UPDATED FOR THE 2021 NFL SEASON!
San Francisco 49ers Team History
Established in 1946, the San Francisco 49ers are one of the National Football League’s greatest dynasties. In fact, the football team won five Super Bowls between 1981 and 1994.
The San Francisco 49ers are tied with the Dallas Cowboys for second place. Both teams have won five Super Bowls each.
Only the Pittsburgh Steelers have won more Super Bowls. In fact, the Pittsburgh Steelers have won an amazing six Super Bowls!
But the San Francisco 49ers have another stunning record. In fact, they are the ONLY football team in the National Football League to have gone to multiple Super Bowls without ever losing a game.
Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Ronnie Lott, and Bill Walsh are some of the American football greats that have worn the Red and Gold.
World’s Best Party Town?
San Francisco is one of the world’s best party towns. Not only that, watching football games at a sports bar is one of The City’s favourite pastimes.
However, many people from other cities have relocated to San Francisco,. Therefore, many of them remain loyal to their home town teams.
For this reason, it can be difficult to find sports bars that are exclusively San Francisco 49er fan hangouts. Maybe bar owners don’t want to make them feel unwelcome by positioning themselves as 49er bars.
Also, there used to be another NFL team playing just across San Francisco Bay. In fact, the Oakland Raiders also have a large following in Northern California. Will that continue now that the Raiders have moved to Las Vegas?
Where to Watch the San Francisco 49ers
Sports bars sometimes close, and sports fans sometimes migrate to other sports bars. In addition, sports bars sometimes decided to show other events. And they sometimes close for catered parties.
Moreover, many bars have temporarily or permanently closed because of COVID-19. Therefore, you should always call ahead to make sure they are open and will show the game you want to watch.

If You’re Going to San Francisco
Levi’s Stadium is roughly 40 miles south of San Francisco. And the drive usually takes 45 minutes. But itcould take much longer on game day. And on public transport, it can take 2 hours or longer.
In fact, Levi’s Stadium is much closer to San Jose and Silicon Valley than San Francisco.
Therefore, if you plan on staying at a hotel, you should consider whether you want to be closer to the stadium or closer to the City by the Bay.
