Track your team’s progress and keep informed with San Francisco 49ers apps for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The 49ers were established in 1946 as a charter member of the All-America Football Conference (AAFC) and joined the NFL in 1950 after the two leagues merged. The team was the first NFL franchise to win five Super Bowls, and is second only to the Pittsburgh Steelers in total Super Bowl wins (6), tied with the Dallas Cowboys at 5. The team’s five league (or currently, Conference) titles (which include the pre-NFL and pre-Super Bowl periods) place them in a four-way tie for fifth all-time, behind the Green Bay Packers (13), the Chicago Bears (9), the New York Giants (7), and the Steelers (6). The 49ers remain the only team in NFL history, of those who have won more than one, to have an undefeated record in the Super Bowl.
The name “49ers” comes from the name given to the gold prospectors who arrived in Northern California around 1849 during the California Gold Rush. The name was suggested to reflect the voyagers who had rushed the West for gold. It is the only name the team has ever been affiliated with and San Francisco is the only city in which it has resided. The team is the oldest major professional sports team in California. Major League Baseball would not come for a few more years when the New York Giants and Brooklyn Dodgers would move to San Francisco and Los Angeles, respectively. The Philadelphia Warriors and Minneapolis Lakers would move to California in the sixties, and the Oakland Seals and Los Angeles Kings would become the first NHL teams in the state in 1967.
