San Francisco 49ers’ Are Super Bowl XLVII Champs…. In Sub-Saharan Africa And Mongolia.

Super Bowl loser's Chicago Bears shirts in Zambia

Colts defeat Bears 29-17 in Super Bowl XLI everywhere but Zambia.

Before the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens even hit the field, apparel of all types were being printed that proclaim each team as the Super Bowl XLVII winner. When the game ends, what does the NFL do with the losing team’s gear? They used to have it destroyed but for the last 17 years, the NFL has donated the world’s 2nd best football team’s gear to World Vision. World Vision then sorts through and distributes up to 100,000 articles of clothing to countries around the world – sweatshirts to cold climates and t-shirts to countries with warm climates.

So don’t fret too much 49ers’ fans – you didn’t win Super Bowl XLVII but you did earn some Jubbling points in Mongolia and possibly Malawi where they think you are the champions – it’ll say so right on their shirts! [Bloomberg via Consumerist]
