The 79-year-old businessman recently told the NBC Sports network that he would get more than $10 billion if he chose this avenue. “On the other hand, I want to be clear on one point: I will never do it. I will never sell the Cowboys, ever,” he insisted.
Jones made the comments in a discussion that focused on the potential sale of the Denver Broncos, which Forbes magazine valued at $3.75 billion last year. Many speculate that the Colorado team could bring in between $4 billion and $5 billion, which would represent the biggest sale of a team in the history of sports in the United States.
Having acquired the Cowboys in 1989 for the sum of $150 million, Jones has seen the value of his club climb by 14% in one year and increase to $6.5 billion for the year 2021, as specified by "Forbes". . Moreover, the formation of Dallas dominates the annual ranking of the concessions of the NFL. The New England Patriots ($5 billion) and New York Giants ($4.85 billion) follow in order.
Elsewhere in sport, English Premier League soccer's Chelsea FC was sold for $5.22 billion, the highest in professional sports history.
