Club: Arsenal

Worth $4 billion

Stan Kroenke is a sports tycoon in the sense that he owns a vast amount of sports teams he owns.

He has significant stakes in the NFL’s St. Louis Rams, NBA’s Denver Nuggets, NHL’s Colorado Avalanche, AFL’s Colorado Crush, MLS’ Colorado Rapids and NLL’s Colorado Mammoth as well as the controlling stake in Arsenal.

The deal that saw him purchase over 50% of Arsenal shares cost him over $1.2 billion but has famously failed to bring any success to the Emirates Stadium.

Fans continue to worry that he only sees the club as a source of funds for his own means. Well you don't earn $4 billion by throwing money away.
