A man headed to the San Francisco 49ers game was stabbed and wounded seriously near Candlestick Park, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
The victim, whose name has yet to be released, was stabbed in the torso. He was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive, the police said.
The victim was walking with a group of five friends when he was approached by two suspects. The suspects, also 49ers fans, got into a verbal altercation with the group, which led to the stabbing, according to the Silicon Valley Mercury News.
Last Sunday, a Chicago Bears fan was fatally stabbed at a Jacksonville bar before the Bears beat the Jaguars 41-3.
