Steelers Ranked 28th Most Valuable Franchise In World By Forbes

The Cowboys top the valuation list at $4.2 billion.The 49ers’ value is emblematic of the economic wave all NFL teams are riding: With record-setting television revenue pouring in – and half of the teams playing in stadiums built since 2000 – 29 of the league’s 32 franchises made the list (only the Bengals, Lions and Bills were left off).The New York Yankees were named the world’s most second valuable team.Forbes placed the New York Yankees second – up from fourth a year ago – with a value of $3.7 billion.The New England Patriots ($3.4 billion) are No. 6 on the list. Barcelona ($3.64 billion) and Real Madrid ($3.58 billion).The Los Angeles Rams made the most year-over-year gains thanks to the franchise relocating from St. Louis to Southern California. The team is worth $2.25 billion, according to their estimates and that’s an 18 percent increase over their 2016 value. The well-recognized figure of the Cowboys has most recently had his hand on projects that include AT&T Stadium and the construction of The Star, the new practice facility in Frisco which has already hosted several Texas high school football games since it opened previous year.For basketball, the Boston Celtics, ranked 30th ($2.2 billion), behind only the New York Knicks ($3.3 billion), Los Angeles Lakers ($3 billion), Golden State Warriors ($2.6 billion), and Chicago Bulls ($2.5 billion). Sorry A’s fans, Oakland didn’t make the cut, nor did any NHL, Formula-1 or NASCAR teams.The Cowboys, who opened a revenue-driving $1.5 billion team headquarters and practice facility in Frisco, Texas, last year, raked in $300 million in operating profit on $700 million in revenue during the 2015 season, $177 million more than any other team, according to Forbes.Jerry Jones, loving life right now.
