What's the craziest thing you've ever thought about buying with a massive lottery jackpot? A fleet of supercars? Every house on your block? That restaurant you hated just so you can go back and fire everyone? A private rendition of "Happy Birthday" sung by Beyonce? Part of Antarctica? (How much room do penguins really need anyway?)
If you win the lottery, then crazy spending is almost a rule. After buying all the responsible things and spending money on your family and friends, you sort of have to go a little wild and buy something outrageous. What are megabucks for if you can't point at the Arc de Triomphe and say, "I'll take it!". But if your passions lie outside store fronts and tourist attractions, and on the sports field instead, then buying your very own sports team should be at the top of your "mad crazy spending list". Although we have to warn you, you'll need to win some mad crazy money first...
In the list of the top ten wealthiest sports teams in the world, the NFL team, the New York Giants, come in at the bottom. Yes, you read right - the bottom, despite being worth a colossal $1.55 billion. Of course that's a small price to pay if you're a fan of these four-time Super Bowl champions. You get what you pay for, and in this case, you'll be getting world-class athletes who run rings round the competition.
Love them or hate them, you can't deny that the New England Patriots are one of the best teams in the NFL, particularly considering their win over the Seattle Seahawks in this year's Super Bowl. Their history of greatness has been marred by reports of cheating, but we're sure that once you take over their management, you'll be able to step in and put an end to all that.
Moving from NFL to football (or soccer, depending on where you're playing it) international team Bayern Munich come in at an eye-watering $1.85 billion - but there's a reason behind that mega price tag. As winners of an unbelievable 24 championships in their home country of Germany, Bayern Munich is easily one of the nation's most successful sports teams of all time, going for their record seventh German cup title.
If you've got money to burn however, then Spain is where you need to be - more specifically, the Real Madrid football club. Worth a staggering $3.44 billion, Real isn't just the wealthiest football club there is - in fact it's the most expensive sports team in the world by far! With 32 championships in Spain's La Liga over the past 84 years, Real has all but dominated the sport of football, decimating teams that cross its path thanks to the likes of superstars like Cristiano Ronaldo. As defending champions of the UEFA Champions League, the biggest football tournament outside the World Cup, Real Madrid are one of, if not the top football side in the world. You may have to club together with three or four other lottery winners to take over ownership, but it'll be more than worth it when you see Real's millions of fans streaming in!
