Bills related to the San Francisco 49ers stadium construction in Santa Clara have topped $368.6 million so far.
Thousands of items have been purchased, and that number means the team is spending about $1 million a day, according to the San Jose Mercury News, which reviewed the team’s monthly expense reports from the last year.
A third of the spending has gone toward things like developer fees, overhead costs and “customer incentives” for those buying suites and expensive seats, according to the report, and the team says the stadium is on budget.
The other two-thirds of the money spent has gone toward construction costs like concrete ($30.5 million), steel ($70 million), electrical work ($35.7 million) and plumbing ($20.9 million), according to the report.
