High Flying Football With Philadelphia Eagles Tickets

The football action will be soaring once you get your hands on a set of Philadelphia Eagles tickets. The Eagles have established themselves as a noteworthy team both on and off the field. Not only do they play some seriously great football, they do a lot of charity work as well.

The Philadelphia Eagles are affiliated with the National Football Conference and the NFC East, apart from playing in the National Football League. They play their home games at Lincoln Financial Field and have three NFL championships, three Conference wins and eleven Divisional titles to their name.

Learning To Fly

The Philadelphia Eagles joined the NFL as an expansion team in 1933. Their first decade on the field was not a good one and it was also reflected in meager sales of Philadelphia Eagles tickets. The Eagles piled up losing season after losing season and in 1943, a shortage of manpower hit them even worse and they were forced to combine with the Pittsburgh Steelers for a while.

Things began to pick up for the Eagles in 1960 and fans showed their appreciation by coming out in crowds to buy their Philadelphia Eagles tickets. They were able to pick up an NFL championship win and play consistently till about the 1980s. At this time, there was a marked reduction in fan participation and it only resurged in 1986. By 1988, the team had a stellar offensive line-up popularly referred to as the Gang Green. Despite facing a number of player injuries and controversies in 2005, the Eagles made a remarkable impression the following year, chalking up a run of five consecutive wins.

Not Just Great Football

Perhaps one of the reasons why Philadelphia Eagles tickets are such a popular item is because the Eagles have distinguished themselves as being a winning team off the field as well. Even their training camp sessions are different as the Eagles go all out to make their fans feel special. This includes raffles, food, autograph sessions, merchandise and special activities for children.

The Eagles have done some truly remarkable charity work as well. In 1971, the daughter of one of the Eagles' players Fred Hill was diagnosed with leukemia. The team rallied around with individual contributions and fundraisers. Hill's daughter was treated successfully and Hill himself was overwhelmed with the support of his team. It was decided that Hill and the Eagles would organize the Eagles Fly for Leukemia in 1972 to help those afflicted with childhood cancer. Thirty years later, the project has raised over $10 million for cancer research. The Eagles are also involved in community charity works to promote literacy via the Eagles Book Mobile. The Eagles Eye Mobile also gives free eye examinations. A number of special events are also organized for children in low-income neighborhoods.

The Philadelphia Eagles have also found their way into popular culture. The famous novel 'The World According to Garp' had a character that was previously part of the Eagles team. The Disney movie, 'The Garbage Picking Field Goal Kicking Philadelphia Phenomenon' featured Tony Danza as a garbage man who plays for the Eagles. You can watch the Eagles soar by getting your Philadelphia Eagles tickets through an authorized ticket vendor online.
