    The final seat at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, the new home of the San Francisco 49ers, was installed on Thursday, May 22, 2014.

    Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara continues to move a step closer to its grand opening.

    Crews on Thursday installed the last seat at the new home for the San Francisco 49ers. The stadium will seat 68,500 fans during home games.

    Fans won't just get cup holders when they arrive at their seats, but also hooks.

    The 49ers have added specially designed hooks to the back of each seat, so fans can hang their stuff off the ground.

    Stadium officials said about two-thirds of the stadium's capacity will be housed in the lower bowl, which features more than 45,000 seats.

    Crews began installing the seats, which were all manufactured in Hayward, last October.

    Levi's Stadium opens in August, when the San Jose Earthquakes soccer team face off against the Seattle Sounders.
