49ers won’t wear throwback uniforms for Super Bowl LIV vs Chiefs
The 49ers reportedly requested the NFL to be able to don their all-white throwback jerseys last worn during the 1994 season. That request was denied and instead San Francisco will wear its normal road jerseys—that is, white jerseys and gold pants in the upcoming AFC-NFC clash with the No. 2 Kansas City Chiefs.
According to the NFL, the league alternates which conference is “home” and “away” at the Super Bowl ever year, and the Chiefs will be home at the big game on Feb. 2. Star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who won the league’s regular-season MVP award last year, will lead Kansas City, wearing their home dark jerseys (red jerseys, white pants).
The 49ers are 2-0 while wearing white in Supes, according to the league, defeating the Cincinnati Bengals in SB XVI and the Denver Broncos in SB XXIV. The 49ers clinched a spot in the big game on Sunday, downing Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers at home. It’s their seventh appearance in the big show following the 2012-13 season and playoffs, which led to the Niners losing to the Baltimore Ravens.
The Chiefs, meanwhile, clinched a spot in Super Bowl LIV by defeating the upstart No. 6 Tennessee Titans in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday. It’s Kansas City’s first appearance in the Super Bowl in fifty years—when they beat the Minnesota Vikings in the pre-AFL-NFL merger’s championship (they’re only title and appearance in what’s now known as the Super Bowl).
