prices down nearly 75% over the past two weeks. Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, is a haul for the core fan bases of Alabama and Clemson, and travel costs are prohibitive for many.

As the host team for the title game, the San Francisco 49ers are also expected to endure plenty of red ink, to the tune of $8 million to $12 million, according to San Francisco 49ers President Al Guido.
