Video Shows 49ers Fans Beating Vikings Fan In Parking Lot

A video uploaded by Brandon Cosio after Monday night’s Vikings-49ers game appears to show a group of 49ers fans kicking and punching a Vikings fan in an Antoine Winfield jersey in a parking lot outside of Levi’s Stadium. As a warning, the video’s rough to watch.

The footage starts in the middle of the beating, so it’s unclear what sparked it. A man in a Jerry Rice jersey is clearly shown kicking the Vikings fan in the head near the beginning of the video. One overmatched staff member tries to stop the beating, but isn’t very effective until some other 49ers fans jump in to help settle things down.

Somehow, the Vikings fan gets on his feet at the end of the video. If you know any more about what happened, email us at

Update (12:37 p.m.): Cosio explained what he saw in an update in the video’s caption.

I’m seeing a lot of comments talking bad about the 49er fans without actually knowing what happened, so....

Here’s the full story:

The Viking fan in the video and a 49er fan NOT in the video were talking smack to each other, getting into each others faces. A lot of fans from both sides were telling both people to stop and just walk to their cars. The 49er fan then walked away from the situation and that’s when the Viking fan may have got a little cocky. The Viking fan turned around and addressed everyone behind him (mostly 49er fans). He said “ what’s up, any of you fuckers want some?!” At that point everyone went silent for 2 seconds then as the Viking fan was turning around to walk away, the 49er fan in the black (at the beginning of the video who threw the first punch) tackled him to the ground. That’s where the video starts.
