A Team is Born

In 1972, a group of local business and community leaders, including the Nordstrom family, launched their effort to acquire an NFL franchise for the city of Seattle. Two years later, the dream was realized when the NFL granted the city and expansion franchise. The team took the field for the first time on August 1, 1976 in a pre-season game against the San Francisco 49ers in the then- newly built Kingdome.
