Commanders still rank among the top 10 most valuable NFL franchises

·1 min read

For many years, the Washington NFL franchise was among the most valuable sports franchises in the world. Washington was often ranked among the top five until other teams began building new stadiums, pushing Washington down the list a bit.

Sportico recently released a list ranking all 32 NFL franchises by value. The Dallas Cowboys topped the list with a $7.64 billion valuation. The New York Giants came in at No. 4, worth $5.73 billion.

Where are the Washington Commanders?

Washington comes in at No. 8 with a value of $4.78 billion. Washington’s value actually went up 12% from a year ago, which is a surprise considering its stadium situation, empty seats at FedEx Field, controversy and controversy surrounding owner Daniel Snyder and tons of negative press.

A new stadium will enhance Washington’s value. As of now, the franchise has no deal with Washington, D.C., Maryland, or Virginia on a location for a potential new stadium.
