Rich peoples' magazine Forbes, which seemingly puts out a sports-related list every three or four months, has released a list of the world's 50 most valuable teams. And the Kansas City Chiefs came in at No. 27. According to the magazine, the Chiefs are worth $965 million, just ahead of the New Orleans Saints.

Surprisingly, the magazine calculates that the Chiefs are only $10

million less valuable than FC Barcelona, a world-famous soccer club. The description for how the Chiefs achieved such a high ranking is rather brief: "Arrowhead Stadium opened in 1972, but had a $375 million renovation completed last year that boosted stadium revenues for the Chiefs." Simple enough.



Columbia-based billionaire Stan Kroenke cracks the list a couple of times. The owner of the Colorado Avalanche, Denver Nuggets,

and St. Louis Rams landed the No. 7 spot with his British soccer club

Arsenal, worth $1.19 billion.

The Rams, meanwhile, rank among the lowest

of the NFL teams on the list (all football teams were represented),

coming in at No. 40, worth $779 million.
