According to an article on, the Minnesota Vikings are among the 50 most valuable sports teams in the world. Ok, to be completely honest, every NFL team made the list; and at 35th the Vikes are right behind the Cleveland Browns listed at #34.

European soccer teams took the top-three spots, with Real Madrid on top. The New York Yankees came in as the top non-soccer club at #4 on the list. The Dallas Cowboys were the top ranking NFL team at #5, followed by the Patriots at #6. The New York Knicks were the top NBA team at #23. The Toronto Maple Leafs led the NHL at #33.

The Vikings are sandwiched between the Browns at #34 and the Saints at #36.

I know what you're thinking, and the answer is, "No, not by a long-shot." The Twins, Wild, and Timberwolves did not make the list.
