What San Franciscans Need To Know Before The NFL Season Starts This Year

The NFL off-season is finally upon us – ahead are months of American football-free time to spend anticipating when we finally get football back on our TV screens. The wait can feel unending – but there’s plenty for San Francisco 49ers fans to do to fill the time until the Niners are back and dominating the field once more. There’s a lot of buzz around the 49ers this season, with many pundits and fans wondering: could 2023 be the year we see the 49ers back at the Super Bowl? With seven appearances and five wins, we’re long overdue a triumphant return to those hallowed halls.

Though the wait might feel interminable, there’s still a lot you can do to pass the time and enter the season ready for what the NFL will look like. There are transfers and trades to be made, training programs to watch, the Hall of Fame inductions to enjoy and, of course, all of the games to get ready for. Keeping an eagle eye out for ticket releases is a must if you want to see the Niners play in 2023.

Look For A New 49ers Quarterback 

The 49ers have had some bad luck with quarterbacks recently – injuries from Trey Lance and Brock Purdy in the 2022 season and Jimmy Garoppolo in 2021 have left many Niners fans in despair. All eyes will be on what they plan to do with their quarterback position before the new season begins; will a new player enter the roster, or will the two current young quarterbacks be able to make recoveries in time? Only time will tell, but it is a crucial part of the off-season to keep your eyes closely trained on.

Track The Off-Season Training Programs 

You can learn a lot about how a team will perform during the season by how well their training programs go. Training begins in April, with rookie camps getting started in May, providing fans with an excellent opportunity to watch their favorite players and possible rising stars show their prowess in the training fields.

Watch Out For The Trade Deadlines 

Trade deadlines run throughout the off-season and often attract the most attention of any part of the non-playing season. Fans of the 49ers will be waiting to see if they’ll draft any new or established quarterbacks to help break free from the bad luck the Niners have been experiencing in that part of the game. Keep yourself up to date with the latest rumors to see if you can guess who the newest 49ers will be.

Enjoy The 2023 Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony 

The Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony is always a highlight of the football calendar. Slated for the weekend of August 3rd to 6th, this can be an excellent opportunity to enjoy some football pageantry before the season starts the following month. You can watch the ceremony at home and root for your all-time-faves, finally getting the ultimate recognition they deserve. You could even make the event a little more exciting by placing a bet on who will be named in the prestigious ceremony. You can find all kinds of NFL odds to try your hand at from the expert and reputable BetUS.

Buy Your Game Tickets 

Tickets won’t be released for some time yet, but it is a good idea to be ready when they are – 49ers tickets sell like hotcakes, so you don’t want to miss out. Check ticket sites and the 49ers’ official homepage to ensure you get the best tickets available.

Prepare To See The 49ers At The Super Bowl 

Many 49ers fans think 2023 is the year we’ll finally see the Niners back where they belong: at the Super Bowl. Provided the 49ers can overcome the adversity they’ve faced through injury, there’s no reason to think they won’t make it to the famed finals of the NFL – and you’ll want to invest in tickets for the big game if that is the case.

Show Your Support: Grudge Match 49ers Vs Eagles 

One of the matches we know will be happening in the coming season is an away game with the Philadelphia Eagles, who beat out the 49ers on their way to the Super Bowl 2022. This grudge match is likely to be a highlight of the 2023 season for fans of both teams, with Niners fans ardently hoping they’ll be able to beat back against the rivals that dashed their hopes of Super Bowl glory. As an away game, the 49ers will be at a disadvantage, so they’ll need all the support they can get from loyal fans.

Wrapping Up 

San Franciscans might be staring down a lengthy wait before football returns to our lives, but this doesn’t mean we can’t still find ways for it to keep us entertained. After all, the last thing you want is for the season to arrive and you to be completely unprepared! The off-season can give us valuable information about how the 2023 season will go, from new player trades to training programs to buying your tickets for the games you simply cannot miss.
