Default What Jersey will the Steelers wear during XLIII?

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.

GO STEELERS

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

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.

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.

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.
