Atlanta United tops Forbes list of valuable MLS teams

Atlanta United topped the Forbes list of most valuable MLS franchises in 2018 with an estimated value of $330 million.

The publication estimates that Arthur Blank’s team has revenues of $47 million with operating income losses of $2 million.

Among the factors pushing the valuation is the more than 1 million tickets sold to home games this season and jersey sales on mlssoccer.com.

Atlanta United will play the New York Red Bulls in the MLS Eastern Conference finals. It will host the first game Nov. 25 and will play in Harrison, N.J., on Nov. 29.
