The 49ers plan to build a new stadium next to Great America amusement park in Santa Clara received a boost today.

Real estate investment firm, JMA Ventures, announced it has reached an agreement to buy Great America, and work with the 49ers to integrate the park with the team's stadium plan.

The two sides have already been working together on the project. JMA will take over park operations this year and plans to retain all of its employees.
