Liverpool Football Club has been valued at more than £1 billion for the first time in its history.
It marks a remarkable turnaround from 2010 when John W Henry and FSG bought the club from Hicks and Gillett for just £300 million.
According to Forbes, we are now worth £1.16 billion – a stunning 58 percent increase in just 12 months (via Echo).
It’s a testament to the wonderful behind-the-scenes work of the owners. Amazingly, this time last year we were valued at £644 million, which itself was a 42 percent increase on 2014.
It’s believed three main factors underpin the growth; the expected increase in revenue for the new Main Stand, the new bumper TV deal, and increased sponsorship.
Elsewhere in England, Man Utd are valued at £2.48 billion (up 7%), Arsenal are valued at £1.51 billion, Manchester City are worth £1.44 billion, and Chelsea come in at £1.25 billion.
NFL side Dallas Cowboys are the most valuable sports team in the world, being given a value of £3 billion.
