49erFaithfulUK – Podcast Episode 15 – 49ers Studios

To help cope with the lack of newsworthy stories whilst patiently waiting for the NFL Draft to arrive, the gang hang out with some of the 49ers organisation’s unsung heroes, the great guys from 49ers Studios. We chat to them about the exciting new projects they plan to bring us throughout the off-season and beyond, as well as what we can expect from the facilities at the new Levi’s Stadium, and also reminisce about their time spent over in London last summer.

Carolina Panthers Playoff Meetup

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Hi Guys…

As you all know, the 49ers have progressed into the divisional round of the playoffs. The schedules have been kind to us and given us a reasonably early start of a 6:00 pm start against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday evening.

With that in mind, and recognising that this is very short notice (we have no say over NFL scheduling!), we are looking to hold an official 49erFaithful UK meetup for the divisional game THIS SUNDAY.

The proposed venue is Shooters Sports Bar in Manchester City Centre.

This is a different venue to where we met for the Superbowl last year.

We are looking to get as MANY people as POSSIBLE to attend, and in order to facilitate this, we have booked a 9 seat minibus to pick up people and bring them back to and from the venue. This service will include Pick ups and drop-offs in Greater Manchester Area, Liverpool, East Midlands Birmingham and Leicester. If you can make it to either of these pick up/drop off points, we can take you to and from the venue for a nominal fee to cover hire of the minibus and petrol etc.

We do understand that this is extremely short notice, but it would be a massive occasion for us to have as many people as possible. We understand that people have work commitments etc the following day, and that is why we have decided to lay on transport where feasibly possible, on the principle that if it was a late game, you’d be awake for it anyway by the time you arrive home.

It is really imperative that you can attend this event, it would really help solidify our status as not only an active 49er booster club, but also as one of the biggest and by far the best UK fan group of any NFL team. We feel solidarity is really important and we attend one event as a group.

This is OUR group guys, so please support our own cause…we don’t function without the contributions of each and everyone of you.

There will be more announcements coming soon to highlight schedules and times etc.

Please do your best to attend…it’s going to be another memorable event for the 49erfaithful UK and even more memorable with all your friendly faces out in force.

From Elm Park to the Madejski. From Candlestick to Levis. Out with the old, in with the new, again.

It was March 1987, the sun was shining, excitement filled the air, I was 6 years old, I had sweets from the corner shop, I was allowed in the pub with my Grandad and uncles, I had a couple of glasses of coke, I eagerly read my matchday programme and sat patiently. I still remember to this day, the exact moment I entered the terrace and caught the green, green grass of Elm Park, the rusty old stand, the brightly painted blue barriers and the metal fence keeping us in. The players were merely feet away from me. I was hooked, right there. Reading won and a beautiful and often painful relationship was formed.
