Richest Owners in Sports
Bangalore:The billionaires of the world often own something extravagant like a yacht, an extensive art collection, massive mansions, helicopters, or even a collection of fancy cars but only a few can own a major sports team. Wouldn't owning a sports team be a fantasy come to life? Forbes listed the richest sports owners for the year and heading the pack of the list is our very own Indian, billionaire Mukesh Ambani.
Mukesh Ambani takes the top notch and is the richest owner in sports across the world with a net worth of $22.3 billion. The richest man in Asia and nineteenth richest in the world bought the Indian Premier League’s “Mumbai Indians” in 2008. Mukesh is a cricket fanatic. The Chairman of oil and gas conglomerate Reliance Industries supposedly once spent over a million dollars for boxes at the ICC World Cup final. In fact Reliance is a big sponsor of cricket, India’s most popular sport. Mukesh and Reliance have taken advantage of player auctions to upgrade the team, which won the Champions League Twenty20 tournament in 2011.
