About New York Giants
History of the New York Giants
The New York Giants have proven to be one of the most important franchises in the survival of the National Football League. Each season, NY Giants tickets continually top the NFL's hot sellers list. Having a team in the nation's biggest city would help the NFL develop fan attendance and establish itself as a league. Tim Mara bought the New York Football Giants in 1925 for $500, and before the first season had ended, Mara had already invested more than $25,000 in the team. Now over 80 years later, the team has a rabid fan base that sells out Giants football tickets for every game on the Giants schedule.

The franchise has nearly always been a family owned team, beginning with Tim Mara who passed the team on to his sons Jack and Wellington. Wellington Mara, along with his father, has been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH. In 1930, Tim Mara hired Steve Owen to be the Giants head coach and for 23 seasons he piled up 153 victories, including NFL championships in 1934 and 1938, with New York Giants tickets becoming among the NFL's most popular. Following Owen's tenure as coach, the New York Giants were led by coaches Jim Lee Howell and Allie Sherman; between the two, the teams were led to six NFL Eastern championships and another NFL title in 1956.
Following a 20-year span of being out of championship contention, the Giants hired Bill Parcells to become their new head coach. Parcells served as the defensive coordinator for the team prior to his hire and after a dismal 3-12-1 start to his head coaching tenure, his job was in jeopardy. But team ownership kept him on and in the next few years he began to build the team into a serious contender and sales of NY Giants tickets rose along with the team's winning percentage. Parcells' efforts culminated in 1986, when the franchise put together its best season with a 14-2 record. The Giants went on to win their first Super Bowl that season, defeating the Denver Broncos. Four years later, the New York Giants beat the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXV, giving them their second title. The New York Giants found their way back to the Super Bowl XXXV in 2000, but lost to the Baltimore Ravens. The winning ways of the New York Giants continued, as after a tough start to the 2007 season, the New York Giants began a run of great play that culminated in a trip back to the Super Bowl, this time against the undefeated New England Patriots. In an upset that almost no one saw coming, the Giants walked away with the Lombardi Trophy. Sales of New York Giants tickets continued to rise, culminating in another Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots in 2011.
2017 New York Giants Season
In the 2017 New York Giants season, the Giants finished the regular season 3-13 which was their worst record ever in a 16-game season. They finished the season in last place in the NFC East for the first time since 2003 and placed second to last in the league only in front of the winless Cleveland Browns. Head coach Ben McAdoo was fired Week 13 and was replaced by interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo. Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. missed the first game of the season with an ankle injury but returned for Week 2. During Week 5 game against the Los Angeles Chargers, Beckham left the game early with a leg injury. It was later announced that he experienced a fractured left ankle and would miss the remainder of the season. It is expected that Beckham will return to the Giants for the 2018 season.
