The Long Beach Admirals were a professional American football team based in Long Beach, California. They were a member of the Continental Football League to begin the 1967 season and were part of the league's expansion to the west coast. Notably, the Admirals played just one regular season game, a 37–13 loss to the Seattle Rangers before 950 fans, before applying for an immediate transfer to Portland, Oregon. The league denied the request and revoked the Admirals franchise, opting instead to field six teams in the Pacific Division.
