$1.18 billion Profit:
The 49ers broke ground in April on a new $1.2 billion stadium in Santa Clara that the team expects to be ready for the 2014 season. The city will own the stadium and borrow $850 million to build it. The debt is expected to be paid off by selling seat licenses, stadium naming rights and rent paid by the 49ers. The new stadium will have 68,500 seats and 165 luxury suites. The value of the 49ers is up 19 percent versus last year. (Getty Images) More From Forbes
