Started by the Frankford Athletic Association in 1899, the Frankford Yellowjackets entered the National Football League in 1924, and won the championship two years later. Unable to meet its expenses, the team folded in 1931. In 1933, Bert Bell and a group of partners bought the team's franchise and renamed it the Philadelphia Eagles.
