Richest Football League clubs – including a few run by billionaires

It might lack the glamour of the English top flight, but there’s still plenty of money in the Football League.

No fewer than six Championship clubs have an owner or majority shareholder with an estimated wealth of £1bn or more. Another four have owners whose wealth is at least half a billion.

Compare that to the Premier League where 14 clubs are owned by billionaires. The gap isn’t all that big.

Aston Villa, Barnsley, Stoke, West Brom, Bristol City and Preston all have owners or majority shareholders with estimated wealths in 10 figures.


But who are the super-rich folk financing them and where does YOUR club rank in the list?

Here, Mirror Football has ranked every club in the English Football League based on the wealth of their owners or majority shareholders.

The figures have been collected from sources including local news reports, Forbes and companycheck.co.uk .
