The 49ers' brand-new stadium is struggling today
The $1.3 billion, brand-new home of San Francisco 49ers underwent some struggles Sunday.
Fans and players at Levi's Stadium for an NFL preseason contest between the Niners and the San Diego Chargers were treated to some less-than-green replacement turf that caused players to lose footing.
As C.J. Fogler's gif demonstrates below, Sunday's new grass didn't fare much better.
Adding insult to injury, a San Jose Mercury News reporter noted one of the stadium's new escalators had broken down.
The up escalator at #LevisStadium is broken. Already. Insane.— Jimmy Durkin (@Jimmy_Durkin) August 24, 2014
It could be a bit of an uphill climb to get the kinks sorted out at the Field Of Jeans just yet.
