Cowboys dominate list of most valuable NFL franchises

 

by

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 nearly $5 billion. For the 11th consecutive year, the Cowboys are No. 1 on Forbes’ annual list of the NFL‘s most valuable franchises with an estimated value of $4.8 billion. Although the Cowboys haven’t been to a Super Bowl in more than 20 years, that hasn’t stopped Jones from basically printing money in Dallas.

The Cowboys’ total value jumped up from $4.2 billion in 2016 to $4.8 billion this year, which is a nice return on investment for Jones, who bought the team for $140 million in 1989.

The Cowboys’ new valuation means that they are now the world’s most valuable franchise for the third straight year.

According to Forbes, the five most valuable franchises in the world are the Cowboys ($4.8 billion), the Patriots ($3.7 billion), the New York Yankees ($3.7 billion) along with soccer clubs Manchester United ($3.69 billion) and FC Barcelona ($3.64 billion).
