The 49ers are the designated home team.
The only team that could be the home team is the Saints, because New Orleans is hosting the Super Bowl this upcoming season.
The home team status alternates between American Football Conference and National Football Conference teams each year. For Super Bowl XLVI, the New England Patriots of the AFC are considered to be the home team. The NFC team will be the home team for the 2013 Super Bowl.
The Atlanta Falcons were the home team for Super Bowl XLI.
No team has ever played a home field super bowl.
The home team is the team that has a better overall record.However, there has yet to be a home field advantage because of the Super Bowl location being predetermined and no team yet making it to their own home turf for the Super Bowl.
No, there has not been. Although in the Super Bowl there is always a designated home team, there has yet to actually be a team that's hosted the Super Bowl on their own home field.
So far, no team has played on its home field in a Super Bowl.
Home team is determined by the number of the Super Bowl and whether it is an odd number or an even number. If it is odd, the NFC team is the home team and, if it is even, the AFC team is the home team. Since the upcoming Super Bowl number (XLV/45) is odd, the NFC team will be the home team.
The Indianapolis Colts are considered the "Home Team" for Super Bowl XLIV.
