On this date: Sale of team to Paul Allen completed

Posted Jun 30, 2014

A look at a memorable moment in Seahawks history that occurred on June 30

1997: Bob Whitsitt, president of Football Northwest, signs the paperwork to complete Paul Allen’s purchase of the Seahawks. Under Allen's ownership, the Seahawks have had the most successful run in club history – winning the franchise’s only Super Bowl and two conference championships, capturing seven division titles and advancing to the playoffs nine times. As King County Executive Ron Sims said at the time, “It’s a good, good day. It’s a birthday. And this is going to be a great celebration.”
