Forbes Labels Indianapolis Colts As NFL's 12th Most Valuable Franchise At $1.154 Billion

By joshdhani

According to the latest list from Forbes Magazine, the Indianapolis Colts are the 12th most valuable franchise in the NFL. Even a losing season can’t stop Indianapolis from getting profit: the Colts are worth $1.154 billion.

Forbes lists their stadium, Lucas Oil, and the fact that they only have to pay $250,000 a year for it to rent as one of the main keys to them for being a valuable franchise. They also report that Indianapolis made $63 million in profit last season. Let’s not forget that hosting the Super Bowl also played a factor.

The Colts’ value trumps that of the local Indiana Pacers, who were ranked 25th of 30 NBA teams, having only a quarter of what the Colts have at $283 million. However, the recent renovations to their Bankers Life Fieldhouse could change things down the road.

The Dallas Cowboys were ranked first out of NFL teams with the Jacksonville Jaguars falling dead last.
