Which team is the most valuable team in the NFL (richest NFL team 2022)?

The Dallas Cowboys are the most valuable team in the entire NFL. As per Forbes, the Cowboys are valued at around $6.5 billion. The Dallas Cowboys joined the NFL in 1960 as an expansion team. They are based out of Frisco, Texas and currently play their home games in AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The Cowboys are owned by Jerry Jones, who used to be a football co-captain of the University of Arkansas in 1964. Jerry Jones is currently valued at around $11.6 billion and bought the Cowboys in 1989 for a whopping $150 million. The Cowboys have been the most valuable team in the NFL for more than a decade and most of it is attributed to Jerry Jones’ superb marketing skills. He makes huge profits for the Cowboys through advertising and sponsorship revenue. The AT&T Stadium is also the largest NFL stadium and ticket sales generate more revenue for the Cowboys than other franchises. The Cowboys opted out of the NFL's licensed merchandise agreement and generated large amounts of revenue from their own merchandise sales. The Cowboys are the first-ever sports team to generate a revenue of over $650 million. Over the years the valuation of Cowboys rosse exponentially. They became the world’s first sports team to be valued at $4 billion in 2015 and within a few years the valuation crossed the $5 billion mark and is currently valued at $6.5 billion.

The Cowboys are probably the most popular sports team on the planet and have more than 8 million loyal fans. The Cowboys are the most popular team with more than 8.3 million followers on Facebook as per Statisa.
