#13 Houston Texans

Value: $1.2 billion
Owner: Robert McNair

The Texans qualified for the playoffs for the first time in franchise history in 2011 by winning the AFC South. The Texans already were cash cow, despite their lack of success during the franchise's first nine years. They generate $50 million annually from nearly 200 luxury suites and 8,400 club seats, and their naming rights deal with Reliant Energy is the second biggest in NFL, behind only MetLife's for the Giants and Jets home. Reliant is paying $300 million over 30 years. (http://www.forbes.com/pictures/mli45ikdf/13-houston-texans-2/#gallerycontent)

(Cowboys,Redskins,Patriots, and Jets above them)

I read a portion of this a little earlier, but not the detailed break down. I can see why the sales of the luxury suites and clubs make up such a large portion of the revenue. It would be nice if those getting the huge corporate writeoffs were a bit more interested in the game, but if they are paying the bills and the handsome bottom line I can't complain. I wonder how much the Cowboys value would increase if a business would purchase naming rights.

Assuming 9 home games a year, 50 million dollars revenue on 8600 seats = $645 average per seat. And that's only ~12% of the total seats in Reliant. Wow, they sure do make a mint down on Kirby.

There are 10 homes game, plus playoffs.

Where'd you get 9?

Giants were also above them - Texans ranked as the 6th most valuable NFL franchise.

I noticed that the Cowboys generated $60 Million from four sponsors. I wonder how much the Texans generated from their sponsors in addition to the breakdown on seats and naming rights.

Last year it was 8 home regular season and 1 playoff home game. I suppose preseason counts too, which would make it 11 games and $528 a seat on average.

They don't give me a discount on preseason.

texans dropped from last year despite increasing their value, they were ranked 9th overall and ahead of the Jets according to forbes.. looks like the dodgers made the jump into the top 10..

damn, 13 doesnt have the same type of appeal that being in the top 10 does..

For the record, our season tickets don't include playoff games and if you don't buy the playoff games they'll yank your PSL. Yes, we paid for multiple (2) playoff games despite only having one home game. The money paid for the game that didn't happen was credited toward this coming season's balance, which they conveniently for themselves jacked the rates up on and ate up most of the credit.
