Team Owner Michael Bidwill 2020 Staff Headshot

Michael J. Bidwill



Michael Bidwill practiced law for six years as a federal prosecutor but in 1996 returned to the team for which he had once been a ball boy. He represents his family's third generation of franchise leadership, following in the footsteps of grandfather Charles – a Pro Football Hall of Famer who purchased the team in 1933 – and his dad Bill, who handled day-to-day operations for decades.

After initially serving as Vice President/General Counsel, Michael took over as team president in 2007 and his leadership has transformed the franchise. Since '07, the Cardinals have posted four double-digit win seasons (none in previous 20 years), including a franchise-record 13 victories in 2015. Of the Cardinals' seven postseason wins, five have come during Bidwill's tenure leading the franchise.
