In this article, you will get to know about National Football League i.e NFL Richest Teams or NFL Most valued Teams.
The National Football League is the richest one out of the four major sports leagues in the United States. With six billion dollars under their belt, the NFL’s success is undisputed. It isn’t much of a surprise to learn that the NFL is as big as it is. After all, football is the favorite sport of most American citizens. Even those who are disinterested in sports are familiar with their state’s football team. And there is nary an American who has not seen the Super Bowl.
Bettors the country over flock to NFL matches, and according to the most recent studies, American bookmakers online get the most traffic out of NFL bets. This just goes to show how popular the game is, and the need that most people have to stay updated on the latest NFL lines, whether they be bettors or casual fans.
So, with such a massive success, is it any surprise to learn that NFL Richest teams are some of the richest franchises in American sports? In this article, we would like to go through a few of the richest teams that participate in the NFL.
1. Dallas Cowboys
When talking about the NFL Richest Teams and most monetarily successful sports franchises, one cannot forget the Dallas Cowboys. After all, they aren’t just the richest NFL team. They are the richest sport franchise in the entire world. Valued at over $7 billion, the Dallas Cowboys have stood atop the list of richest sports franchises in the world since 2016 (and even before that, they were the biggest American sports franchise).
Apart from their monetary success, the Dallas Cowboys have also seen quite a bit of professional success. They have come out on top against numerous of their rivals on a few occasions. Owner Jerry Jones certainly made a good investment when he first purchased the team in the mid-1990s.
2. New England Patriots
Second on our list, valued at around $5 billion, are the New England Patriots, owned by Robert Kraft. Coached by a legend in his field, Bill Belichick, the New England Patriots have stood atop the NFL world, especially during the famous / infamous Brady-Belichick era.
It was during this era that the Patriots won the record for most Super Bowls won in history, with six (though it is worth pointing out they are tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers). On top of this record, the Patriots have also managed to win quite a few records, including the most consecutive division titles and the highest postseason winning percentage.
3. New York Giants
With just under $5 billion in net worth, the New York Giants just barely lag behind the New England Patriots, as the third most highly-valued National Football League team in the country. The New York Giants are a legend in NFL history. They are the only team that joined the NFL in the mid-20s to still be part of the league today, almost 100 years later.
The Giants’ rivalry with the Philadelphia Eagles is one of the oldest and most well-known in NFL history, and the team has produced close to 30 Hall of Famers over its 100+ year history. Today, they remain one of the most popular and beloved franchises in the NFL, and are certainly worthy of respect.
4. Honorable Mentions
In this section, we would like to shine a light on a few of the teams that did not manage to make the cut. With a $4.8 billion net worth, the Los Angeles Rams just barely lag behind the New York Giants and their $4.85 billion. The Rams are currently in the running as the top 5 favorites to win the Super Bowl.
Other teams that didn’t make the cut, however, have a spectacularly high net worth are the San Francisco 49ers, Chicago Bears, Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Football Team. All of these teams are quite successful in their own right, and certainly deserve the status they enjoy.
5. Cincinnati Bengals
Lastly, we would also like to mention the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals are not among the top 10 most valuable teams in the NFL. In fact, in terms of net worth, they rank 32nd and last. We mention this to say that, the monetary success of teams does not directly correlate with on field success. After all, the Buffalo Bills are ranked among the lower end, and currently are ranked as the number one favorite to win the 2023 Super Bowl.
