The Arizona Cardinals play in the NFL as a member of the National Football Conference West Division. The team began life in 1898 as the Morgan Athletic Club and is one of the US’ oldest continuously run professional football teams. They play their home games at State Farm Stadium, which opened its doors in 2006.
The Cardinals joined the NFL in 1920 and together with the Chicago Bears, is one of just two franchises that has been operating since the league’s founding. In 1960, the club moved to St. Louis where it remained until 1987 at which point it moved to Tempe, Arizona. They moved to their current home field in Glendale in 2006, although the club executive offices and training facility remains in Tempe.
The Cardinals have won two NFL championships, both while they were based in Chicago, in 1925 and then again in 1947. Since then, the team has suffered numerous losing seasons and currently holds the longest active championship drought of North American sports, at 72 consecutive seasons. The team has reached the playoffs ten times and won seven playoff games. In the 2008-09 season, the Cardinals won their only NFC Championship game since the AFL and NFL merged in 1970, and they reached the Super Bowl XLIII, which they lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Furthermore, since their 1947-48 NFL championship game appearances, the Cardinals have won five division titles (1974, 1975, 2008, 2009 and 2015). They are also the only NFL team to have never lost a playoff game at home.
The Phoenix Suns play in the NBA as a member of the league’s Western Conference Pacific Division. The team is the only one in the division not based in California and it plays its home games at the Footprint Center. Furthermore, the Suns are the only one of the four major league sports teams in the Phoenix area that claims to represent the city of Phoenix rather than the state of Arizona.
The Suns franchise was established in 1968 as an expansion team and they did not have an auspicious start. However, things changed in the 1970s and they reached the 1976 NBA Finals. Unfortunately, they failed to win the series and spent much of the next decade rebuilding. Things improved when the Suns acquired Kevin Johnson in 1988 and the team reached the playoffs for a franchise-record thirteen consecutive appearances and remained a title contender throughout the 1990s. However, they failed to win a championship and once again fell into mediocrity.
This once again changed in 2004 and the team became famous for its fast, dynamic offence and they tied the franchise record in wins in the 2004-05 season. Unfortunately, it was then a long time until the Suns reached the playoffs. They finally returned to the NBA Finals in 2021.
The Arizona Coyotes play in the NHL as a member of the Central Division in the Western Conference. The Coyotes began life as the Winnipeg Jets in 1971 as a member of the WHA before joining the NHL in 1979. They then moved to Phoenix in 1996 and became the Phoenix Coyotes. Finally, in 2014, the franchise became the Arizona Coyotes. The team first played at the America West Arena in downtown Phoenix before moving in 2003 to Glendale’s Gila River Arena.
The Coyotes had developed a reputation for instability under previous ownership. In 2009, the NHL took over operations of the franchise when the then-owner Jerry Moyes handed it over directly to the league after declaring bankruptcy. The NHL maintained control of the team until 2013, when it was able to find new ownership willing to keep the Coyotes in Arizona. At present, the Coyotes are the oldest team in the NHL to have never played in the Stanley Cup Finals.

The team moved to NCAA Division I and joined the WAC in July 2013. Prior to that, during their time as member of NAIA, they were national champions in 1975, 1978, and 1988.
