Having captured five Super Bowl titles since the franchises’ founding in 1946, the San Francisco 49ers stand as one of the most storied organizations in the National Football League. Recently, 49ers quarterbacks have taken to wearing black jerseys with red numbers during practice, a development that presaged the introduction of the new black alternate uniform, featuring monochromatic a black jersey and pants to convey the team’s discipline and strong will. The distinctive arm stripes and established number fonts remain in contrast red, and the new black look will be integrated into the team’s existing gold helmet and traditional white and red socks. Nike San Francisco 49ers fan jerseys will go on sale in limited quantities through select Nike retailers and online starting April 28, with broad distribution to follow in May.
