Top 10 most valuable players
Recently, the renowned magazine Forbes released a list of the most valuable sports brands in the world for 2013. Here, we take a look at the 10 of the most valuable players in the world for the year 2013.
This is not a list that has been prepared after conducting a poll. Rather, this list has been compiled using hard financial data. To compile this list of the most valuable sports teams in terms of brand value, Forbes took the endorsement value of the player and subtracted the average endorsement value of the top 10 players in the same sport.
10. Sachin Tendulkar
Brand Value 2013: $11 million
Brand Value 2012: $10 million
Sachin Tendulkar is widely recognised as the greatest batsman not only in India, but in the world as well. He’s perhaps second only to the great Don Bradman in terms of performances and records. He has carried the burden of an entire nation on his shoulders throughout his long career of 24 years.
Such is the value of the brand Sachin Tendulkar that his sponsors like Adidas, Coca-Cola, Toshiba, etc will continue their association with the Little Master.
