1. Real Madrid (La liga)
Los Merengues finished runner-up this year in La Liga and the Copa del Ray, but nab the title of the world's most valuable sports team thanks to the highest revenues in sports ($650 million during the 2011-12 season). Real inked new deals with Adidas and Emirates Airlines over the last 12 months that will bring in roughly $80 million combined annually.
