Real Madrid have slipped to second behind NFL
team the Dallas Cowboys as a soccer team does
not top the Forbes World’s Most Valuable Sports
Team List for the first time since 2011.

The Cowboys move up one place with an
estimated value of $4bn (£3.02bn), up from
$3.2bn (£2.4bn) last year, with Real – top of the
list for the last three years – in second position,
despite their value rising by almost 12.5 per cent
to $3.65bn (£2.75bn).

Barcelona are up one spot to third at $3.55bn
(£2.68bn), Manchester United – ranked first in
2011 and 2012 – stay fifth at $3.32bn (£2.5bn),
and NFL team the San Francisco 49ers at $2.7bn
(£2.04bn) rise 22 places to take 10th spot
