Man Utd named third most valuable sports team

They have climbed above Barcelona and Real Madrid and up to third in Forbes top 50 rankings

The top five organizations are the Dallas Cowboys, New York Yankees, Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The team value of the Denver Broncos jumped remarkably in the past year, according to a ranking by Forbes.

The Cardinals are valued by Forbes at $1.8 billion, the same at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League and Brooklyn Nets of the NBA.

The Gunners' value fell 4 percent to $1.93 billion largely due to the decline in the British pound following Britain's vote to leave the European Union.

In another impressive showing, every NFL team except for three-the Cincinnati Bengals, Detroit Lions, Buffalo Bills-made the list of the top 50 franchises, showing just how profitable the league is compared to other supposed major sports like baseball, hockey and basketball.




The rankings are based on Forbes' analysis done over the past year for all NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB, soccer, NASCAR and Formula One teams.

The Broncos are now valued at $2.4 billion, up 24 percent from last year's valuation by Forbes of $1.94 billion. Rivals Liverpool don't make the list.

The Los Angeles Rams (formerly of St. Louis) made the list at No. 12 overall, and valued at $2.9 billion.

Forbes says the Cowboys are now the world's most valuable sports team in 2017.
