Finally, Super Bowl LVIII is here, and while fans get ready for the game, the spectacle is about more than scores and halftime acts.
The color of the shirts sported by the competing San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs is one thing that supporters are anticipating. Additionally, they may be fascinated to learn that the jerseys may have a minor influence on the result.
Super Bowl 2024 uniforms: What 49ers and Chiefs will be wearing today
If the Chiefs beat the 49ers, they will become the first team to win two consecutive titles in almost 20 years. Kansas City will wear its customary red home jerseys for the game at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
The Chiefs are the official home team for the game and have chosen to wear their recognizable red home uniform. This indicates that the Niners, wearing white shirts, will be the visiting team.
The home team for the Super Bowl is decided via a system used by the league that rotates between the two NFL conferences annually. The home team selects the jersey it wishes to wear, forcing the other side to pick a different color.
One team has worn white jerseys in the Super Bowl every year since its inception in 1967: the San Francisco 49ers. Another thing worth noticing is that, during these games, teams that wear white jerseys win more often.
Teams wearing white jerseys for the Big Game have a 16-3 record since 2004. To win their sixth Super Bowl, the 49ers will pray that history repeats itself today.
The two teams also faced each other in the 2020 Big Game, when Kansas City beat San Francisco in Super Bowl LIV. As the home team in that game, the Chiefs donned their customary red uniform. They'll want to make history in their recognizable red at Allegiant Stadium.
