The San Francisco 49ers are a professional American football team. The team plays its home games in San Francisco, California, while the club's headquarters and practice facility are located in Santa Clara. The 49ers are currently a member of the Western Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The name "49ers" comes from the name given to the gold prospectors who arrived in Northern California around 1849 during the California Gold Rush.

The 49ers began play in 1946 as a charter member of the All-America Football Conference (AAFC) and joined the NFL in 1950 after the AAFC merged into the older league. The team is also the first NFL franchise to win 5 super bowls and the only team to win 5 in the span of 13 years, The team is currently second only to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl wins (tied with the Dallas Cowboys for five each).
