In this paper, I argue that the true value of a team comes from the coaches, fans, and players. These are the people who influence the monetary and competitional success of a team, so are the ones who affect the value the most. Growing up, I have always been a part of a sports team and have cheered for multiple professional teams across numerous sports, but I have always questioned how a team should be valued. I have also always been in business, so I believed that the monetary value was a good source but have found that it goes much deeper than that. I will be discussing how one needs more than the monetary value as teams may not have the most net worth but do have competitional success. The main subject that I will be talking about will be the influence of coaches, fans, and players on both the monetary and competitional success. With the uses of many different sources, I will be informing the reader of the proper way to see the overall value of a team through their coaches, fans, and players.
