The 49ers will enter the 2020 season as the reigning NFC champions, and will look to improve on their 13–3 season from the previous year.
They will also attempt to become the first team since the 2014 Seattle Seahawks to win consecutive NFC championships, as well as to become the fourth team in league history to win the Super Bowl the year after losing it [after the 1971 Dallas Cowboys, 1972 Miami Dolphins, and the 2018 New England Patriots].
The 49ers won five Super Bowl championships between 1981 and 1994.
Four of those came in the 1980s and were led by Hall of Famers Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Ronnie Lott, Steve Young, Charles Haley, Fred Dean and coaches Bill Walsh and George Seifert.
They’ve played in 7 Super Bowls total which is ranked 3rd all time in the NFL. They have been division champions 20 times between 1970 and 2019, making them one of the most successful teams in NFL history. The 49ers rank 4th all time in playoff wins (32) and have been in the league playoffs 27 times: 26 times in the NFL and one time in the AAFC. They’ve also played in the most NFC Championship games (16) hosting 10 of them, also an NFC record.
