Forbes: Seattle Seahawks No. 25?

Published on July 13, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Forbes has come out with its annual list of the Top 50 most valuable sports franchises – in the world – and the Seahawks check in at a very respectable No. 25, with an estimated value of $989 million.

Says Forbes: “The Seahawks made the playoffs in January despite a losing record—the first time that has happened in a full NFL season. Owner Paul Allen lured head coach Pete Carroll from USC with a five-year, $35 million contract.”

Just to show how powerful – and profitable – the league is, the Seahawks are the 19th NFL team on the list. All 32 NFL teams made the Top 50, led by the Cowboys are at No. 2 and the Redskins at No. 4.

Sitting in the top spot? The Manchester United soccer team that plays Sounders FC at CenturyLink Field on July 20. Man U. is valued at $1.86 million, and owned by the Glazer Family – which also owns the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are No. 18 on the list.

Mike Sando at ESPN.com has crunched the XXXL-sized numbers and offers his observations. Says Sando: “If NFL owners cared only about money and not all the other benefits that come with their standing in the sports world, most of them would sell. That thought came to mind upon reading through (the list).”
