Several richest teams in the NBA, NHL and Major League Soccer have a lot of resources behind them. The richest teams in the MLS include the LA Galaxy, the Toronto FC, the Atlanta United FC, and the Manchester United. These teams are led by a number of influential people including Sheikh Mansour, Joe Mansueto, and Dietrich Mateschitz.
Despite being the owner of Manchester City, Sheikh Mansour is not in the top five of the richest football club owners in the world. He is the second richest owner of a MLS club, though. He also owns a number of other clubs around the world, including Melbourne City FC and New York City FC.
Sheikh Mansour’s personal net worth is estimated to be $17 billion USD. He is also worth $4.9 billion in personal assets. He is also the deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and a member of the ruling family of Abu Dhabi.
Among the world’s richest sports owners is an Austrian called Dietrich Mateschitz. He has a multi-billion dollar fortune and is the richest owner of an American Major League Soccer team. He owns FC Red Bull Salzburg, MLS’s New York Red Bulls and RB Leipzig.
Dietrich Mateschitz is a man of many facets. He is the founder of the Red Bull brand and has a long list of side projects. His biggest claim to fame is his energy drink Red Bull, which has earned him a cult following. He also has a large stake in several other racing teams, including a recent acquisition of Jaguar, a Formula One racing team.
Having stepped down as Morningstar’s chief executive officer in 2017, Joe Mansueto has now become the owner of Chicago’s Major League Soccer (MLS) club. The team plays in the Eastern Conference. This year marks the 25th season the team has played in the league. During that time, Mansueto has made significant investments in the team, and he is hoping to make the team one of the top teams in the league.
Mansueto has also made some high-profile purchases in Chicago. He owns the iconic Wrigley Building, which was once home to a chewing gum company. He also owns the Waldorf Astoria hotel in Chicago.

Atlanta United FC
Despite missing the playoffs in 2020, Atlanta United FC is one of the richest teams in Major League Soccer. Forbes named the club as the most valuable in MLS in its annual team valuations release.
The team, owned by Home Depot co-founder Arthur Blank, is also one of the top five teams in the league in terms of attendance. Atlanta United’s average home game attendance is 52,000 fans.
The club has also set several league attendance records. A showdown in the semifinals of the playoffs was watched by a record-setting audience of nearly 900,000 viewers.
Among the world’s most valuable sports teams is Manchester United. The Red Devils are currently valued at PS3.75billion, slightly off the Forbes’ top ten list.
The Glazer family took over the Manchester United in 2005, staking a billion dollars on their takeover. However, the Glazers have been a cause for controversy for years. Several fan protests have taken place over their ownership and Glazer-sponsored Super League plans have been abandoned.
Manchester United was the third most valuable soccer team in the world according to Forbes’ latest valuation. The club’s annual revenue has doubled since 2005. However, the club’s revenues are not enough to offset its debts. The club has had to pay roughly $900 million in interest since the buyout.
MLS is a league that has grown in size over the last 15 years. There are now 26 teams in the league, with four more teams set to join the competition by 2022. While expansion has had its challenges, the league has become a powerhouse. It could eventually rival La Liga and the Premier League.
Los Angeles FC is one of the most valuable teams in the league. The team has been the top-ticket seller in MLS, generating the highest sponsorship revenue. It has also sold out 39 consecutive games at its Banc of California Stadium.
Among the top ten richest teams in the MLS, Toronto FC ranks sixth. They have an estimated value of $650 million, which makes them the sixth most valuable team in MLS.
To determine a team’s value, Forbes divides the club’s total worth into the value of the players, the stadium and the brand. Toronto FC is the only Canadian club to make the list.
TFC has several high-profile signings, including former Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne and fellow Canadian Dwayne De Rosario. The club also has a strong fan base. In the first year of TFC’s existence, the club sold every ticket to its home games. The average attendance for TFC matches at BMO Field is 25,280.
