Carolina Panthers gain value despite losses last season

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Despite a Covid-ravaged season that saw some games played in front of no fans at all, others with only sparse crowds due to pandemic-related restrictions and steep operating losses as a result, the Carolina Panthers — and other NFL teams — scored big in terms of overall value in 2020.

That’s according to Forbes magazine’s annual listing of NFL franchise valuations released this week.

The publication pegs the Panthers’ value at $2.91 billion, up 14% from the previous year. That’s on par with the average percentage gain across the league, though Forbes estimates the average team value a bit higher, at $3.48 billion. Carolina ranks No. 24 out of 32 teams.
