The San Francisco 49ers and Yahoo said today they had signed a 10-year agreement that will make Yahoo “the exclusive online sports content, social networking, and photo and video sharing partner” for the team and its new Levi’s Stadium, set to open in 2014 in Santa Clara, Calif. The deal will, among other things, provide the purple portal a prime spot for a Fantasy Football Lounge and viewing area, and will encourage fans to upload photos to Flickr with the chance that they may show up on the stadium’s big screens during the game.
