Everyone loves a good throwback, and fans have long clamored for the 49ers to bring back their 1994 throwback jerseys, which were actually throwbacks to 1955. At the team’s State of the Franchise on Wednesday night, it was announced those throwbacks are making a return for the upcoming season.
The 1994 red throwbacks will be worn in the Sunday Night Football home opener against the Green Bay Packers and five other times throughout the year. Those other games will be again on Sunday Night Football in Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts, on Monday Night Football against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 10 and in Week 15 against the Atlanta Falcons.
They’ll also don the 1994 white throwback jerseys in Weeks 13 and 16 against the Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans, respectively, both of which are currently schedule for Sunday Night Football.
This year’s version of the jersey will have a 49ers diamond-shaped 75th anniversary patch, which the NFL donned on jerseys in that 1994 season.
