San Francisco Candlestick Park Naming Rights, Proposition C (November 2009)
Proposition C, if enacted, will repeal Proposition H, which was passed in 2004. Proposition H that required the 49ers football stadium to be named Candlestick Park. Proposition C will allow the sale of stadium naming rights could be sold. 50% of the proceeds received by the city by the sale of the naming rights would be used to fund directors at city recreation centers. Gavin Newsom supports Proposition C.
San Francisco Supervisor Bevan Dufty also supports Proposition C.
One reason the issue is coming up now is because the 49ers are thinking about moving their team to Santa Clara.
