Peyton Manning's Broncos will visit the West Coast between August 14th and 18th to take on Colin Kaepernick and teammates in what will be a highly anticipated contest in exhibition terms.
During preseason NFL games, most teams will rest their key starters for most of the game but a matchup between the greatest offensive team in 2013 and one of the better defensive teams could certainly draw fan's attention.
The 49ers moved out of their historic Candlestick Park location at the end of last season after over 40 years in the stadium. The team won five Super Bowls and six Conference Championships whilst playing at Candlestick.
San Francisco's new Levi's Stadium was started in 2012 at an approximate cost of $1.2 billion. The stadium will seat 75,000 people, 5,000 more than at Candlestick.
Many former and current players mentioned recently that the conditions at Candlestick were far from ideal and that the team could certainly do with a new home.
The San Francisco 49ers will be hoping that a change of scenery will enable the team to continue their recent success under coach Jim Harbaugh.
