(The Center Square) — The Tennessee Titans' franchise value could increase by $300 million if the team gets a new stadium, according to a new report from Forbes.
That report comes as the Titans saw one of the largest valuation increases in the NFL, according to new numbers from Sportico, which say the Nashville franchise is now worth $3.2 billion.
That's a 23% increase from last year's valuations, which jumped the franchise up five spots in the rankings to 23rd.
The valuations come as the Titans are in negotiations with Metro Nashville on funding for the new estimated $2.2 billion enclosed stadium to replace Nissan Stadium, built in 1999. The team is scheduled to pay $700 million of that cost while $1.5 billion of it will be publicly funded.
