49ers to Wear Throwback Jersey to Honor Walsh


Joe Montana to Dwight Clark. “The Catch.” Our first Super Bowl victory weeks later. The huge celebration closed down Market Street as it united the San Francisco Bay Area. Those moments 25 years ago marked the beginning of an unprecedented legacy for our 49ers: Five Super Bowl championships that continue to instill pride and loyalty throughout the Bay Area. And they all began under the leadership genius of Coach Bill Walsh. We have heard from so many of you how the vivid memories of Coach Walsh and that storybook season remain with you even today, like this posting in our Bill Walsh Memory Book: “I can remember the 1981 season like it was yesterday. I can remember watching a team destined to win it all, and the foundation laid for what would become the greatest dynasty in modern football history. Today…beyond my family and friends, the single greatest joy in my life remains the 49ers. I owe that part of my life to one person, Bill Walsh.”

The 49ers will wear the throwback uniforms, worn here at the Super Bowl team photo in 1988. Many of you have written or called asking us to have players wear the “throwback” jerseys for a game to honor Coach Walsh. We’re proud to say that we will do just that. In memory of the start Bill Walsh provided for that incredible journey, the 49ers players will wear jerseys from that era during our season-opening September 10 Monday Night Football game against Arizona. That game has been chosen as the 49ers tribute to Bill Walsh; the jerseys will make the game even more special. This is just one of the many activities we are involved with to honor this great man and 49ers legend, including activities in which our 49ers Faithful can participate: •

Contribute your memories and pictures to the Bill Walsh Memory Book on by emailing us at• Visit the Walsh fan tribute area in front of our headquarters in Santa Clara • Attend the Walsh family public memorial service, August, 10 at 11:00 at Monster Park • Join us for the August 13, pre-season game vs. Denver – with a Moment of Silence in honor of Bill Walsh • Wear your 49ers colors to the September 10 game vs. Arizona – a Bill Walsh tribute • Look for the “BW” decals on the helmet and on the coaches’ shirts that the team will wear throughout the season.

We hope you will join us as we celebrate the life of Coach Bill Walsh.
