Let the title of this post sink in for a minute. A sports team that is valued at $3 billion is just crazy. What is also crazy to think about is that the second most highly valued team in the world, the Dallas Cowboys, come in with a $2.1 billion value. That is a massive gap between the top two. According to Forbes:
“The recent increase in its stock price has pushed up Manchester United’s enterprise value (equity plus debt) to $ $3.3 billion, the highest value of any team in the world. The second most valuable sports team in the world are the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, worth $2.1 billion.”
With TV deals and sponsorship deals getting richer. And with United always gaining a bigger international following, it seems very likely that this value is only going to keep increasing. This is a pretty amazing feat for a soccer club to achieve, but in some ways is further proof of the ever growing gap between the biggest and richest clubs and the rest.
