10 Most Valuable Sports Teams in the World – Wall St. Cheat Sheet

5. Dallas Cowboys: $2.3 billion
4. New York Yankees: $2.5 billion

We’re pairing these two teams together because when it comes to the twin ideals of American athletics, success, and lavishness, they’re two that stand alone. Fittingly, they’re worth close to the same amount of money. The Cowboys and the Yankees are both adored for their aura of victory and detested by absolutely everyone else, even and especially when they’re losing — something the two squads have done a lot more of than winning in recent years. That’s unlikely to stop people from getting the famous Yankees logo tattoo, of course, and Tony Romo will continue to fluster Dallas fans for at least a few more years. Both these teams mean something, in that italicized way, that really has nothing to do with their on-field success.

And no one would have it any other way, not the haters nor the fans. When the Yankees stop being the Yankees, it’ll be a sad day indeed. It is interesting to note, though, that even the Cowboys and the Bronx Bombers can’t out-value the biggest clubs in the biggest sport in the world.

3. Manchester United: $2.8 billion

The winningest sports team in the English Premier League, Manchester United (NYSE:MANU) is also the only publicly traded team you’ll find on this list — though the 20-cup winning franchise was largely owned by Malcolm Glazer until his death on Wednesday May 28th. Man United has been in existence since 1878 and should not be confused with the similarly named Manchester City, although it should be noted that Manchester City won the 2014 Premier League title, while Manchester United did not. Even if Man U is worth considerably more money. Which it is.
