The Philadelphia Eagles are a professional football team that competes in the National Football League (NFL) in the league's National Football Conference (NFC) East division. The Eagles franchise was established in 1933 when Bart Bell and Lud Wray purchased the former Frankford Yellow Jackets for 2,500 U.S. dollars. The Eagles’ franchise value grew to around 4.9 billion U.S. dollars in 2022.
The team plays its home games at the Lincoln Financial Field in South Philadelphia and the average regular season home attendance for the Eagles in 2021 was 69,796 per game. In 2021, the revenue of the Eagles amounted to approximately 547 million U.S. dollars and its operating income for that same year stood at around 145 million U.S. dollars.
The team has so far appeared in four Super Bowls — losing the first two times the team made it to the championship game. In 2018, the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII to win their first Super Bowl championship. In 2023, the Eagles lost out in the championship game to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Eagles won three NFL championships in 1948, 1949, and 1960 prior to the NFL-AFL merger in 1970. The team is also known for its intense rivalry with the New York Giants, as well as its historically high-profile rivalry with the Washington Commanders.
The team is currently owned by Boston businessman Jeffrey Lurie, together with his former wife Christina Weiss Lurie, who received a sizeable ownership stake as part of the divorce settlement.
