On Thursday, San Francisco 49ers team president Jed York unveiled the $1.2 billion new home of the team.

This upcoming season, the 49ers will play their home games at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara.

Last year, the team reached a 20-year, $220 million naming rights deal with Levi Strauss. 

As a result, Forbes Magazine has ranked the 49ers as the 20th most valuable sports team in the world.

Although San Francisco occupied a higher spot (17th ) in 2013, the team's value did increase this year. The 49ers are currently worth $1.224 billion.
