The San Francisco 49ers are located in the San Francisco Bay Area. They are part of the NFL and a member of the league’s National Football Conference (NFC) West division. Founded in 1946 as a charter member of the All-America Football Conference, the 49ers first joined the NFL in 1949 when the leagues came together.
The 49ers were the first major league professional sports franchise based in the city of San Francisco. They have five Super Bowl championships, won between 1981 and 1995. As of 2017, the team has won six conference championships, have been division champions 19 times and attended the league playoffs 25 times.
Part of the team’s history includes the most consecutive road games won (18), most consecutive seasons leading in scoring(1992-1995), most consecutive games scored (1979-2004), and most field goals in a season (44). This makes the 49ers one of the most successful teams in the history.
