This season, the New York Giants will be looking to create history by becoming the first American Football team in history to headline the Super Bowl at their home turf. The fact that the MetLife Stadium was picked as the venue for the showpiece event gives the Giants an added incentive to go all the way. After a bit of a poor 2012, this provides the team with an ideal platform to right the wrongs of the previous campaign. It promises to be a fascinating campaign.
The New York Giants will be looking to hit the ground running in the upcoming season. They are among the biggest names in the sport and will once again be looking to cement their place at the top of the mountain when the campaign comes to a close. Everyone associated with the team is looking forward to seeing what the season holds. Expectations are high which has had a direct impact on the demand for New York Giants tickets for what has all the ingredients of being one amazing campaign.
Formation and Success
Tim Mara formed the New York Giants in the year 1925. After overcoming some financial troubles, the team started to make all the right noises. They had an epic season in 1927 when they lift their first ever league title. That was a start of an era of success that was to continue for the next two decades. Between 1926 and 1946, they went on to clinch a total of eight division titles. Not only that, they also made multiple appearances in the championship game as well, winning it thrice.
The Next Few Decades
The New York Giants continued to dominate the sport during 1950's as well. During that decade they won the first three of their conference titles and also went on to lift the NFL crown in the year 1956. 1960's brought their way three more conference titles, all of which came in three successive seasons 1961, 1962 and 1963. Things went downhill fast from this point onwards.
Rise to the Top
Things began to look up for the Giants once again in 1986. That year saw them return to the top with a bang. The Giants clinched the division title, the conference title and the prestigious Super Bowl that year. They got their hands on another division title in 1989 before going to do the division, conference and Super Bowl treble in 1990. Another division crown was on in 1997.
The turn of the millennium put them among the teams to beat once again. The New York Giants started the new century by winning the division and conference in 2000. The next eleven years saw them lift three division championships, two conference titles and two Super Bowls.
The New York Giants are among the best supported teams in the country. The MetLife Stadium can play host to well over eighty two thousand fans at a time. The venue has seen attendance figures go up and it is expected to be more of the same during the latest campaign as well.
The New York Giants rank among the most formidable forces in American Football. Their haul of sixteen division titles, eleven conference and eight league and Super Bowl titles are an indication of how dominant they have been over the years. A lot of teams have crumbled over the years under the weight of expectations but the Giants have avoided that. They have been relentless in their pursuit of titles. Yes, there have been times when their form has suffered but the Giants have come out of those tough times bigger and better than before. The last campaign was a bit of a letdown by their standards so expect them to go all out in their quest to put that record straight this time around.
