Actual photo half-hour before the game....

The San Francisco 49ers Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams kicked off in front of a nearly empty stadium.

Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted a photo at the time of kickoff, which showed thousands of open seats. In fact, most sections in the photo have more empty seats than fans.

Here's some photos. Keep in mind, this is the new $1.3 billion Levi's Stadium completed in August 2014
