Does anyone know which Jersey the Steelers will be wearing during Super Bowl XLIII? Are they considered Home or Visitor during this game?

Just want to know so I can decide what Jersey to wear to the game.

I believe it will be white. AFC is road team

They're the visitor. They should be in white.

Is the AFC always the visitor team then?

No, the Steelers chose White in Super Bowl 40 due to their success on the road that year. They were actually home team. I know they were road in 9 (and hence in white). So, in SB 10 they were home and wore Black. I'm not sure about 13 and 14 or 30 (all black clad). Sometimes the other teams just have white as a home color and it works out that way. For example, the Cowboys are a white hometeam.

No the conferences alternate years. The Steelers were the 'home' team in SB XL but wore white as they had been the road team throughout their improbable road game playoff run and believed the white jerseys were talismanic at least during that postseason.

Thanks for the input, I am sure this will help others that were wondering the same thing.
I appreciate the comments.

GO STEELERS! :tt02:

Other than the white jerseys, you can damn well bet the SB is gonna look like a Pittsburgh home game.

Plus, the contrast of white against the field will allow Sweed to spot himself on the Jumbotron much faster and he'll be able to get his eyes back on the ball sooner. :chuckle:

There are a lot of Steeler Fans in Florida, especially in Tampa. I am a huge fan and will be there with my Terrible Towel to support the Steelers towards winning Super Bowl XLIII.

I just had my White Super Bowl XL Hines Ward Jersey framed, so I will probably be wearing my White Polamalu Jersey to the Super Bowl. I may have to pick up a new one with the SB XLIII patch.

In that case, I hope it's a hot sunny day in Tampa for the Super Bowl. Miami would wear their white jerseys on hot days which are cooler than dark colors.

We could wear pink jerseys and still beat the Cards by 20 points.

Isn't ANY game the Steelers play in a home game?

You know they are well represented in any city we play in!

My good ol' The Bus' jersey. The same one I wore during the 2005. Though I'm getting Harrison's jersey 4 myself right before the SB that's what I will wear.

It will depend on what the Cardinals do. It will not surprise me if the Steelers end up wearing Black.

They were the away team in XIII (Cowboys wore their home whites) and home in XIV (so they wore black in that one too).

Don't think the NFL would let them, esecially since the Crads will definitely wear their Reds...

Knowing Whiz, he won't make the Steelers wear Black.

I have about 11 days to get my LaMarr Woodley-road white jersey cleaned and pressed. Oh believe me, that jersey is going to be pretty and smelling mighty fine for Super Bowl Sunday. :tt02::tt::drink::helmet::hug:

Ordered a Polamalu White SB XLIII jersey this morning, so ill be wearing that. Kind of annoying how they dont make the jerseys in the Premier line with the SB patch or in white in general anymore on nflshop.com just the cheap screen printed ones

http://www.prlog.org/10052765-super-bowl-2009-tampa.jpg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Bowl_XLIII)

The Cardinals are the "Home Team" and wear their Home Red Jerseys, the Steelers wear their white, but they get to call the coin toss.

The NFC team is the designated home team in odd numbered Super Bowls and the AFC team is the designated home team in the even numbered Super Bowls.

The Cardinals will be the "home" team.

But RJS will be a Steelers home game.

Has an official announcement been made?

I mean, Wiz may want his guys in white to get that "underdog road team" feel going for his guys in what is clearly going to be a hostile environment.

Personally, I dont care what Color they wear, just play the damn game.

Weather Will be a factor and if it humid down there, then I dont have single problem with the Steelers wearing their white Jerseys.
