Franchise history

As the Frankford Yellow Jackets, the team often played a grueling schedule of 15 to 20 games a season. Frequently, they would schedule an away game on Saturday and a home game on Sunday of the same weekend.

As pro football became a serious business, teams began to move to larger cities and away from the industrial and mining towns in Ohio and Pennsylvania which produced them in the first place. Frankford was no exception, moving to Philadelphia in the early 1930s.
