For the 49ers, playing for the Lombardi Trophy is familiar territory. San Francisco has seven Super Bowl appearances in the following seasons: 2019, 2012, 1994, 1989, 1988, 1984, 1981. The seven appearances are fifth in the league overall behind the New England Patriots (11), Pittsburgh Steelers (8), Dallas Cowboys (8) and Denver Broncos (8). In their seven appearances, the 49ers have posted a 5-2 record. San Francisco’s five Super Bowl victories came during an unprecedented run in the ’80s when they won four Super Bowl titles in eight years. San Francisco did not record a loss in the big game until falling short to the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII.

With another Super Bowl win, the 49ers would join the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers as the teams with the most Super Bowl championships of all time.

Most recent San Francisco 49ers Super Bowl appearance

  • 2019 season: Lost Super Bowl LIV vs. the Kansas City Chiefs, 31-20

The 49ers most recent Super Bowl appearance came against the Chiefs in the 2019 season. In the game, quarterback Patrick Mahomes led Kansas City to three touchdowns in the final 6:13. The Chiefs scored 21 straight points to overcome a double-digit deficit and defeat the 49ers, 31-20.

For 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, the loss cut deep. When he was the offensive coordinator of the Atlanta Falcons three years earlier, the Patriots came all the way back from down 25 points to defeat the Falcons, 34-28 in overtime.

With QB Jimmy Garoppolo and offensive weapons George Kittle and Deebo Samuel, Shanahan will look to rewrite history and finish out this season strong.
