We’re thrilled to announce a new partnership with the San Francisco 49ers, which coincides with the larger Yahoo sponsorship of the team as it celebrates its inaugural season in Levi’s Stadium.
All year, Flickr photographers will be at the stadium shooting photos of the 49ers Faithful, some of the most passionate and proud fans in the National Football League. As the official photo-sharing site of the 49ers, Flickr is the premier photo destination for fans to get exclusive access to 49ers photos, ultimate fan pics, and it has a powerful mobile app to capture and share photos throughout the game.
Flickr photographers are engaging with fans at the Faithful Mile, an activation with Yahoo Sports and Yahoo Fantasy Football located near the entrance of the stadium. Fans are dressing up in gear and giving their best for their free digital souvenir.
Photographers are also circulating through the stadium, capturing some of the best moments and most interesting fans as they explore the new venue.
We’re curating our favorite photos from the group to display on monitors throughout the Yahoo Sports Zone, a lounge where fans can keep tabs on Fantasy Sports and see an updated Flickr River of photos.
For lucky fans, we’re selecting a small number of the best photos to be displayed on the in-stadium Videoboard, enormous LED displays that show all the action.
Fans can get involved by taking photos on their phones or their own cameras and tagging them with #NinersYodel, the official cross-platform Yahoo hashtag. Flickr members can upload the photos and use the hashtag in the title of the photo or add a traditional Flickr tag with the same name. By using this tag, your photos will automatically be added to the 49ers Faithful group and may be featured in the stadium or on various Yahoo and 49ers websites.
Look out for the Flickr photographers all year at Levi’s Stadium and be sure to upload your best 49ers Faithful fan photos to Flickr. If you can’t make it to a game in person, share your best fan photos using the #NinersYodel hashtag and participate no matter where you are.
