About the Arizona Cardinals The Cardinals were founded in 1898 and in 1920 became a charter member of the National Football League. The club holds the distinction of being the oldest continuously-operated franchise in professional football. While it has been in existence for more than a century and enjoys a long, rich history, the team's greatest success has come in the last 15 years. In that span, the Cardinals have won their division three times, advanced to the conference championship game twice and earned the franchise's first-ever Super Bowl appearance. Away from the field, the organization's commitment to the community is a year-round mission, highlighted by the efforts of Cardinals Charities which was founded in 1990 to improve the quality of life and enhance opportunities for children, women and minorities in Arizona.
