Wear White – Eleven of Last Twelve Super Bowl Winners Did This
The color they chose to wear is white! 11 of the last 12 Super Bowl winners have worn white uniforms. The only team that won in its “home” jersey was the Green Bay Packers in 2010.
Some Denver fans wanted the Broncos to wear orange. They wanted Denver to finally win a Super Bowl in the color that defines this team. Orange is, after all, Denver’s identity. They didn’t care that the Broncos are 0-4 when they wear orange in the Super Bowl. They wanted that streak to end in the Bay Area. The orange jersey curse will have to wait until next time as the Denver Broncos have elected to go with their white road jersey instead.
John Elway explained the decision in simple terms. “We’ve had Super Bowl success in our white uniforms,” Elway said.
Alas, the Broncos will wear white. For what’s it worth, they are 1-1 in white and won their last Lombardi Trophy in this color.
In 11 of the last 12 Super Bowls, the winner wore white uniforms. Another stat to consider: The Carolina Panthers are 0-5 all time in the postseason when they wear their “home uniforms.” It just happened again.
