Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke ended 2022 as the richest man in sports.
The Gunners are still on a quest to win their first Premier League title in nearly 20 years thanks to a stellar start to the season, which has seen them collect 40 points from 15 games. And their boss also topped another chart when he became Forbes’ 2022 richest person in sports with a huge net worth of £8.8 billion.
Kroenke, whose sports empire includes the Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche, Colorado Rapids and Los Angeles Rams, has amassed his fortune in real estate and his stake in Walmart.
The top 13 positions on this list are all owned by Americans, including Liverpool owner John Henry.
Former F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone is the first non-American to appear on the list, coming in at 14th place with a net worth of £2.4 billion.
