A new San Francisco 49er stadium planned for Santa Clara could be delayed for a year.

Team president Jed York told the San Jose Mercury News that financing is becoming difficult because of tense labor negotiations between the NFL and the players' union.

The lenders will not sign off on funding until a deal is struck.

That means the stadium is unlikely to meet its 2014 target date.
