The Cowboys top the list of 50 franchises at a valuation of $5 billion.
To make the cut, teams had to be worth at least $2.075 billion, up $125 million from a year ago and up $1.2 billion from just five years ago.
Of the top 50 teams, 26 are in the NFL, which is actually down three from 2018. The New York Yankees rank No. 2 with a value of $4.6 billion. They’re one of seven MLB teams in the rankings. The New York Knicks are the top-ranked of nine NBA franchises at No. 5 with a value of $4 billion. The Dallas Mavericks rank No. 43 at $2.25 billion.
Eight soccer clubs are on the list, including Real Madrid, which ranks No. 3 at $4.2 billion. Real Madrid was the last team to be No. 1 before the Cowboys took over in 2016.
