The Dallas Cowboys not only are the NFL's most valuable franchise for the 11th straight year, they are the top-valued team in the world.

The Cowboys are worth $4.8 billion, a 14% percent rise over the previous year and leads the next closest team by more than $1 billion in value.

At $3.7 billion, the Patriots now tie the New York Yankees as the second most valuable team in the world.

It seems that the trick to increasing your team's value is to open a new stadium.


If Jerry Jones ever decides to sell the Dallas Cowboys, someone is going to have to write him a monstrous check because the team is now worth almost $5 billion. The team rose in value by 16 percent thanks to the opening of Mercedes-Benz Stadium and the sponsorship dollars committed.

The 49ers' inability to draw fans to Levi's Stadium has done little to stunt the continued growth in the value of the franchise, which has topped $3 billion. The good first. The team's value actually went up from a year ago, but the bad news because we're the least valuable team in the league.

Forbes has released its annual ranking of National Football League teams. According to Forbes the average baseball team is worth $1.54 billion. Behind these teams we have European soccer giants - Manchester United, $3.69 billion; FC Barcelona, $3.64 billion; Real Madrid, $3.58 billion.
