Every year around this time, Forbes releases a list of the top 50 most valuable sports teams. The Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles made the cut once again.

According to Forbes, the Eagles are currently worth $2.65 billion. That’s a 6% increase from last year’s value at $2.5 billion.

It goes without saying that the Eagles are worth a lot more now than they were when Jeffrey Lurie originally purchased the franchise in 1994 for $185 million.

The Eagles’ current valuation makes them the 22nd most valuable sports franchise in the world. That’s where they ranked last year. They’re also still the 10th most valuable NFL franchise.

1 - Dallas Cowboys - 1st overall, $4.8 billion, 14% increase

2 - New England Patriots - 6th overall, $3.7 billion, 9% increase

3 - New York Giants - 8th overall, $3.3 billion, 6% increase

4 - Washington - 11th overall, $3.1 billion, 5% increase

5 - San Francisco 49ers - 13th overall, $3.05 billion, 2% increase

6 - Los Angeles Rams - 14th overall, $3 billion, 3% increase

7 - Chicago Bears - 17th overall, $2.85 billion, 6% increase

8 - Houston Texans - 19th overall, $2.8 billion, 8% increase

9 - New York Jets - 21th overall, $2.75 billion, 0% increase

10 - Philadelphia Eagles - 22nd overall, $2.65 billion, 6% increase

In addition to nine NFL teams being more valuable than the Eagles, there are also four European soccer teams, five MLB teams, and three NBA teams that are valued higher.
