The New York Giants were ranked ninth overall in Forbes recently-released rankings of the world's most valuable sports teams

The Giants were the fourth NFL franchise, trailing the Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots and Washington Redskins, and the second New York team, bested only by the New York Yankees.

According to Forbes, Big Blue's value comes in at $1.468 billion and the team did not capitalize on the opportunity to raise ticket prices despite an opening to do so following the team's 2012 Super Bowl victory.

The Cowboys, who landed the fifth overall ranking and were tops among NFL teams, have been the most valuable in the league since 2007.

Teams ranked in Forbes' Top 50 list are worth an average of $1.24 billion, 16 percent more than the 2012 version of the rankings. There are 33 teams worth $1 billion this year, as opposed to 24 last year. In 2011, there were zero teams worth $2 billion, and this year there were five.

Among the New York sports teams, only the New York Rangers did not crack the top 50. The Yankees led the way with a gross revenue of $635 million, followed by the Giants ($362 million), Knicks ($246 million) and Rangers ($213 million).

The top 10 consists of Real Madrid, which took the top spot with a value of $3.3 billion, and is rounded out by Manchester United ($3.165 billion), Barcelona ($2.6 billion), the Yankees ($2.3 billion), the Cowboys ($2.1 billion), the Patriots ($1.635 billion), Los Angeles Dodgers ($1.615 billion), Redskins ($1.6 billion), Giants and Arsenal ($1.326 billion).
