NFL Earns $13 Billion While Teams Push For More Taxpayer Help To Fix Stadiums

(The Center Square) – The National Football League earned more than $13 billion and distributed more than $400 million in 2023 to each team from national revenue, Sportico reported.

The record distribution comes as teams across the league continue to push for public incentives for new stadiums and renovations.

Most recently, Charlotte approved $650 million of tax money for a renovation at the Carolina Panthers’ field owned by hedge-fund billionaire David Tepper. A day later, Jacksonville approved $775 million of taxpayer funds toward a renovation of the Jaguars’ Everbank Field and an additional $25 million incentive for a development near the stadium.
