San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York didn't want to get too far ahead of himself but did entertain the idea of visiting the White House if his team wins Super Bowl LIV over the Kansas City Chiefs on Feb. 2
"We have to get to that point," York said to reporters Thursday, including Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle. "For me, personally, I respect the office of the president. I'm not going to get into politics, I hope that we have that decision to make. And I hope that we have that opportunity. And I hope we're fortunate enough to get a call from the president to invite us to the White House."
The 2018 Super Bowl champion New England Patriots did not send a full roster to the White House and President Donald Trump canceled the 2017 champion Philadelphia Eagles' invitation after only a small number of players were going to attend.
If the 49ers win, they may not have a full complement on the trip to Washington, D.C., either.
"I haven't thought about it, we've got a long way between now and then, but I doubt it," Niners corner Richard Sherman said when asked if he would attend the White House.
