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.

NFL side Dallas Cowboys are the most valuable sports team in the world, being given a value of £3 billion.
