Those three sides are the only football teams to make the top 10 of a Forbes' most valuable sports teams list that is dominated by American franchises.

The Yankees, pegged at $3.7 billion, ranked second, behind only the Cowboys at $4.2 million.

So where do the Chi-teams fall? Despite the nice growth in overall value to $1.88 billion from last year's valuation of $1.53 billion, the percentage drop in growth is quite a bit, since last year the Chiefs increased in value almost 40 percent year over year.

The Los Angeles Rams (formerly of St. Louis) made the list at No. 12 overall, and valued at $2.9 billion.

United have moved up two places on the list after being named the fifth most valuable team previous year.

Behind them are Manchester City, named as the 35th richest team in the world with a $2.1bn valuation, Arsenal at 43rd with a $1.9bn valuation and Chelsea at 48th with a $1.8bn valuation.

Manchester United are English football's only representatives within the top 20.

Overall, however, the Giants have been one of the more successful National Football League teams in recent years, winning two Super Bowls - in 2007 and 2011 - over the last 10 seasons, and are looking to add another before 36-year-old Eli Manning's career comes to a close. There's not a single National Hockey League team in the Forbes 50, for example, showing how wide the disparity is between the sports beyond just TV ratings.
