(Undated) -- Franchise values in the MLS are up, despite revenues being stagnant for many, and down for some. Many investors are banking on a new national TV deal in 2023 and the 2026 World Cup which will be held stateside, according to a Forbes report Monday. The magazine valued the Timbers as the sixth most valuable club. Atlanta United took the top spot at a valuation of 500-million dollars. Portland is worth an approximate 390 million. Despite the fourth-highest revenue in the league at 47-million, the team operates at just a four-million-dollar income. Arch-rival Seattle is fourth at 405-million-dollars.
