49ers arrive in Miami ahead of Super Bowl LIV

Jan 26, 2020 at 4:10 PM--


Super Bowl LIV is a week away, and the San Francisco 49ers have arrived in Miami. The team's charter plane touched down at Miami International Airport shortly before 7:00 p.m. ET.


Shortly after departing San Jose Airport amid much fanfare, the team learned of the passing of beloved sports icon Kobe Bryant, a former Los Angeles Lakers player, and his daughter, Gianna. Several 49ers players shared their shock and grief via social media while on the Miami-bound flight.

The 49ers will play the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV on Sunday, February 2, at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. The Chiefs, who have been designated the home team at the neutral site, enter the game with a 14-4 record, including the playoffs, while the 49ers are 15-3.


San Francisco is playing for its sixth Super Bowl championship and first since the 1994 season. Kansas City's only Super Bowl victory came during the 1969 season but the organization won three AFL Championships before the AFL-NFL merger.

The Chiefs arrived at Miami International Airport shortly before 5:00 p.m. ET. The Hunt family will fly in and host nearly 2,000 Chiefs staffers and family during Super Bowl LIV, with most of those individuals arriving later. Meanwhile, the York family will host around 1,500 staff members and spouses for the big game.

"We're taking a lot of people," 49ers CEO Jed York told Bay Area News Group. "We wanted to make sure that our entire staff had the opportunity to go — everybody from Kyle (Shanahan) and John (Lynch), all the way down to interns. Everyone's been a part of this, and we wanted to make sure they're there to help and also celebrate the moment that hopefully gets us over the hump."

This post will be updated with more photos and video of the team's arrival as they become available.

Many consider San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan to be one of the most innovative young minds in football. After a massive rebuild that started in 2017, his squad reached the Super Bowl last season and was a play or two away from potentially winning a championship. The 49ers could be a formidable obstacle to opposing teams for years to come. Or everything could collapse. You never know in the NFL. But Shanahan is amid a championship window, and fans are waiting to see if he can take advantage of it. Writer Sean Wagner-McGough of CBS Sports recently ranked his top 10 NFL head coaches and listed Shanahan at No. 5 (h/t to Peter Panacy of Niner Noise).

The team came just short of achieving its goal last season and hopes to finish the job during the 2020 season. Players were asked about the goal for the upcoming season. While he understands the journey will be difficult, head coach Kyle Shanahan has already stated that his expectations are to get back to the point where the team stumbled, and right that wrong.

Several San Francisco 49ers players took part in this week's State of the Franchise event. One of the topics of conversation surrounded the possibility of a Super Bowl hangover. As tough as it is for a Super Bowl champion to claw its way back to the mountaintop, it is even tougher for the runner-up. All too often, that second-place team will regress the next season, but 49ers players don't see that happening with this squad. Why is that? What makes this 49ers team so different from past Super Bowl runner-ups? What makes its players think that they can get back and win it all, this time? "I think it's the guys in our building and the leadership that we have," responded offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey during the conversation with Keiana Martin and Greg Papa. "It's
