1932 Washington Football Founding Year HoodieRegular price $58.00 Save $0.00
Awarded an inactive franchise in Boston in July 1932, owner George Preston Marshall originally named the team the "Braves" because it used Braves Field (home of the National League Boston baseball team). When the team moved to Fenway Park in July 1933, the name was changed to Redskins. A bizarre situation occurred in 1936, when the Redskins won the NFL Eastern division championship but Marshall, unhappy with the fan support in Boston, moved the championship game against Green Bay to the Polo Grounds in New York. Their home field advantage taken away by their owner, the Redskins lost. Not surprisingly, the Redskins moved to Washington, D.C., for the 1937 season. Games were played in Griffith Stadium with the opener on September 16, 1937, being played under flood lights.
