Kroenke Sports EnterprisesCHANGE FROM 2013: NEWCOMER
Kroenke has a number of sports assets, but has remained at arm’s length when getting involved in big business issues. But no more with his role in the NFL’s possible return to Los Angeles.

Don’t forget, he also owns Premier League soccer power Arsenal as well as the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche.
