JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Jaguars have cracked Forbes’ “World’s 50 Most Valuable Sports Teams 2022.”
According to Forbes, the team is valued at $3.48 billion, as of August 2022, bringing them in at No. 44 on the list.
Forbes said this value is calculated as “enterprise value (equity plus net debt) of team based on current stadium deal (unless new stadium is pending).”
The team’s value has gone up since August 2021, when Forbes valued the team at $2.8 billion.
In October 2021, the Jacksonville City Council gave unanimous approval on a $114 million incentives package to help fund a $400 million project along the riverfront near the sports complex. The other approximately $300 million would be covered by the Jags.
