Cardinals Make List of 50 Richest Sports Franchises in the World

In those three years, the Cowboys are now worth a reported $4.1 billion, almost double that total, and now stand at No. 1, above Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United. The Red Devils were valued at $3.69 billion by the American business magazine ahead of Barcelona and Real Madrid. "The other 29 teams will each receive more than $50 million in relocation fees, with none of that money shared with the players". Alongside Adidas, the club are sponsored by other big companies such as Chevrolet and 20th Century Fox.

The Ravens were ranked the 27th most valuable sports franchise by Forbes on Wednesday, the same spot they placed in last year's rankings.

Madrid are valued as the world's fourth-richest sports team at $3.64bn, with their arch-rivals Barcelona not far behind on $3.64bn.

After United, Madrid and Barcelona, come German giants Bayern Munich who are ranked as the 15th most valuable sports team in the world at $2.71bn.

The Chiefs enjoyed an overall value increase, per Forbes, of 23 percent over the previous year.

Forbes' annual rankings of the most valuable sports franchises reminded everyone that winning isn't everything, and NY earned three of the top 10 spots.

58% of the list is taken up by National Football League teams. Only the Bengals, Lions and Bills missed the cut. No Formula 1 teams made the cut, not even Mercedes after winning the F1 title a year ago.
