SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - A person with direct knowledge of the San Francisco 49ers' stadium project says the team is unlikely to host weeknight games at new Levi's Stadium next year in the inaugural season of the venue.
That would mean no appearances on ''Monday Night Football'' or in a Thursday night game at Santa Clara next season. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because the NFL schedule isn't released until spring and no decisions have been formally announced by the league or the team.
Part of the thinking, the person said, is to give everyone from stadium operations personnel, law enforcement, local businesses, support services and parking facilities time to get accustomed to traffic flow and other challenges. The first season in the $1.2 billion stadium will be a work in progress.
