In the time, Oakland seemed a place of improbable action for a team of professional soccer. The city had not asked a team, there was not the group of the property and there was not stadium in Oakland convenient for professional soccer (the most nearby stadiums were in Berkeley and San Francisco ) and there was already a right of successful vote of NFL in the Area of the Bay in the San Francisco 49ers. Nevertheless, the owners of AFL chose Oakland after owner of Steeds of Los Angeles Barron Hilton threatened to lose its right of vote unless a second team to be placed in the Coast of the West. Consequently, the city of Oakland was granted the eighth right Oakland Raiders schedule of vote of AFL in January 30, 1960. The team inherited the club turn choices of Minneapolis . When no team of AFL played never in the Cities Twins, that area is not respected the first home of the Invaders.

The original colors of the team were black, of gold and white. The symbol now-relative of the team of a pirate (or the “invading”) carrying a helmet of the soccer was created, supposedly an interpretation of actor Randolph Scott.

McGah signed the agreement. Under the law of the association, by a 2-1 vote of the general associates, the new agreement thus was ratified.

As a consequence, the Valley sold its interest in the team, and in Davis — although possessing but a small portion of the team — was firmly in load.


In the country, the team Davis had met and had coached improved constantly. With John Rauch as the new first coach, the Invaders gained the 1967 Championship of AFL, defeating the Tankers of Houston 40-7. The victory gained the team a trip to Super Bowl II, where they were struck 33-14 by Lombardi of Vince Green Packers of Bay.

In 1969, John Maddens came be the team sixth first coach, and during the seventies that their Invaders came they be one of the most successful rights of vote in the NFL, although the team was slow to gain the recognition as an energetic person of soccer due to a heartwrenching loss after another in play of Championship of AFC, above all in the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Then, after finishing 13-1 in 1976, the Invaders defeated the Steelers 24-7 in the play of the Championship of AFC, and they passed to gain their first championship of NFL in Super Bowl XI Oakland Raiders schedule on the Minnesota Viking 32-14 in Pasadena , California .
