Average NFL franchise value jumps 18% to $4.14 billion
The value of the average National Football League (NFL) franchise went up 18 percent over last year to $4.14 billion.
The collective value of the NFL franchises, including team-related businesses and real estate held by owners, is US$132 billion.
At $7.64 billion, up 10% from 2021, the Dallas Cowboys maintained their position as the most valued franchise in the NFL and the entire sport. Additionally, this put the Cowboys US$630 million ahead of Major League Baseball's (MLB) New York Yankees.
The NFL has 16 franchises worth at least $4 billion, way more than the four in the, and three in the National Basketball Association (NBA),
Another fantastic year off the field for the NFL. With the league giving each of its teams $347.3 million, franchises saw their national revenue share for the 2021 season climb by more than 12 percent year over year. In the 2021/22 season, total sponsorship rights fee revenue grew 12 percent year over year to $1.8 billion.
The NFL generated $17.4 billion in cumulative revenue for 2021, nearly twice more than its closest competitor, the NBA.
