SANTA CLARA -- Parking lots will open at 1:30 p.m. and stadium gates at 2 p.m. Monday for the 49ers' final scheduled game at Candlestick Park.
The 49ers (10-4) will be hosting the Atlanta Falcons (4-10) in a rematch of last season's NFC Championship game, which the 49ers won 28-24 in Atlanta. Monday's kickoff is set for 5:40 p.m. (ESPN, Ch. 5).
Here are some other tidbits regarding the festivities: Former 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo will serve as the honorary game captain. "The Catch" will be recognized at halftime as the 49ers' top moment at Candlestick Park, and former wide receiver Dwight Clark will be on hand to commemorate his game-winning catch against the Dallas Cowboys in the 1981 season's NFC Championship game. Fans will receive a pennant commemorating the final regular-season game, as well as a glow stick for a postgame ceremony. A "Farewell Candlestick" card stunt will take place between the first and second quarters. The national anthem will be performed by SFPD Sgt. Jerry D'Arcy.
