Billionaires have a lot of cash to drop. Some are known to spend it on mansions. Others, private planes and luxury cars. And others still? They just buy their own sports team.

In October, CEOWORLD magazine ranked the wealthiest owners of major league sports teams. The top 20 owners have a combined net worth of $195.9 billion.

For some, owning one team isn’t enough. In fact, two of the top five richest sports team owners own multiple teams. Stanley Kroenke, a real-estate mogul married to a Walmart heiress, owns five teams across different sports.

From football to basketball, here’s a look at the 20 richest owners of major sports league teams, ranked in ascending order of wealth. Net worth figures included below are current as of January 30, 2020.
