SHARE Bears are 8th most valuable NFL franchise, according to Forbes

The Bears held steady, ranking 8th in Forbes’ annual valuation of NFL franchises.

The Bears value, though, went up from $1.09 billion to $1.19 billion, according to Forbes.

Here’s what Forbes wrote: “The Bears hiked ticket prices for non-club seats prior to the 2012 season between $2 and $10. Potential ticking time bombs: The city, which shouldered roughly two-thirds of Soldier Field’s cost, will see its annual debt obligations increase from $6 million to $88 million by 2032. Meanwhile, as part of the lease agreement between the Bears and the Chicago Park District, the city has promised to upgrade the stadium every ten years to make sure it is in the NFL’s top quartile.”

Forbes listed the Bears profit as $65 million.

The Dallas Cowboys are once again the league’s most valuable franchise.

Here is the list.
