Forbes Magazine has compiled a “most valuable soccer teams” list for the first time since 2008. And when they say “most valuable” they actually mean how much the team is worth, as in valued at in estimated dollars.
The “most valuable?” The Seattle Sounders, with an estimated value of $175 million.
The Houston Dynamo came in at number 4 on the list. The team is valued at $125 million. In 2008 the team came in at number 7, with an estimated value of $33 million. Not bad.
I’ve included some photos from the last time I went to a Dynamo game… sometime last year, I think.
