The Dallas Cowboys, the NFL team, is the most equal team in the sports world according to Forbes. The football team is worth $ 5.5 billion – half a billion more than last season. For five years in a row, the Cowboys have been the most equal team in the world of sports. The New York Yankees are second with a value of $ 5 billion (up from $ 4.6 billion the year before).
27 of the 50 most equal teams are in the U.S. Football League. The high interest in the league – 88 of the 100 most watched broadcasts in the U.S. in 2019 were sporting events and 73 NFL games – is largely responsible for the high value being maintained despite the Corona.
The league brings in $ 6.5 billion a year from broadcasting rights; According to estimates by experts and analysts, this amount will be doubled in the next agreement.
The NBA, the North American Basketball League, sends 9 teams to Forbes’ list – the New York Knicks lead the league with a value of $ 4.6 billion. The Los Angeles Lakers (4.4 billion) and the Golden State Warriors (4.3 billion) immediately followed.
European football has put 3 teams in the top 10 this year: Real Madrid ($ 4.2 billion) is leading. In total there are 7 football teams in the list of the 50 most equal teams.
The average value of the NFL team currently stands at $ 2.86 billion, the average value of the NBA team – at $ 2.12 billion and the average value of the MLB (baseball) team – at $ 1.85 billion. However, this is probably a record that will not be broken any time soon. It is estimated that the league’s negligence in preparing for the start of the baseball season in the Corona era – will lead to its early closure and unprecedented economic damage.
The average NHL (ice hockey) team is worth $ 667 million.
