On Monday, Forbes came out with their annual MLS team value list. Sporting Kansas City landed at 10th on the list of 24 MLS teams at $325 million in value. That is the team’s exact spot in salaries spent after the team jettisoned Kelyn Rowe and Yohan Croizet (they were 5th at mid-season before those moves).
In 2018 Sporting KC were 9th at $270 million in value. That is more than a 20 percent increase year-over-year. I wish my 401k grew at that rate.
It should be noted all these numbers are based on the team value and do not include stadiums and real estate.
