The San Francisco 49ers (sometimes known as the San Francisco Forty-Niners) are an American football team headquartered in San Francisco. The 49ers are a member of the National Football Conference (NFC) West division of the National Football League (NFL) and play their home games at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, which is 38 miles (61 kilometers) southeast of San Francisco.
The prospectors that landed in Northern California during the 1849 Gold Rush inspired the team’s name.
The franchise began as a charter member of the All-America Football Conference (AAFC) in 1946, and when the leagues merged in 1949, they became part of the NFL.
The San Francisco 49ers are the NFL’s 10th oldest franchise and the city’s first major league professional sports franchise. The team began to play in San Francisco at Kezar Stadium before moving to Candlestick Park in 1971 and then to Levi’s Stadium in 2014. The 49ers have been based in Santa Clara since 1988.
