History

The Arizona Cardinals play in the NFL’s National Football Conference and have the distinction of being the oldest football club in continuous operation in the United States.  The club was originally formed in 1898 as a neighborhood team in a predominantly Irish part of Chicago’s south side.  The team initially played under the name Morgan Athletic Club.  The club soon became known as the Racine Normals after the area they played in and the name of the field they played at: Normal Field.  In 1901, the team was purchased by Chris O’Brien who then bought new uniforms for the football club from the University of Chicago.  The shirts were a maroon color, but when O’Brien proclaimed the color to be "cardinal red," the nickname "cardinals" stuck from then on.

After the club disbanded in 1906 due to lack of competition, they were reorganized in 1913 only to be disbanded once again in 1917 due to World War I.  However, following the war’s end in 1919, the club was reunited and became one of eleven original franchises in the American Pro Football League, which was the predecessor to the NFL.  In 1922, the team began to play at Chicago’s Comiskey Park and also adopted the name Chicago Cardinals when a team from Racine, Wisconsin joined the league.  

During the 1930’s and early ‘40s, the Cardinals struggled to find success on the field.  However, in 1947, the club won the NFL championship in an upset victory over a strong Philadelphia club.  The franchise relocated to St. Louis at the end of the 1959 season and began playing as the St. Louis Cardinals the following year. After failing to win a post-season game during their stint in St. Louis, the Cardinals moved to Phoenix in 1988. The club played at Sun Devil Stadium under the name Phoenix Cardinals until 1994 when they became the Arizona Cardinals.  Today, the Arizona Cardinals play at the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona, where they began playing in 2006.

The Arizona Cardinals made an appearance in Super Bowl XLIII, which is considered one of the most exciting Super Bowls ever. Unfortunately, the Cardinals fell short, losing to the Steelers 27 to 23.  Quarterback Kurt Warner played a major role in leading the Cardinals to Super Bowl XLIII and is one of the more notable players in club history.  The franchise has fourteen former players who have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, including Jim Thorpe and Dan Dierdorf who may be the team’s best known players to date.
