Forbes has unveiled their list of the world’s 50 most valuable sports teams. Most of us like some kind of professional sports, but these numbers are proof this is big business, baby. It’s a mutli-billion dollar business that gets bigger ever year. According to the article, “the world’s 50 most valuable sports teams are worth a combined $222.7 billion, 30% more than a year ago, the biggest increase in five years.” Chew on that for a moment.
It’s clear, the NFL is in command of the numbers, with 30 of the total 32 teams making the top 50. That equates to 60% of the list, as Forbes reports. But which Boston teams made the list. If we are talking top ten…only one Boston sports team made the cut. Two others are holding down spots #30 and #41. But still, they “made the team,” and ranked in the top 50! Find out where, and who, here. Let’s start by taking a look at the top 10. Keep in mind, there are plenty of ties on this list, with some teams bringing in the same amount of money.
