Arsenal’s Stan Kroenke is the ninth richest sports club owner in the world whilst Chelsea’s new owner Todd Boehly positioned at 53. That’s according to the latest date collected by OLBG, who share that the pair’s respective net worths are valued at $19.8billion (£15.9billion) and $4.5billion (£3.6billion).
Boehly has been in attendance at Stamford Bridge for both of Chelsea’s last two home games, including Thursday night’s 1-1 draw with Leicester City. Even though the sporting license ending on May 31, the government are yet to officially remove the sanctions imposed on the club, although there isn’t expected to be any issues about resolving matters before the end of the month.
On the other hand, Arsenal fans have long been at war with Kroenke for an apparent lack of investment into the club. But things look set to change now as the Gunners are expected to build on last season’s summer signings by sanctioning more acquisitions this coming transfer window.
Kroenke is one of the richest sports club owners around, but how does he compare to the rest of the Premier League?
OLBG have their own methods of working out net worths and values and their conclusions revealed that Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour is positioned above both Kroenke and Boehly, whilst John W. Henry, the owner of Liverpool, has a net worth of over £2.7bn, which puts him in position 67 on the global scale.
Meanwhile, As well as owning the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Glazer family are also the owners of Manchester Utd and have a worth of around £2.6bn, which puts them at 70th.
Both Kroenke and Boehly have the money available to them to improve their respective squads in the coming years. Let’s see who invests more in time.
