The San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs will square off in Super Bowl 54, and the Chiefs will serve as the home team. The league rotates which conference serves as the home team, which impacts the coin toss and what uniforms each team will wear.
This game marks the first time two teams have faced off that had red as the primary color in their home jerseys. The Chiefs will wear their red home uniforms for the game, while the 49ers have confirmed they will wear their white road uniforms.
The 49ers have played in seven Super Bowls, and have worn their road whites in two of them. The won their first Super Bowl, XVI against the Cincinnati Bengals, while wearing the whites. They then thumped the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXIV wearing the whites. In their home red jerseys, they are 3-1, with their loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII coming in that choice.
San Francisco had been hoping to wear white throwbacks uniforms the team re-introduced recently. They got an exception to wear them in Week 17, but it would appear they were denied for the Super Bowl.
