Pro Franchises

April 10, 2014
By

I decided to look up the top professional franchises in the world.  I was not surprised when the number 1 franchise was listed as the New York Yankees.  They have had 27 World Series Championships.  No one else in baseball is even close.  The second most popular franchise won’t surprise soccer fans.  It is the Manchester United Football Club of Manchester, England.  They have won 19 titles, 11 football association cups, and account for 5% of the world’s paid attendance.  Third place goes to the LA Lakers with 16 NBA championships and the most playoff appearances by any professional teams.  In fourth place are the Montreal Canadians of the NHL.  They have won 24 Stanley Cups and have 61 of their former players in the Hockey Hall of Fame.  The final franchise in this listing is the Pittsburgh Steelers.  They have achieved the most Super Bowl wins.  They were in the Super Bowl 8 times and came out with 6 championships.

After the above listing, the next 5 were highlighted by what Americans would refer to as Soccer Clubs.  However, everywhere except in the United States these are referred to as football teams.  Tomorrow I will list the top sports in attendance  figures for 2013.
