NFL’s $25 billion in revenue

Nearly four years ago, Commissioner Roger Goodell challenged the NFL’s franchise owners to collectively generate $25 billion of revenue for the league by 2027. At the time, revenue was $8.5 billion. Today, the sum is $10 billion.

That means there are 14 years left and $15 billion left to go.

Asked whether he thinks the league will get there, Jerry Jones replied, “Yes, I do. Yes, I do.”

“There are a lot of influences there,” he said, “not the least of which is the economy, and aspects of the economy, inflation or deflation, some of the same things you pick up in The Wall Street Journal … . We certainly all think we are going to have better days ahead. We will play an integral role in the economy.”
