In 2010, the Washington Soccer Group was valued at over $1.5 billion, making it the third most-valuable sports activities staff on this planet.
Now, within the latest edition of Forbes’ Most Valuable Sports Teams in 2021, Washington is available in at No. 19.
The Dallas Cowboys stay at No. 1 with an total worth of $5.7 billion.
Here’s a take a look at all of the numbers for Washington, per Forbes:
Worth: $3.5 billion 5-12 months Change in Worth: 23% Proprietor: Daniel Snyder

12 months Bought: 1999 Worth Paid: $750 million
There are seven NFL groups forward of Washington within the new rankings. Chicago, which is ranked No. 18, is valued at $3.53 billion. Probably the most stunning quantity is Chicago’s five-year change in worth, which is 44%.
All seven NFL groups forward of Washington, have elevated their worth by at the least 37% over the past 5 years. There are a number of elements in Washington’s lack of progress. There may be the possession fiasco and a horrible stadium scenario, amongst different issues.
A number of of the groups forward of the WFT have newer stadiums. For example, the Los Angeles Rams have had their worth enhance by a whopping 176%. First, their transfer to Los Angeles was large for the franchise worth. Then, the Rams opened up SoFi Stadium in Sept. 2020.
The Cowboys proceed to stay on high of this record. That’s not going to vary anytime quickly even with out playoff victories.
It is going to be attention-grabbing to see the place Washington is one yr from now. Whereas I wouldn’t anticipate a large soar as a result of present stadium scenario, the WFT has made many optimistic adjustments each on and off the sector.
However till there’s a new stadium, don’t anticipate a large leap in franchise worth.
