The NFL has reasserted its prowess over global sports by once again dominating the ranks of the world’s most valuable sports teams.

Thirty of the 32 NFL teams secured a place on Forbes’ top 50 list, with six in the top 10. Together, the 50 teams are worth $222.7 billion, representing a 30% year-over-year increase — the biggest in five years.

The Dallas Cowboys top the list with an $8 billion valuation — Jerry Jones purchased the team in 1989 for $150 million. The New England Patriots took the second spot at $6.4 billion, with the Los Angeles Rams following at $6.2 billion.

  • Nos. 4, 5: New York Yankees, New York Giants ($6 billion)
  • Nos. 6, 7: New York Knicks, Chicago Bears ($5.8 billion)
  • Nos. 8, 9: Golden State Warriors, Washington Commanders ($5.6 billion)
  • No. 10: Los Angeles Lakers ($5.5 billion)

The NFL hasn’t had at least 30 teams on the list since 2014.

Lost From The List

Chelsea FC came in at No. 50 with a $3.1 billion valuation, but still beat out every team from several other professional leagues.

The New York Rangers are the most valuable NHL team at $2 billion. The Indian Premier League’s most valuable team, the Mumbai Indians, sits at $1.3 billion, and MLS’ most valuable club, Los Angeles FC, has an $860 million valuation.
