Golden Assets: Cowboys, Yankees Top List Of Most Valuable Sports Franchises

By Barry Janoff

July 12, 2017: Many people may not refer to the Dallas Cowboys as "America’s Team," but even naysayers have to admit that they are the world’s most valuable sports team.

The NFL’s Cowboys top a list of the 50 Most Valuable Sports Teams around the globe, valued at $4.2 billion, with MLB’s New York Yankees second at $3.7 billion, according to a new study from Forbes.

Three soccer teams are also in the Top Five: Manchester United ($3.69 billion), Barcelona ($3.64 billion) and Real Madrid ($3.58 billion).

The New England Patriots were the second most valuable NFL franchise, and No. 6 overall, at $3.4 billion.

Including the Cowboys, there are 29 of 32 NFL teams in the Top 50 (the Cincinnati Bengals, Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills fell below the level), eight from MLB (up from seven in the previous list) and seven each from the NBA and European soccer.

There are no no NHL, MLS, F1 or Nascar teams in the Top 50.

It helped the Cowboys that they had two of the most high-profile players in the league this past season, rookie RB Ezekiel Elliot and rookie QB Dak Prescott. The pair were No. 1 and 2, respectively, in player sales among all licensed NFL merchandise from March 1, 2016 - Feb. 28, 2017, according to the NFL Players Assn.

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant was No. 4 on th list, just behind Patriots QB Tom Brady.

Overall, ten franchises are valued at $3 billion or more, four from the NFL.

The Top 50 actually includes 51 teams (the NFL’s New Orleans Saints and MLB’s Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are tied for 50 at $1.75 billion). Overall, there are 87 sports franchises worldwide now worth at least $1 billion.

Showing that winning isn’t everything, the New York Knicks at $3.3 billion are the NBA’s most valuable franchise, followed by the Los Angeles Lakers ($3 billion).

The Knicks over the past two NBA seasons have compiled a 63-101 record, the Lakers 43-121.

The Top 50 cutoff is up 18% from $1.48 billion last year, according to Forbes.

"Credit the massive profitability across the NFL -- every team turned a profit of at least $26 million for the 2015 season."

The reason for the NFL’s strong showing: "Credit the massive profitability across the league -- every team turned a profit of at least $26 million for the 2015 season."

According to Forbes,“NFL owners are also in line for a windfall from the relocations of the Rams, Chargers and Raiders. The other 29 teams will each receive more than $50 million in relocation fees, with none of that money shared with the players.”

The relocated Los Angeles Rams showed the biggest gain, moving from outside the Top 50 to No. 12. ($2.9 billion).

The value of the franchise should continue to improve in value thanks to a $2.6 billion stadium in Inglewood, Calif., projected to open for the 2020 NFL season, that would also be home to the Chargers, which relocated from San Diego to Los Angeles for the coming NFL campaign.

Two teams — the NBA’s Houston Rockets and Liverpool FC — dropped out of the Top 50.

Arsenal had the biggest decline, falling from No. 23 to No. 43.
