While the San Francisco 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams fought to a pretty amazing 41-39 game on Thursday night, not everyone was impressed. 

That's because it appeared that Levi's Stadium wasn't even close to being filled up.

Per Business Insider, "shots of the stadium, like the one above, made clear that attendance was dismal for the primetime game. Despite claims that attendance was over 70,000, anyone with eyes could see that the stadium was largely empty, with even some of the best seats in the lower bowl left untaken."

As SFGate noted, tickets were available on secondary markets for just $14 — about the price of a beer and hot dog inside the stadium. And still, few people found the time to support the Niners in person.

Twitter was quick point out the empty seats, sharing images far and wide of the empty stadium:

The Niners aren't the only team struggling to get fans into their stadium on game day. Their opponents on Thursday have also started the season in an empty home.

Playing at the storied Los Angeles Coliseum, the Rams opened their season in front of roughly 25,000 people in a stadium that can hold almost four times that.

Los Angeles' newest team in town, the Chargers, have seen visibly poor attendance despite playing their season in a converted soccer stadium that can hold only 27,000 people.
