A new Forbes ranking of National Football League teams’ values places the Kansas City Chiefs at No. 26 and the Los Angeles Rams at No. 6 of 32 teams.
The Kansas City Chiefs under coach Andy Reid have rediscovered their winning ways on the field, but that hasn’t necessarily translated into a more valuable franchise: Forbes valued the team at $1.875 billion. The Chiefs saw revenue of $340 million last year and operating income of $62 million.
The Rams doubled in value after moving from St. Louis to Los Angeles. The Rams are now worth $2.9 billion, and that value could climb to close to $4 billion if team owner Stan Kroenke is successful with the $3 billion mixed-use real estate project he is planning at the team’s new stadium in Inglewood, Calif.
Overall, relocation and new stadiums increased overall team values 19 percent over the past year to an average of $2.34 billion.
