Elon Musk’s net worth: Elon Musk could buy every NFL team and still have more than $100 billion left
Imagine being so wealthy that you could purchase all of the NFL franchises. There’s someone out there who can, and you’ve most likely heard his name. Elon Musk’s Tesla just had a 3.78 percent increase in its valuation, implying that the owner’s fortune has risen to previously unimaginable heights.
Elon Musk’s net worth: What is the value of Tesla’s founder?
According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Musk’s net worth has risen to $302 billion as of October 28, a gain of $132 billion in just one year. That’s more than Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, both of whom have long been on lists of the world’s wealthiest people.
With Musk’s wealth, he could acquire every club in the four major American sports leagues: the National Football League, Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, and National Hockey League (all four leagues are valued at $260 billion by Front Office Sports).
Even if Musk decides to buy every NFL team, he’ll still have more than $100 billion to spend on whatever he wants.
Most valuable NFL team in 2021
According to Forbes, the Dallas Cowboys will be the most valuable club in the NFL in 2021, which isn’t surprising given that they’ve topped this list practically every year since Jerry Jones took over as owner.
According to Forbes, the Dallas Cowboys are worth $6.5 billion in 2021, $1.5 billion more than the second-placed New England Patriots.
The average NFL franchise is worth $3.5 billion, so if Musk wanted to acquire all of them, he’d have to shell out at least $112 billion.

It’s incredible to think that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones spent ‘just’ $150 million for the franchise in 1989. Jones, on the other hand, steadily expanded the squad through streaming, revenue, and broadcast arrangements. The AT&T Stadium, which is one of the best in the NFL, also contributes to the franchise’s overall value.
Despite the fact that the Cowboys’ worth was declining due to the epidemic, Forbes named them the most valuable sports team in the world in 2020.
