Cowboys' value climbs to $4.8bn atop Forbes' NFL list

The Chiefs are the 24th most valuable team in the NFL, Forbes says.

The Cowboys, for more than a decade the NFL's most valuable team, are now the top franchise on the planet with Forbes placing their worth at $4.8 billion.

Jerry Jones paid $140 million for the Cowboys and Cowboys Stadium in 1989, which means the team is worth roughly 17 times more than what he paid for it, factoring for inflation. Considering that they are ahead of New England Patriots ($3.7 billion) for more than $1 billion we'd say that this comes as a major success of the whole franchise.

The Chiefs are now part of the NFL's $2 billion club. Also boosting National Football League team values: rich stadium deals and relocations, such as the Raiders' move to Las Vegas and the Chargers to Los Angeles. Behind these teams we have European soccer giants - Manchester United, $3.69 billion; FC Barcelona, $3.64 billion; Real Madrid, $3.58 billion. The team rose in value by 16 percent thanks to the opening of Mercedes-Benz Stadium and the sponsorship dollars committed. The league's 32 teams had an estimated average operating profit of $101 million last season, with no team taking in less than $40 million.

At nearly $5bn, Jerry Jones' team is the most valuable franchise in any sport worldwide.
