Financial terms of the deals were not disclosed.

The first game scheduled for Levi's Stadium is Aug. 2 between Major League Soccer clubs San Jose Earthquakes and Seattle Sounders. The first regular-season Niners game is Sept. 14 when the team hosts the Chicago Bears in a nationally televised event on NBC's Sunday Night Football.
