Google Pledges $2 Million Dollars for Super Bowl 50 Being Held in the Bay Area

June 6, 2014 - Written By Brad Gesullo

Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara California, will be the new home to the San Fransisco 49ers. The stadium is set to open on July 11th, just in time for the 49ers home opener. This brand new stadium will not only host the 49ers home games, but it will also be host Super Bowl 50, which is set to take place on February 7th 2016.

Now Super Bowl’s can be pretty costly to a city that is hosting it. For instance, Super Bowl 48 that was held at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J cost $17.7 million, which covered to cost of things like security, mass transit, local promotions and more. Super Bowl 50 is two years away, but it is never too early to start preparing for something like the Super Bowl. With Super Bowl 50 being held in the Bay Area, Google and other big name tech companies, like Apple and Intel, from the area have all pledged to give at least $2 million in cash and other services. Together the Super Bowl 50 committee has raised $40 million!  It is great to see Google trying to help make sure that Super Bowl 50 will be a great event for the Bay Area, considering that this is the first Super Bowl being held in the Northern California area since Super Bowl 19 in 1985. Google sees how big of an event this will be for the Silicon Valley area. Now in the past Google has played Super Bowl commercials on Youtube for everyone to see. During last year’s Super Bowl Google ran a sale in the Google Play Music store for all of the songs that were played during the halftime show!  I am pretty sure that they will have a lot more to do with Super Bowl 50.   Hopefully with all of this support  the Bay Area have an amazing Super Bowl for everyone to enjoy!
