Forbes drops another list, the latest being the “World’s Most Valuable Sports Teams,” in which the magazine ranks the top 50 teams around the world.
Atop the list is European soccer club, Real Madrid, which is valued at $3.3 billion, beating out the second place team by nearly $150 million. It recently inked a new deal with Adidas and Emirates Airlines over the last 12 months that will bring in roughly $80 million combined annually.
In at #2 and #3 other Europe soccer clubs. United ranks second with a value of $3.17 billion, while Barcelona ranks third with $2.6 billion.
At #4 is the first American sports franchise: the New York Yankees. The baseball club is valued at $2.3 billion. Forbes says the team generated $330 million in revenue last season from tickets and premium seating, which is more than the bottom seven MLB teams combined.
And, closing out the top 5 is the Dallas Cowboys, valued at $2.1 billion. The team has been the NFL’s most valuable team since 2007, thanks to the league’s highest sponsorship and premium seating revenues — a combined $200 million.
Other top-ranking teams include the New England Patriots, the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Boston Red Sox, the San Francisco 49ers, Ferrari (Formula 1 Racing), and the New York Knicks, among others.
