Forbes name five Premier League clubs in 50 most valuable sport teams

Forbes name five Premier League clubs in 50 most valuable sport teams 

Five of the Premier League’s ‘Big Six’ have made the list, dominated by NFL clubs, and have all remarkably seen their values rise in the last year despite the pandemic.

Five Premier League clubs have been named in Forbes’ 50 most valuable sports teams of 2021.

 Manchester UnitedLiverpoolManchester CityChelsea and Arsenal have all been included but none are in the top 10.

Despite over a year of dealing with the impacts of the global pandemic, the average value of Forbes’ 50 most valuable sports teams has risen by 9.9% – 55% compared to five years ago.

Forbes uses ‘published valuations for each sport during the past six months, calculated using revenue and operating income adjusted for revenue sharing, and include the economics of each team’s arena deal but not the value of the real estate itself.’

La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid, both yet to officially withdraw from the European Super League, boast that prestigious tag in fourth and fifth place respectively, along with German heavyweights Bayern Munich (10th), while fellow ESL absentees Paris Saint-Germain only rank joint-43rd.

The Glazers own the highest ranked English club in Man Utd but their NFL side didn't make the cut

Manchester United ($4.2b / £3b) are the highest-valued English outfit in 11th, one place ahead of Liverpool ($4.1b / £2.9b).

Manchester City closely follow, tied for 13th spot ($4b / £2.8b) and Chelsea are joint at the halfway mark ($3.2b / £2.3b).

Arsenal are the lowest-valued of the Premier League’s inclusions, sitting 38th with a value of $2.8b (£2b).

More than half of the sports teams on the list are NFL clubs (26), and they include the likes of Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke’s Los Angeles Rams and Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Groups’s Boston Red Sox.

Notably, the Glazer family’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers miss out on the list on the back of last weekend’s protests outside and inside Old Trafford, sparked by the recent Super League proposal.
