The 49ers will wear their traditional road uniforms for Super Bowl LIV despite their reported desire to don the team's all-white 1994 throwback jerseys.

San Francisco confirmed their Super Bowl attire with NFL Media, who said the Chiefs will wear their dark jersey for the big game in Miami. 

The Athletic's David Lombardi reported on Sunday that the Niners wanted to wear their throwback uniforms for the Super Bowl, which would would have required them getting permission from the NFL. With the AFC being the designated home conference for the Super Bowl this season, the Chiefs had the first choice for jersey selection. 

San Francisco received permission to wear the '94 throwbacks for its Week 17 game against the Seahawks, and the team's stars reportedly supported the choice to do so for the Super Bowl.

Richard Sherman said the NFL "is thinking about changing (the uniform) policy now," which gave hope that the league would allow the all-white threads for Super Bowl LIV. Last season, the league approved the Rams' throwbacks for the team's Super Bowl appearance.

The 49ers are reportedly making a push to wear their all-white '94 throwback uniforms in the Super Bowl.

The throwbacks were worn by the 49ers at the end of the team's Super Bowl-winning 1994 season. Steve Young threw six touchdowns in a red version of the uniform in San Francisco's last championship victory. The jerseys reflected ones worn by the 49ers in 1955. 

San Francisco advanced to its first Super Bowl since the 2012 season with a 37-20 victory over the Packers in Sunday's NFC Championship game. The Niners will face the Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV after Kansas City earned the Lamar Hunt Trophy for the first time in 50 years by beating the Titans, 35-24.

The Chiefs are an early betting favorite against the 49ers in Super Bowl LIV on Feb. 2.
