Who Owns The New York Giants?
The Giants are currently owned by John Mara and Steve Tisch, who each own 50% of the team. Mara is the son of Wellington Mara, who was one of the original owners of the Giants when they were founded in 1925. Steve Tisch is the chairman and CEO of Loews Corporation, a diversified holding company.
Mara and Tisch purchased the team in 1991 from Bob Tisch (no relation to Steve) for a then-record $500 million. The team is now worth an estimated $6 billion, making it the fourth-most valuable franchise in the NFL, behind only the Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, and Los Angeles Rams.
About The New York Giants Franchise
The New York Giants are a professional American football team based in the New York metropolitan area. The Giants compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the league’s National Football Conference (NFC) East division. The team plays its home games at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, which it shares with the New York Jets in a unique arrangement. The Giants hold their summer training camp at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center at the Meadowlands Sports Complex.
The Giants were one of five teams that joined the NFL in 1925 and is one of only two franchises to survive all ten decades of the league’s history, along with the Chicago Bears. The team has won four NFL championships (1927, 1934, 1938, and 1956), including four Super Bowl titles (Super Bowls XXI, XXV, XLII, and XLVI). The Giants have 29 former members who have been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Some of them include Bill Parcells, Lawrence Taylor, Frank Gifford, Mel Hein, Pete Henry, John Mara Jr., Wellington Mara, Y.A. Tittle, Steve Owen, and Tuffy Leemans.
The team’s heated rivalry with the Philadelphia Eagles is the oldest of the NFC East rivalries, dating all the way back to 1933. The Giants also maintain a regional rivalry with the New York Jets, as they both share the same stadium.
