FAQ – History & Chapters


Niner Empire has always been around, but in 2005 the concept of having Niner Empire chapter and faithful represented in each city, state, and country was pushed thru social networking and tailgates by Joe Leonor, (Myspace, CPixel). Over the years many people have assisted in this crusade of getting the Niner Empire worldwide. People loved the concept of bringing Niner Fans together under one umbrella and so a recruitment of boosters, clubs, events, and passing out flyers at the home game came abroad. In early 2005 the pledge (I PLEDGE MY FAITHFULNESS TO THE NINERS AND THEIR HALL OF FAMERS FOR WHICH THEY STAND , ONE  NATION UNDER AN EMPIRE INVINCIBLE WITH 5 RINGS AND DOMINATION OVERALL) was introduced to the Niner Empire and people grasped the idea of becoming the greatest 49ers fan base of all time. In 2006, Joe Leonor met with a partner and introduced the concept of wanting a website. At the time www.ninerempire.com was not available so the words

In 2006, Joe Leonor met with a partner and introduced the concept of wanting a website. At the time www.ninerempire.com was not available so the words theninerempire was used for a website. Joe Leonor reached out to a few chapters and requested that they become a Niner Empire chapter to represent niner fans in their area. As the years went by chapters began to grow and so did technology and the popularity of Niner Empire tailgates, events, etc…Niner Empire began to make its moves through blood, sweat, and tears. Due to the amount of popularity and technology,  it was decided to move to a new and improved web designer (Smart Boy Enterprises, Christian Hollingsworth) who is known nationally. Smart Boy Enterprises has made it accessible for the Niner Empire to have an opinion, a voice and opportunity to update current information as soon as its announced. The domain www.NINEREMPIRE.com was purchased and now chapters and niner fans are able to voice and express their opinions about 49er football.  The goal is to represent all Niner fans from all over the globe and let others know that we have fans throughout the world. With that being said the logo of a globe and Niner Empire around it was introduced,

Niner Empire has been showcased on the 2011 49er Schedule magnet, billboard on Freeway 101 in South San Francisco and San Jose area, many TV shows and newscast all over the United States, magazines, etc. Currently, we have chapters stretching across the United States and other countries as well as #9er radio as a staple on the site. This is hosted by THE CHAMP & CLUBBER LANG. THE CHAMP  was a finalist in the 95.7 radio contest in 2012. We are one of the first as well to introduce a voice ticker where instead of reading an article one is able to listen to the audio.


A chapter is for all San Francisco 49er fans to come together. For instance, if I travel to Washington DC I look on website www.ninerempire.com and see your chapter I can contact you so I can watch games with other niner fans. Many chapters have also given back to their communities and charities as well.
