A long-standing team with a rich history, the San Francisco 49ers were founded in 1946 and became part of the NFL back in 1950. They were called the San Francisco 49ers after the gold prospectors who came to the state in 1849. The San Francisco 49ers enjoyed early successes in the 1970s, but they really hit their stride in the 1980s and 90s. The San Francisco 49ers rose to the very top of the NFL by netting themselves 5 world championships in Super Bowls XVI, XIX, XXIII, XXIV and XXIX, sealing their status as one of the most success football teams of all time.
