Best Sports Franchises in the World

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Toronto RaptorsThe Toronto Raptors are a Canadian professional basketball team based in Toronto, Ontario. The Raptors compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Atlantic Division.

I'm from Montreal and won't have an NBA team, so whenever I watch I always go with my fellow Northerners.

22Toronto Blue JaysThe Toronto Blue Jays are a Canadian professional baseball team based in Toronto, Ontario. The Blue Jays are a member of the East division of the American League in Major League Baseball, and play their home games at Rogers Centre.
23Chelsea Football Club

Nearly all the top ones are American sports yet ter have barely any support outside us. And Man you are just bandwagoners

24Liverpool FC

Pretty low ranking for one of the sports teams with one of the biggest world wide fan bases. Not to mention its history and the number of cups it has won. Don't forget they have won more European cups than any other English team. Manchester United are still playing catch up there, and have only just equaled Liverpool for league cups.

25Chicago CubsThe Chicago Cubs are an American professional baseball team based in Chicago, Illinois. The Cubs compete in Major League Baseball as a member club of the National League Central division.

No championship since 1908, probably the WORST sports franchise in the world

They haven't won anything in 104 years why are they in this discussion?

26Oakland RaidersThe Oakland Raiders are a professional American football franchise based in Oakland, California. The Raiders began playing in 1960 as a member club of the American Football League; they have been a member club of the National Football League since the 1970 AFL–NFL merger.

Most winningest NFL franchise before 1998, 3 Super Bowls, 5 AFC championships, 22 Hall of Famers. - alexmendoza

27New York GiantsThe New York Giants are a professional American football team located in the New York metropolitan area.

Tradition, excellence, class. One ownership family since 1925. The NFL was built on the backs of the Giants, with their great teams in the 50's and 60's in the media capital of the world.

Simply the best..11 World Championships.. Including the Super Bowls & classy fans.. & let's face it it's New York! The best enough :-

Greatest sports team in my opinion

28Chicago White SoxV1 Comment
29New Zealand National Rugby Union Team

Over 76% win rate in 110 years. 86% in the last 10 years. Current Rugby World Champion in a competition where teams from other countries play. Successfully defended the title, only 3-time winner.

30Indianapolis ColtsThe Indianapolis Colts are an American football team based in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Colts compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division.

Nine straight years in the playoffs with two super bowl games. Way to go Peyton! - creed99

31Chennai Super Kings
32Detroit Pistons
33Washington RedskinsThe Washington Redskins are a professional American football team based in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
34FC Barcelona

Easily the best Franchise in history
They have won everything in football, basketball, handball, hockey, etc

It doesn't make sense. How can Barcelona be 29th in a list that is called "The Best Franchises in the World"? Barca deserves to be top 3 at least.

Best team out there, playing the best sport(the beautiful sport), Soccer.

36Boca Juniors
37Collingwood Magpies (AFL)
38Denver BroncosThe Denver Broncos are an American football team based in Denver, Colorado. The Broncos compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference West division.
39Los Angeles Dodgers

How can you not have Dodger Blue higher on this list knowing that they bring a rich tradition in sports history. They should be up there with the Yankees in terms of baseball generally speaking. Therefore, the Boys in Blue should be ranked higher no doubt.

Really? I'm surprised to see the Dodgers ranked so low on this list. They need to be in the top 3.

40Chicago BearsThe Chicago Bears are a professional American football team in Chicago, Illinois. The Bears compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division.
