The Arizona Cardinals is a football team which was founded in 1898 as the Morgan Athletic Club, a Chicago-based amateur football team. On September 17, 1920, the team became a founding member of the NFL. Since the league’s founding, only the Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals have continued to regularly play football in the nation.
The team relocated to Tempe, Arizona, a college town east of Phoenix, before the 1988 season, where it played its home games at Sun Devil Stadium on the campus of Arizona State University for the following 18 seasons. Thanks to their win in the 1947 NFL Championship Game, two postseason triumphs during the aforementioned 2008-09 NFL playoffs, one during the 2009-10 playoffs, and one during the 2015-16 playoffs, the Cardinals are the only NFL team without a home playoff loss.
Even though the team relocated to a new home stadium in Glendale in 2006, its corporate headquarters and training center remain in Tempe. The annual Cardinals training camp was held at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff from 1988 through 2012. 2013 saw the relocation of the Cardinals’ training camp from State Farm Stadium to University of Phoenix Stadium.
Seven of their eleven postseason appearances resulted in victories, including three between the 2008 and 2009 NFL postseasons. They have only ever won one NFC Championship Game since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger, and that was in 2009 when they made it to the Super Bowl XLIII.
How much are the Cardinals worth?
The Cardinals in the year 2020 was worth $2.325 billion. In 2021, their worth increased and is now worth 2.65 billion.
