Kezar Stadium

Kezar Stadium, the one-time home of the AAFC and NFL San Francisco 49ers, was built between 1922 and 1925 in the southeast corner of Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, California. The old, 59,000 seat stadium was demolished in 1989, and replaced with a modern, 10,000 seat stadium.

The 49ers began using the stadium upon their founding in 1946. The 49ers left the stadium after the 1970 season for Candlestick Park. The Oakland Raiders played their 1960 American Football League season at Kezar. The new stadium is mostly used for High School football games, including hosting the annual San Francisco City Championship Game.

In 2004, Kezar became home to the San Francisco Freedom, a professional cricket team within the newly formed U.S.-wide Pro Cricket league.
