History

The Oakland Raiders play in the NFL’s American Football Conference.  The franchise was founded in 1959 as an original member of the newly formed American Football League and began play in 1960. The team was originally given the name of the Seniors by its ownership group. However, before the team began play, the name was changed as many people thought it was a joke. The name Raiders was chosen when a former marine raider suggested the name in a fan contest.  

The Raiders began the 1960 AFL season, playing at Memorial Stadium in San Fransisco, and would play at Candlestick Park as well during their early years. This was because there was no suitable stadium within the Oakland area at the time.

The Oakland Raiders won the 1967 AFL Championship game before losing to the Green Bay Packers in the Super Bowl. Later that year, former coach Al Davis returned to the Raiders organization, this time as part owner. Davis had become AFL commissioner ,but when plans to merge the AFL and NFL became evident, Davis bought into the Raiders franchise. He would eventually become the team’s majority owner.

During the 1970’s, the Raiders would rise up as one of football’s dominant clubs. They joined the NFL as part of the AFL/NFL merger in 1970 and won the first of their three Super Bowl Championships in 1976. They went on to win a second title in 1980 in a surprise victory over the Eagles. In 1982, Al Davis would move the Raiders from Oakland to Los Angeles in a controversial move. The club went on to win their third Super Bowl title in just their second season playing in LA. After that season, the team became inconsistent and struggled, making the playoffs just once in the next nine seasons. In 1994, Davis decided to move the Raiders back to Oakland to play at Alameda County Coliseum.

The Raiders would win three consecutive division titles between 2000 and 2002 as they returned to being a dominant force in the league. Before the 2002 season, the Raiders released head coach John Gruden and allowed him to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in return for draft picks. Later that season, the Raiders would appear in their fifth Super Bowl against the Gruden-lead Bucs. The Raiders lost the contest and many Tampa players said that coach Gruden had so much information about the Raiders' strategy, that the Oakland club had no chance. After the 2002 season, the Raiders have once again struggled to remain consistent on the field.
