Top 10 Most Valuable Sports Franchises On Earth Right Now

We’ve all heard of having a most valuable player, but how about having a most valuable team or even sport franchise? Well, here’s your answer, for at least the first top 10!
That’s right, Forbes has made a list of the most valuable sports franchises in the world right now. By sports, we mean sports. Football, soccer, basketball and even baseball teams appear on this list. So, even if your favorite team is not actually listed on here, try to see if your favorite sport at least shows up! If not, there’s always next year; in fact, we’ll even take a look at how some of these teams fared last year.

Golden State Warriors

Value: $3.1 Billion
We’re starting our list on the West Coast! The Golden State Warriors are a basketball team based in the San Francisco Bay Area in Oakland, California. They’re also the first basketball team to crack the top 10.

New York Giants
