About Football Northwest LLC

The Northwest is a prime nesting spot for this football team. Football Northwest owns and operates the Seattle Seahawks professional football franchise. The team joined the National Football League during the league expansion of 1976 (the same year as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers) but suffered through mostly disappointing seasons until a resurgence beginning in the late 1990s. However, in 2014 the team won its first ever Super Bowl title. Founded by department store magnate Lloyd Nordstrom, the Seahawks franchise has been owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen since 1997.

Geographic Reach

The team's $425 million stadium (CenturyLink Field) replaced the aging Kingdome that had served as home for the Seahawks and the Seattle SuperSonics since the 1970s. Financed in part with public money, the facility is operated Allen's First & Goal.


In 2013 the Seahawks expanded their partnership with Boeing. As part of the exclusive sponsorship, Boeing will increase its branding footprint in connection with the Seahawks, including during press conferences and other media opportunities related to the team.

Also in 2013 the Seahawks and Sounders FC expanded the teams' pro shop at CenturyLink Field. In addition the team has a partnership with SportStream, a leading social second-screen experience for sports fans, to deliver a customized Seahawks social feed during all games.
