Thanks to a strong start to the season that has seen them accumulate 40 points from 15 games, the Gunners are still on track to win the Premier League for the first time in almost 20 years. They will also be guaranteed a position in the Champions League and an additional financial boost by finishing in the top four.

Although Arsenal owner Kroenke doesn’t need the extra money, qualifying for Europe’s elite club competition is worth an initial $14 million and more money depending on performance.

With a staggering net worth of £8.8 billion, Silent Stan, as he is affectionately known by his fans, has topped Forbes’ 2022 sports rich list.

In addition to the Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche, Colorado Rapids, and Los Angeles Rams, Kroenke also owns a stake in Walmart. His sports empire also includes these teams. Despite owning a majority ownership in the Gunners since 2011, he has frequently come under fire for failing to invest enough cash to elevate their Premier League standing.

The majority of Kroenke’s supporters aren’t Arsenal fans.
On Forbes’ list of the wealthiest people, the 75-year-old businessman has a lead of just over £40 million over Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

Robert Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots, completes the top three. In actuality, all 13 of the top spots on the list are held by Americans, including Liverpool owner John Henry.

The first non-American to appear on the list is former F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone, who ranks No. 14 and has a net worth of £2.4 billion.

However, as the Gunners try to maintain their great start to the season, Arsenal supporters will be hoping that Kroenke – now officially the richest person in sports, according to Forbes – digs into his wallet in the January transfer window.
