The Glazer family, which owns the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, no longer owns the world’s most valuable sports franchise.
According to Forbes’ annual list of the world’s 50 most valuable franchises, the Manchester United Soccer team, also owned by the Glazers, was surpassed by Real Madrid this year.
Forbes places Real Madrid’s value at $3.3 billion. But don’t feel too bad for the Glazers. Manchester United came in No. 2 at $3.17 billion.
Although the Bucs have had trouble selling out home games in recent years, they came in relatively high on the list. They’re No. 28 at $1.03 billion, making them the second-most valuable franchise in the NFC South.
The Carolina Panthers are No. 26 at $1.048 billion. The other two NFC South franchises fell a little short of billion territory.
