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.
