History

The New York Giants play in the NFL’s National Football Conference and are one of the oldest teams in the league. The Giants were founded in 1925 by owner Tim Mara. The franchise was legally registered as the New York Football Giants to distinguish the club from the Major League Baseball team of the same name.  

On the field, the Giants found success quickly winning the NFL Championship in just their third season. However, the team was struggling financially and Mara transferred ownership to his sons Wellington and Jack to protect the franchise against creditors. The team recovered financially and continued to see success on the field. Beginning in 1933, the Giants would play in eight NFL Championship games over a 14 year span. They won the Championship in 1934 and 1938.  

The team would continue to be competitive throughout the 1940’s, but would not claim another championship until 1956. The Giants would then go on to play in five NFL Championships from 1958 until 1963, but lost all on five occasions. After this streak, the club fell into a period of futility, making the playoffs just twice from 1964 until 1980.

During this period, in 1972, the Giants decided to construct their own stadium instead of continuing to play at Yankee Stadium. Between 1972 and 1975, the Giants played home games at the Yale Bowl and Shea Stadium. This change in venue was because Yankee Stadium was being renovated and the new Giants Stadium was not completed. This disruption led to the Giants being called the “Orphans” of the NFL.

During the 1980’s, the Giants had a resurgence, making the playoffs seven times between 1980 and 1990. Led by head coach Bill Parcells and star players such as QB Phil Simms and LB Lawrence Taylor, the Giants won the Super Bowl in 1986 and again in 1990. The franchise would struggle to win consistently during the 1990’s and early in the 2000’s. However, in 2007 they won the Super Bowl once again in one of the biggest upsets in NFL history. The Giants defeated the New England Patriots, who were undefeated in the season.

In 2010, the Giants moved from Giants Stadium into Met Life Stadium which is located at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The Giants have played their home games outside of New York since moving into Giants Stadium in 1976. In 2011, the franchise would win its fourth Super Bowl title and eighth overall championship when they once again defeated the Patriots.
