The pandemic caused NFL clubs to play in front of largely empty stadiums last season, which resulted in significant financial losses for each team. However, based on Forbes’ most recent ranking of the NFL’s most valuable franchises, you would never know this.
The average worth of each NFL franchise, according to the financial publication, has actually climbed by 14% over the previous year, in large part because of the $112.6 billion contract that the league just agreed to pay its media partners.
Who’s the most expensive NFL team?
The value of each franchise has increased dramatically as a result of that deal, with the Dallas Cowboys leading the charge. The Cowboys are at the top of Forbes’ ranking of the NFL’s most valuable clubs for the fifteenth straight year.
According to estimates, the Cowboys are worth $6.5 billion, $1.5 billion more than the next team on the list (New England).
The Cowboys haven’t played in a Super Bowl in more than 25 years, but that doesn’t seem to be detracting from their value as a team that Jerry Jones has essentially been printing money with since he acquired them in 1989 for $140 million.
The Cowboys produce the most money in the NFL, $800 million annually, according to Forbes.
