GLENDALE, AZ — The San Francisco 49ers will finish out the regular season practicing and playing home games in Arizona after a ban on contact sports in their home county was extended into January.

The Niners relocated to Arizona at the beginning of December after Santa Clara County announced a three-week ban on contact sports games and practices to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

That ban was initially supposed to be lifted next Monday but now has been extended until at least Jan. 8.

That means San Francisco’s home game Jan. 3 against Seattle will be played in Arizona.
