  • Chiefs among 50 most valuable sports franchises in the world

"Relocations and new stadiums are fuelling big increases in the value of National Football League teams, with the Cowboys the economic model every franchise hopes to match", said Kurt Badenhausen, senior editor, Forbes Media. This is $77 million more than Barcelona and Real Madrid.

And in the latest Forbes list of Most Valuable Sports Teams, Baltimore's team, the Ravens are in the top 30. Ahead of the 2015-16 season, Adidas became United's new kit sponsor worth almost $1 billion over the next 10 years.

The average current value of the top most valuable teams is $2.5 billion, the highest to date, the Associated Press reports, and an increase over previous year, when the average value was $2.2 billion.


National Football League teams are growing at a rapid rate in value in recent years, despite the drama around concussions over the last few seasons. United have moved up two places on the list after being named the fifth most valuable team a year ago.

Behind them are Manchester City, named as the 35th richest team in the world with a $2.1bn valuation, Arsenal at 43rd with a $1.9bn valuation and Chelsea at 48th with a $1.8bn valuation. Rivals Liverpool don't make the list. No Formula 1 teams made the cut, not even Mercedes after winning the F1 title a year ago.

The Los Angeles Rams (formerly of St. Louis) made the list at No. 12 overall, and valued at $2.9 billion.
