The Value of the Top 50 US Sports Franchises, Ranked (1)

Move over, baseball. When it comes to money, football is undoubtedly America’s national pastime. Six of the top 10 most valuable sports franchises in the country are National Football League teams. In fact, all 32 NFL teams found their way into the top 50 in terms of worth, joined by 11 National Basketball Association franchises and seven from Major League Baseball.

Using data from Forbes, GOBankingRates ranked the top 50 sports teams from the four major pro leagues from most valuable to least. No National Hockey League cracked the franchise list, which is a fun look at a team’s financial worth as well as its success in its sport. The number of championships listed include those won by the franchise in its history, even if the team has changed names and cities, such as the Houston Oilers’ rebirth as the Tennessee Titans.

Whether you’re thinking of buying a sports team or just wondering what your favorite franchise is worth, learn about America’s top teams — all of which are 10-figure entities — by monetary value.

1. Dallas Cowboys

Franchise value: $6.50 billion
Total championships: 5

The Cowboys’ status as the nation’s most valuable NFL — and pro sports — franchise for 15 straight years largely can be traced to its owner, the business-savvy Jerry Jones. Jones reinvented the modern sponsorship model after buying the team for a mere $150 million in 1989. He quickly secured lucrative deals with Pepsi, Nike and other major corporations — a formula that was parroted by the rest of the league’s owners. Even in a year that included a global pandemic, the Cowboys’ value increased by 14%.

2. New York Yankees

Franchise value: $5.25 billion
Total championships: 27

Babe Ruth. Joe DiMaggio. Lou Gehrig. Derek Jeter. Arguably the most iconic team in all of sports, the New York Yankees boast a retired numbers list that reads like a Hall of Fame all-star roster. Although the vaunted history of the Bronx Bombers — and its unprecedented 27 championships — spans generations, one family name has dominated the pinstripes throughout the entire modern era: Steinbrenner. Patriarch George Steinbrenner bought the team for $10 million in 1973, and the team has remained in the family’s control since his death in 2010.

3. New York Knicks

Franchise value: $5 billion
Total championships: 2

The most valuable team in basketball, the Knicks have grown in value despite not having won a NBA title since 1973.

3. New England Patriots

Franchise value: $5 billion
Total championships:6

The New England Patriots are the most dominant NFL dynasty of this generation — and perhaps ever. The Patriots grew in value by 14% in the past year, despite the departure of legendary quarterback Tom Brady to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brady split with the franchise and coach Bill Belichick after 20 seasons and led his new team to the Super Bowl title in February.

5. New York Giants

Franchise value: $4.85 billion
Total championships: 4

The Giants have gone 10 years since the most recent Super Bowl win, and in that span, they qualified for the postseason just once. This season, second-year coach Joe Judge and young quarterback Daniel Jones undoubtedly have the playoffs on their minds.

6. Los Angeles Rams

Franchise value: $4.80 billion
Total championships: 3

In 2016, the Rams ended a more than two-decade-long football drought in Los Angeles, the second-largest media market in the country. The inaugural season was a flop on the field, but today, the team is among the 10 most valuable franchises across all major sports. This year, fans will be able to watch the team in person in the new $5 billion SoFi Stadium, which was closed to spectators last year because of the pandemic.

7. Golden State Warriors

Franchise value: $4.70 billion
Total championships: 6

While it boasts a strong market and good gate receipts, the secret to the success of pro sports’ No. 7 most valuable team is simple — winning. The Warriors brought a trophy home in 2015, 2017 and 2018. Their ratings skyrocketed, as did the cost they charged for naming rights to their new arena in San Francisco, Chase Center.

8. Los Angeles Lakers

Franchise value: $4.60 billion
Total championships: 17

LeBron James led the Lakers to the NBA title in 2020, their first since 2010. It ended a period of futility for the perennial power, which had six straight losing seasons and boosted a franchise still mourning the death of legend Kobe Bryant.

9. Washington Football Team

Franchise value: $4.20 billion
Total championships: 5

The Washington Football Team shed its longtime, controversial nickname in 2020, and the franchise expects to christen a new name before the 2022 season. Think of all the new merchandise that will be sold.

10. San Francisco 49ers

Franchise value: $4.18 billion
Total championships: 5

The five-time Super Bowl champions selected quarterback Trey Lance with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, with an eye toward him leading the team in the future. In the meantime, the 49ers are paying incumbent starter Jimmy Garoppolo a boatload of money. He signed a five-year, $137.5 million contract extension in February 2018 that will keep him under contract with San Francisco through the 2022 season.

11. Chicago Bears

Franchise value: $4.08 billion
Total championships: 9

The storied history of the Chicago Bears dates back to 1920, when the Staley Starch Company sponsored a pro team based in Illinois. The following year, they gave the team to George Halas along with $5,000, provided he’d call the team the Staleys for another. In 1922, he named the team the Chicago Bears, and he and his heirs have controlled the franchise since.

12. New York Jets

Franchise value: $4.05 billion
Total championships: 1

It’s been a more than 50 years since “Broadway” Joe Namath led the Jets to victory in Super Bowl III in 1968. That remains their only Super Bowl appearance in team history. Jets fans are hoping new coach Robert Saleh and quarterback Zach Wilson, the No. 2 selection in the 2021 NFL Draft, can lead them back to the big game.

13. Philadelphia Eagles

Franchise value: $3.80 billion
Total championships: 4

The Philadelphia Eagles beat Tom Brady and the Patriots in Super Bowl LII in 2018 for their first Super Bowl and fourth NFL championship. Not much is expected of them for the 2021 season, with one bookmaker listing the Eagles with +10000 odds to win the Super Bowl. A real longshot, in other words.

14. Denver Broncos

Franchise value: $3.75 billion
Total championships: 3

The Broncos charge a lot for tickets, but the loyal Denver fan base continues to pay big bucks to see the team play. It is, after all, one of the country’s top football markets. More than 87,000 people are on the season ticket waiting list, and the team has sold out every game for the past 51 years.

15. Houston Texans

Franchise value: $3.70 billion
Total championships: 0

The Texans have yet to win a Super Bowl since they entered the NFL in 2002, and this doesn’t appear to be their lucky year, either. At least one sportsbook has listed the Texans as the team with the longest odds to win this season.

16. Los Angeles Dodgers

Franchise value: $3.57 billion
Total championships: 7

Just one team in baseball is more valuable than the Los Angeles Dodgers — and that, of course, is the Yankees. The Dodgers stay flush, in part, thanks to the team’s enviably giant market. It also helps that they’re good. The Dodgers won the World Series in 2020 in their eighth straight season of winning the National League West title.

17. Seattle Seahawks

Franchise value: $3.50 billion
Total championships: 1

The Pete Carroll era, which began in 2010, has positioned the Seahawks as one of the most consistent teams in football. They’ve made nine playoff appearances during his tenure, which include two Super Bowls. They beat the Denver Broncos 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII.

18. Green Bay Packers

Franchise value: $3.48 billion
Total championships: 13

In the world of corporate sports ownership, the Green Bay Packers — and their beloved Lambeau Field — stand alone. The team has about 361,300 owners: the fans who cheer it on. Publicly owned for nearly a century, the team uses sales of shares to improve the stadium. No dividends are paid.

19. Boston Red Sox

Franchise value: $3.47 billion
Total championships:9

The Boston Red Sox are the third most valuable team in MLB. That’s thanks in part to a loyal fan base that keeps showing up to see the team play at the venerable Fenway Park, even as ticket prices continue to skyrocket.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers

Franchise value: $3.43 billion
Total championships: 6

Since their founding in 1933, the Steelers have been owned by the Rooney family, but that level of continuity and consistency is not limited to the team’s ownership. The Steelers have had just three head coaches — Chuck Noll, Bill Cowher and Mike Tomlin — since 1969.

21. Miami Dolphins

Franchise value: $3.42 billion
Total championships: 2

Despite the pandemic, the Dolphins grew in value by 18% in the past year. Even though their ability to fill the seats was hampered, Miami’s worth grew, in large part, because of the NFL’s lucrative television deal.

22. Las Vegas Raiders

Franchise value: $3.42billion
Total championships: 3

In 1966, Al Davis, father of current owner Mark Davis, shelled out $180,000 to buy the Raiders. Just 55 years later, the team is worth more than $3.4 billion. Although the storied team has made the playoffs just once since losing the Super Bowl in 2002, Raider Nation is optimistic as the franchise begins to play its second season in a state-of-art stadium in Las Vegas. Per Statista, the Raiders’ ticket prices are the most expensive in the NFL, averaging more than $153 each.

23. Baltimore Ravens

Franchise value: $3.40 billion
Total championships: 2

Fans in Baltimore love their Ravens. In 2019, the most recent season in which fans were allowed at maximum capacity, 99.5% of the seats at M&T Bank Stadium were filled on game day.

24. Chicago Cubs

Franchise value: $3.36 billion
Total championships: 3

The Cubs have three championships to their name — but two of them came when Theodore Roosevelt was president. The Cubs’ historic and all-around depressing championship drought, which started after the team won the 1908 World Series, ended 108 years later in 2016. That’s when they beat the Cleveland Indians in a 10-inning Game 7 to win the World Series.

25. Minnesota Vikings

Franchise value: $3.35 billion
Total championships: 0

The Vikings moved into the $1.13 billion U.S. Bank Stadium in August 2016. The 66,200-seat stadium has a translucent plastic roof that lets fans feel as if they are sitting in an outdoor stadium. But, in reality, it’s an indoor venue that keeps fans warm and toasty in frigid Minneapolis.

26. Chicago Bulls

Franchise value: $3.30 billion
Total championships: 6

The Bulls haven’t won an NBA title since Michael Jordan led the team to the last of his six in 1998, but it remains an iconic franchise with a powerful national and global appeal.

27. Indianapolis Colts

Franchise value: $3.25 billion
Total championships: 4

The Indianapolis Colts have been a team driven by star power. Longtime quarterback and marketing powerhouse Peyton Manning helmed the team for a generation. When he left, the team turned the reins over to budding superstar Andrew Luck, who went on to sign a record-breaking contract. Luck retired abruptly before the 2019 season, and the Colts hope they have found a new star in Carson Wentz, who will quarterback the team in 2021.

28. Boston Celtics

Franchise value: $3.20 billion
Total championships: 17

Just four NBA teams are worth more than the Boston Celtics, who have racked up 17 championships over the franchise’s long and storied history. That’s the same number as their historic rival, the Los Angeles Lakers, who are No. 3 in value among NBA teams on the list.

28. Atlanta Falcons

Franchise value: $3.20 billion
Total championships: 0

The Falcons have no championships to their name, but their fans have remained loyal. In 2019, 95.5% of the seats in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta were filled.

Making the Big Money:The Highest-Paid Athlete of Every Year From 1990 to 2020

30. San Francisco Giants

Franchise value: $3.18 billion
Total championships: 8

In 1958, the New York Giants followed their crosstown rivals, the Brooklyn Dodgers, to California as pioneers of West Coast baseball. Nearly 65 years later, just a few teams are more valuable than the San Francisco Giants — one being their rival Dodgers.

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Franchise value: $2.94 billion
Total championships: 2

The Buccaneers, led by ageless quarterback Tom Brady, won their second Super Bowl championship in 2021. The game was played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, and the Bucs became the only team in 55 years of Super Bowl history to win on their home turf.

32. Kansas City Chiefs

Franchise value: $2.93 billion
Total championships: 3

The Kansas City Chiefs won their second Super Bowl title — and third NFL championship overall for the franchise — behind MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes in 2020. The Chiefs are banking on more Mahomes magic in the future. In July 2020, they signed him to a 10-year, $450 million contract extension that included a $10 million signing bonus, nearly $142 million in guaranteed income and an average annual salary of $45 million.

33. Los Angeles Chargers

Franchise value: $2.92 billion
Total championships: 1

The Chargers will have their first real chance to win over fans in the Los Angeles area in 2021 since moving from San Diego before the 2021 season. The Chargers spent three seasons in a temporary home and played in 2020 at SoFi Stadium, which they share with the Rams. Spectators weren’t allowed because of the pandemic.

34. Carolina Panthers

Franchise value: $2.91 billion
Total championships: 0

The Panthers moved into their brand-new stadium in 1996, and even though Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, is just 25 years old, that makes it a senior citizen by today’s NFL standards. Team owner David Tepper is seeking a new retractable-roof stadium paid for through a public-private partnership.

35. New Orleans Saints

Franchise value: $2.83 billion
Total championships: 1

For the first time since 2006, the New Orleans Saints will start the season with someone other than Drew Brees at quarterback. Brees led the Saints to their only championship in 2009 but retired after the 2020 season.

36. Jacksonville Jaguars

Franchise value: $2.80 billion
Total championships: 0

The Jaguars owner is a force of nature. Self-made immigrant Shad Khan has revamped the team’s financial structure and taken the Jags international, welcoming the opportunity to play NFL games in London. He also has visions of major development projects in Jacksonville that stand to pump big bucks into both the city and team.

37. Los Angeles Clippers

Franchise value: $2.75 billion
Total championships: 0

The Clippers are emerging from the Lakers’ shadow in Los Angeles. They have shared home court at Staples Center in downtown L.A. since 1999, but the Clippers are planning to move to their own new arena in nearby Inglewood. Target date for construction to be finished and for the Clippers’ relocation is in time for the 2024-25 season.

38. Brooklyn Nets

Franchise value: $2.65 billion
Total championships: 2

The Nets are going financially all-in as they try to bring a championship to Brooklyn, which would be the first for the franchise since Julius Erving led the then-New York Nets to the second of two American Basketball Association titles in 1976. ESPN reported that the Nets are prepared to spend about $296 million in the 2021-22 season in payroll and luxury taxes, which would be the second most ever in NBA history.

38. Arizona Cardinals

Franchise value: $2.65 billion
Total championships: 2

(Video) Top 50: Most Valuable Sports Teams | See World's Most Valuable Sports Teams

The Cardinals had been sitting pretty with a 20-year naming rights agreement with the University of Phoenix. Unfortunately, the for-profit school pulled out after just 11 years. Eager to keep its place among the most valuable sports franchises, the Cardinals sold State Farm insurance the naming rights to their stadium in 2018.

40. Tennessee Titans

Franchise value: $2.63 billion
Total championships: 2

Bud Adams, a Texas oilman, jumped at the chance to buy a franchise in the fledgling American Football League for $25,000 before the league started in 1960. Today, that team is the Tennessee Titans, and that initial investment has turned into a $2.63 billion treasure. The founder’s daughter, Amy Adams Strunk, now runs the Titans. Adams died in 2013.

41. Cleveland Browns

Franchise value: $2.60 billion
Total championships: 8

Until the 2020 season, the Browns hadn’t won a playoff game since 1994. Still, the team continued to rise in value, climbing 11% over the past year.

42. Houston Rockets

Franchise value: $2.50 billion
Total championships: 2

Early in the 2020-21 season, the Rockets traded superstars James Harden and Russell Westbrook. It was welcome news for both players, who wanted out of Houston, and also for owner Tilman Fertitta, who was determined to shed payroll. Harden was in the third year of a four-year, $171.3 million deal. Westbrook was playing in the third season of a five-year, $206.8 million contract. Without their key cogs, the Rockets finished the season 17-55 and missed the playoffs for the first time in eight years.

43. Dallas Mavericks

Franchise value: $2.45 billion
Total championships:1

Colorful team owner Mark Cuban locked up the services of Luka Doncic with a five-year, $207 million contract extension in August 2021. The charismatic Doncic, poised to be the NBA’s next great star, is from Slovenia and has unlimited global marketing potential to go with his out-of-this-world skills.

43. New York Mets

Franchise value: $2.45 billion
Total championships: 2

Hedge fund manager Steve Cohen bought the Mets for $2.4 billion in November 2020. The purchase price exceeded the then-record $2 billion that Guggenheim Baseball Management paid in 2012 to acquire the Los Angeles Dodgers.

45. Detroit Lions

Franchise value: $2.40 billion
Total championships: 4

The Lions were one of the early NFL franchises and have been in Detroit since 1934. They once were an NFL power, winning their four league championships before the Super Bowl era — the most recent in 1957. They modern-day Lions haven’t advanced past the wild-card round of the playoffs since 1991, however, and are one of just four NFL teams never to have appeared in the Super Bowl.

46. Cincinnati Bengals

Franchise value: $2.28 billion
Total championships: 0

The Bengals’ record in the playoffs is akin to that of the Lions. They haven’t won a playoff game since 1990, but they have appeared in two Super Bowls. The franchise and fans are banking on quarterback Joe Burrow, the No. 1 overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft, to lead a reversal of fortune.

47. Buffalo Bills

Franchise value: $2.27 billion
Total championships: 0

The Bills play in one of the two smallest NFL markets — Green Bay is the other — but enjoy a rabid fan base. The team plays in an outdated stadium built in 1973, and the franchise has proposed to build a $1.4 billion stadium that would have 60,000 seats and 60 suites — much of it paid for with public funds.

Gotta Hurt:Pro Athletes Who Have Lost Millions of Dollars

48. St. Louis Cardinals

Franchise value: $2.25billion
Total championships: 11

The No. 7 most valuable team in baseball, the Cardinals, are worth less than the Bills, the No. 32 and final NFL team on the list.

49. Toronto Raptors

Franchise value: $2.15 billion
Total championships: 1

While the Raptors are based in Canada, they’re included on the list since they are part of the U.S.-based NBA. They spent the 2020-21 season south of the border, playing in Tampa, Florida, because of coronavirus-related travel restrictions between the two countries.

50. Philadelphia 76ers

Franchise value: $2.08 billion
Total championships: 3

The 76ers have put together a consistent playoff team in recent years, but they are trying to get over the hump and into the NBA Finals after losing in the Eastern Conference semifinals in three of the past four seasons. They are seeking their first NBA championship since 1983.
