When it comes to history, it’s hard to match the San Francisco 49ers. They are tied for second among all teams with 5 Super Bowl Wins. They dominated the league in the 80’s and 90’s, winning 5 Super Bowls in a 13 year span, including back to back wins in ‘88 and ‘89. Led by two of the greatest players of all time, Joe Montana and Jerry Rice, the Niners were an unstoppable force.
Following a playoff drought in the early 2000’s, the team returned to prominence under Jim Harbaugh, a brief but impressive run highlighted by a trip to the Super Bowl in 2012. Though the team has struggled lately, the future is bright in Santa Clara. With young franchise quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and emerging starts like tight end George Kittle, defensive end DeForest Buckner, and linebacker Fred Warner, a return to postseason glory seems imminent for the 49ers.
The 49ers are among the top teams in the league in terms of fan outreach, which may be attributed to their success and the large number of sports fans moving into and out of the Bay Area. They have a strong social media presence, with over 2 million followers on Twitter, 1.5 million on Instagram, and more than 4 million likes on Facebook. Any of these accounts provide an excellent source of Niners-based content for fans across the world.
