The 49ers will wear their traditional road uniform of a white jersey and gold pants, the team confirmed to NFL.com’s Kevin Patra on Monday. The Chiefs, the designated home team, will wear red jerseys.
The 49ers were expected to lobby to wear their all-white 1994 throwbacks, even though that’s currently not allowed, according to The Athletic’s David Lombardi. San Francisco successfully applied for an exception to wear them in Week 17.
The home team designation rotates between conferences. Last year, the NFC’s Los Angeles Rams elected to wear their blue-and-yellow gear, so the New England Patriots played in white.
