A stadium proposal for the San Francisco 49ers in Santa Clara, California, is apparently planning a facility that could fit two home teams, according to ABC7, leading to speculation that the Niners and Oakland Raiders could move to Santa Clara together.
This could make the proposal more attractive to Santa Clara voters who would have to put less of their tax dollars into the stadium if another team were there to offset some of the supposed $937 million in costs it will take to erect the thing.
"We have no plans to share the Santa Clara stadium with another team. That's just not something that we plan to do and we're not working on it," 49er spokesperson Lisa Lang told ABC7.
But if it would help the stadium get built, that all could change quickly, of course.
