Book a luxury suite for the next New York Giants game at MetLife Stadium
New York Giants luxury suites are a hot commodity in the NFL today. Renting a Giants luxury box is sure to impress your most important clients. Purchased for a cost of $500 back in 1925, the late Tim Mara built a franchise with one of the richest histories in league. A family affair since the beginning, Mara’s sons ran the team for many years. In 1991, Robert Tisch purchased a 50% stake in the team. Today, the Mara and Tisch families run the organization, holding true to the same basic principles the team has always believed – team first.
2007 was a banner year for the New York Giants, as quarterback Eli Manning and defensive end Michael Strahan led the team past the undefeated and heavily favored New England Patriots in one of the most thrilling Super Bowls ever. The Lombardi Trophy was captured again four years later in a rematch with the Patriots. The Mara family is still always in attendance in their Giants suite.
Having won eight NFL championships in their illustrious history, including Super Bowls XXI, XXV, XLII, and XLVI, the nation’s largest city boasts a huge fan base and national market.
Following the departure of Super Bowl winning Head Coach Tom Coughlin at the end of the 2015 season, the Giants tapped former offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo to take over head coaching duties. In his first year, McAdoo and the Giants finished the season with an impressive 11-5 record before bowing out to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Wild Card Game.
Expectations were high at the beginning of last season for the Giants. Manning would have, perhaps, the best receiving corps of his career in Odell Beckham, Jr., Sterling Shepard (coming off a promising rookie season), and Brandon Marshall (who was signed to replace Victor Cruz, following his release). Adding Evan Engram at tight end via the draft only sweetened the deal. However, Giants fans had the rug pulled out from under them as the team started the season by losing five straight games, killing all hopes of making the playoffs. Among the reasons for the season’s derailment were a sub-par offensive line and injuries to key players. Finishing at a miserable 3-13, the season was a complete disaster.
Nearing the end of the season, the organization dealt with a PR nightmare when McAdoo benched Eli Manning in favor of backup quarterback Geno Smith, ending Manning’s 210 consecutive start streak. The blowback from the fan base, coupled with the Giants loss with Smith at QB, spelt the end for McAdoo and General Manager Jerry Reese. They were let go and Eli was named the starter once again. Even the Giants defense, which looked decent early in the year despite their losing, fell victim to the horrible season as their rating dropped near the worst in the league. Stars of this squad include Olivier Vernon, Damon Harrison, and Landon Collins, the third year defensive back.
The Giants faithful don’t have much patience for losing football games. It was evident that big changes would be on the horizon for this team. Among them is an eventual change at quarterback. Rumors abound that the aging veteran Eli Manning’s days in New York were numbered. However, it does appear that he will suit up for the G—men in 2018. Newly hired General Manager Dave Gettleman looks to right this ship. His first move was to bring in the Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur to be the new Head Coach. Shurmur has assured the fan base that Manning will remain the starter. In some early moves, the Giants have addressed their offensive line with the signings of Nate Solder and Patrick Omameh. Kareem Martin and Alec Ogletree will improve the linebacking corps on the defensive side of the ball.
Using the second overall pick in the 2018 draft to select running back Saquon Barkley out of Penn State, the Giants are committed to a balanced offensive attack. Barkley not only presents a threat on the ground but is dangerous in the passing game as well. Fans of big blue cannot wait to see him take the field.
Just prior to the start of the season, New York rewarded the efforts of Odell Beckham, Jr., one of the game’s elite receivers with a new contract that would make him the highest paid wide receiver in the league. The five year deal is worth $95 million with $65 million in guaranteed money. He intends to pay back the front office with outstanding catches and unbelievable statistics.
New York Giants legends include Lawrence Taylor, Michael Strahan, Eli Manning, Frank Gifford, Harry Carson, and Phil Simms. For more information and history about the New York Giants click here.
