Cowboys Are Second Most Valuable Sports Team In The World

According to Forbes Magazine, the Cowboys are worth $1.81 billion, making the second most valuable sports team in the world. The Cowboys narrowly miss out on the top spot, which is held by Manchester United with $1.86 billion, but edge out the Yankees, who come in third with $1.7 billion.

Forbes let's us in on why the Cowboys take the top spot among all NFL teams:

The Cowboys are the sports world’s second most valuable team with a worth of $1.81 billion. Jerry Jones‘ $1.25 billion stadium, which opened in [2009], features more than just a 152-foot-wide HD TV screen. Cowboys Stadium has 320 luxury suites and 15,000 club seats that generate more than $100 million annually in premium seat revenue for Jones. America’s Team has also signed a host of lucrative sponsorship deals with the likes of AT&T, Bank of America, Ford Motor and PepsiCo.

The other top NFL franchises in order: #4 Washington Redskins, #6 New England Patriots, #8 New York Giants, #9 Houston Texans, #10 New York Jets, #11 Philadelphia Eagles.

All 32 NFL teams make Forbes' list of the world's 50 most valuable sports teams. Which kind of makes you wonder what this lockout thing is all about. Even the lowest ranked NFL team, the Jacksonville Jaguars at #45 are worth more than FC Chelsea, the Knicks, the Lakers and the Phillies.
