San Francisco 49ers, Santa Clara Reach Deal

Posted: Updated:
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - The San Francisco 49ers are a step closer to moving to Santa Clara after the team and city officials reached a deal on how to finance the building of a new stadium.

In a closed session Tuesday, the two sides agreed on a financing package for a proposed 68,500-seat stadium.

City officials say details of the proposal will be released on May 29, before the June 2 City Council meeting.

Santa Clara residents will still get to decide on the agreement. A citywide vote is expected in March. An environmental-impact report must also be completed.

The 49ers announced more than two years ago they wanted to move to Santa Clara, saying they would like a new stadium built by 2014.

    Remember the old Nike ad from Tiger Woods' uber-dominant days, when he famously told the golfing world it was all about the majors? Well, the older and wiser Woods might disagree with his younger, brasher self, now that Woods has ended the longest victory drought of his professional career.
