The San Francisco 49ers unveiled a new design for the team's alternate uniforms at the State of the Franchise event on Wednesday night.

The new uniforms resemble the throwback versions the team wore for most of the 1994 season, complete with a throwback version of the helmet. San Francisco won the Super Bowl at the end of that season. Those uniforms were part of the league's 75th anniversary and were a throwback themselves to the jerseys worn by the team during the 1955 season.

The uniforms will be worn for one game during the upcoming season.

"We loved the opportunity to marry the history and heritage of the 49ers franchise with the modern innovation of our latest football chassis, the Nike Vapor Untouchable uniform," said Nike Art Director of NFL Uniforms Tom Andrich. "It was a way to honor the past while representing the future."

Fans are able to pre-order the new jerseys from the team's official online store here. Inventory features current players such as Jimmy Garoppolo and Richard Sherman, as well as members of the 1994 Super Bowl team and Hall of Famers Deion Sanders, Jerry Rice, and Steve Young.

Rice was even on hand, in uniform, to show off the team's new duds.





The 49ers used the following video, which featured classic footage from 1994, to introduce the new design to the State of the Franchise event audience.





Players were given an early preview of the new uniforms. The 49ers posted the following video on Wednesday featuring several players' reactions while viewing them for the first time.



"I can tell you we rolled them out to the team the other day," said 49ers president Al Guido on Tuesday during an interview with 95.7 The Game, "and the reactions were tremendous from the players. We're real fired up about it. I think our fans are going to love it."

The new alternate uniforms replace the all-black versions introduced on April 30, 2015. Those uniforms have been worn five times during games since their debut. The all-black design with red player names and numbers was often criticized by the media and fans watching at home because the color scheme made it challenging to identify players quickly.

In recent polls, we asked fans about their preference of alternate uniforms, and only around 10-percent of participants indicated a preference for the all-black design.
