In addition to the 80,000 app downloads, more than half of all season ticket holders have linked their seats to the app, says Williams, allowing the team to know when they arrive for a game and which concessions they’re purchasing.

Fans have already used more than 5.1 terabytes of mobile data, the equivalent of roughly 18 million 300-kilobyte images. During the Niners’ first preseason game against the Denver Broncos, fans used 20 percent more data than what was used during the last Super Bowl, he said.

Mobile data in that quantity requires massive infrastructure to support it, and Levi’s has partnered with Comcast to try and accommodate heavy use. Levi’s has a Wi-Fi access box for every 100 seats in the stadium and more than 70 miles of Wi-Fi cabling.

With everything in place for a nationally televised game, Sunday will mark the end of preseason for Levi’s Stadium, too.
