The San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs face each other in Super Bowl 54, and as with all NFL games, one team will be considered “home” and one will be considered “away.” This is despite the game taking place in Miami, which is decidedly NOT San Francisco or Kansas City, I’m told.
On game day, the 49ers will be considered the away team, and will suit up in the away team’s locker room. That’s because the NFL rotates between the NFC and the AFC each year.
This means the Chiefs will be the home team.
For those who like numbers that almost certainly mean nothing, the designated away teams have won 32 out of 53 Super Bowls to date, or 60.4 percent of the time.
The home team is given a choice as to whether it will wear its home colored jerseys or away jerseys. It almost always dons the home jerseys, but six times in history a team has chosen to wear its away jerseys.
This year, the Chiefs are wearing their home uniforms, which are a red top with white pants. The 49ers are wearing white tops with gold pants.
