After several years spent rebuilding, the San Francisco 49ers are looking to rebound in 2018 with a new, young squad. In 1990, however, the iconic San Francisco 49ers franchise was squaring off against the Denver Broncos in their second-straight Super Bowl appearance. The road to the 2019 Super Bowl in Atlanta takes us once again through New Orleans, as we reminisce on Super Bowl XXIV.

On January 28, 1990 the San Francisco 49ers and the Denver Broncos gathered to play Super Bowl XXIV. The game was played in New Orleans, Louisiana at the Louisiana Super Dome. The final score of the game was 55-10 with the 49ers taking home the win. There were a total of 72, 919 people in attendance for Super Bowl XXIV.

Super Bowl XXIV was aired on the CBS network this go around and a 30 second commercial could cost a company around $700,000. There were a total of 73.85 million viewers tuning in to watch this game. Aaron Neville sang the National Anthem and Pete Fountain led the halftime show. Pat Summerall and John Madden were once again announcers for the Super Bowl in 1990.
