Despite a story after Sunday’s NFC championship that reported the San Francisco 49ers would push to wear their all-white throwback uniforms in Super Bowl LIV, they’ll be wearing their usual road uniform.
Gold pants, white jerseys
According to NBCSports Bay Area, the 49ers will be in their standard white jersey and gold pants for the Feb. 2 game.
The Kansas City Chiefs are the “home” team for the game and will wear their red jerseys. The home team designation flips back and forth between the two conferences.
The last two times the Niners wore the white top/gold pants combination in the Super Bowl, in Super Bowl XVI against Cincinnati and Super Bowl XXIV against Denver, they won the championship.
Unclear if San Francisco petitioned
It is unclear if San Francisco petitioned the NFL to wear its all-white throwback uniforms.
The Athletic reported on Sunday night that the team would make a push to wear those uniforms (which they wore in Week 17 this season) in the Super Bowl.
The all-white uniforms are the kits San Francisco wore in the 1994 season, the NFL’s 75th anniversary season, when teams wore throwbacks in designated weeks. When the Niners went on a winning streak, they continued wearing the throwbacks, including in Super Bowl XXIX when they routed the San Diego Chargers.
