Forbes has released their annual ranking of the 50 most valuable franchises in the world, and the Los Angeles Rams come in at 12th:
12 (tie) | Los Angeles Rams (NFL)
- Value: $3.2 billion
- 1-Year % Change: 7%
- Owner: Stanley Kroenke
- Operating Income: $68 million
The impressive part? The growth.
The Rams had the highest one-year change of any NFL team thanks likely due to the improved on-field product.
One other thing to note? The sheer power of the NFL as a whole.
The Dallas Cowboys remain atop the list for the fourth-straight year. Of the 50 franchises ranked, 26 are NFL teams all of which are worth more than $2b. The scope of the league’s financial impression and the width of the attention it commands is just hard to overstate.
As the Rams get ready to move into a new stadium next year that will serve as a symbol of the league’s power, they’re in fine standing financially to boot.
