Marlins are getting bought for $1.5 billion dollars
I want everyone to let that sink in for a moment. The agreement isn’t totally finalized just yet but the Miami Marlins are worth $1.5 Billion dollars. If you watch baseball you know that it’s becoming funny just how empty the Miami stadium is for them each game. Nobody sees these games.
The average attendance is just around 20k people a game which is paid attendance. There is no way that many people go to each game. In a absolute crazy move they are actually trying to sue ticket holders. They have sued over 9 season ticket holders and a handful of the guys holding the rich guy boxes. If that doesn’t spell team disaster I don’t know what does. After word got out about that people were probly lining up to buy them. I wouldn’t worry though since I’m guessing walking off the street day of the game you could get an awesome seat for like $10.
So how in the hell is this team worth $1.5 Billion dollars? Well if anybody keeps their ear close to the ground every once in a while it slips out how much these teams actually make per year. Even the crappy teams it’s staggering. People don’t think about what makes these teams money. Ticket sales might keep the lights on but to pay the players it’s all about Ads. Now sit back because the Marlins with their horrible attendance and really no fan base still makes over $200 million a year. It shows you how much these teams really makes. The top teams in the pro’s make between $350-$550 per year. Get your self an active owner with a plan and this Marlins team could make a bunch of money considering they actually have talent on their team.
Now a days getting your foot in the door of owning a team is a gold mine no matter any sport. The current owner bought the Marlins from the owner of Boston for a reported $158 million. What a hell of a return on your investment.
