The Team To Top: Real Madrid Overtakes ManU To Become The Most Valuable Sports Team In The World - Forbes
After more than eight years delivering the highest revenues of any soccer club in the world, once again topping the $600 million mark last season, Real Madrid bested ManU to land atop FORBES’ list of most valuable soccer teams this year. With a value we estimate at $3.3 billion–versus $3.17 billion for ManU–Real is also now the most valuable sports franchise in the world.
Real Madrid, which posted revenue of $650 million during the 2011-12 season, is worth $3.3 billion, more than any team in the world. Los Merengues generated operating income (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and player trading) of $134 million, more than any soccer team and second only to the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys ($227 million) among all sports teams.
