Cards top 30 in world’s most valuable sports teams

Posted by Darren Urban on July 13, 2011 – 9:57 am

Forbes.com has come out with a list of the 50 most valuable sports teams in the world, and the Cardinals rank 30th, with a Forbes-estimated value of $919 million. That’s third in the NFC West, with the Seahawks at No. 25 ($989 million) and the 49ers at No. 29 ($925 million). The Rams are 40th ($779 million). Not shockingly, all 32 NFL teams made it into the top 50.

The top 10 teams in the world? Soccer’s Manchester United is No. 1, valued at $1.86 billion. They are followed by the Dallas Cowboys ($1.81 billion), New York Yankees ($1.7 billion), Washington Redskins ($1.55 billion), soccer’s Real Madrid $1.45 billion), New England Patriots ($1.37 billion), soccer’s Arsenal ($1.19 billion), New York Giants ($1.18 billion), then somewhat surprisingly the Houston Texans ($1.17 billion), and, rounding out the top 10, the New York Jets ($1.14 billion).

    How on earth do the HOUSTON TEXANS make into the Top 10 of this list??? Obviously, playoff appearances have nothing to do with a team’s value…but it IS really impressive to see the Cardinals coming in at #30 after so many years of being the laughing stock of the NFL and regular crowds of 23,000 people coming to home games at Sun Devil, etc. As a long-time fan, I find this quite vindicating.
