Packers 17th Most Valuable Sports Team
Forbes released their rankings of the 50 most valuable sports teams this week and the Green Bay Packers came in 17th on the list. They were valued at $1.09 billion.
The ranking shouldn’t come as much of a surprise since the Packers announced record revenue and operating income. The Packers had $302 million in revenue and $43 million in income. They also raised $64 million with their latest stock sale, which wasn’t factored in to either of the previous numbers.
English Premier League soccer club Manchester United was No. 1 on the list with a value of $2.23 billion and the Dallas Cowboys were the top-ranked football team, coming in at No. 3 with a value of $1.85 billion.
The Chicago Bears were the only NFC North team to rank higher than the Packers. The Bears came in 16th and were also valued at $1.09 billion.
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
