The NFL’s most devoted mascot is Sourdough Sam. After winning a championship at Candlestick Park in 1994, Sourdough was chosen to be the 49ers’ official mascot.

Every home game, Sourdough Sam, a gold miner who adores fun, energizes the 49ers fans. SDS, who was well known for his love of sourdough bread, would bring the loaf with him after a long day of digging in the gold mines.

Sam leads the San Francisco 49ers onto the field at Levi’s Stadium with his mining pick in the air.

Sam is aware of the value of good health. Sourdough plays and exercises outside for 60 minutes each day, which helps to keep him in such fantastic form.

Sam “Fuels Up” to be the best version of himself with healthy eating and lots of practice. During the off-season, SDS loves to visit the future 49er kids at 49er youth camps, schools, birthday celebrations, and much more!

For the more seasoned devoted fan if you have an event of any kind (business gatherings, festivals, charities, or special deliveries) Sourdough will impress you with his various talents! Sam is everyone’s friend.

He gives everyone a hearty smile and a loud knuckle pound when they arrive! Sourdough Sam embodies everything that is admirable about the 49ers and the Faithful: he is vivacious, funny, and kind
