Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke has enjoyed a mega boom over the last year with his net worth growing amid a huge transfer window at Emirates Stadium under Mikel Arteta.

The Gunners have been among the biggest spenders across Europe this summer as Kroenke backs Arteta’s plans. Arsenal have signed Declan Rice in a club-record transfer, brought Kai Havertz to north London from west and also convinced Jurrien Timber to leave Ajax so far.

Yet Arsenal sporting director Edu is still hard at work negotiating further transfers. Kroenke has put his money where his mouth is after seeing Arteta take the Gunners to second place in the Premier League. Arteta also secured the team their return to the Champions League.

Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke enjoys an amazing spell in sports

Kroenke’s time as Arsenal’s owner had often sparked dissatisfaction amongst the fanbase in his first few years in charge. But with his son, Josh Kroenke – the vice-chairman of KSE and KSE UK and a director at Arsenal – and manager Arteta, they are creating something special.

The past few years have also seen Kroenke enjoy an amazing spell with some of the sporting sides he owns. His NFL franchise, the LA Rams, beat the Cincinnati Bengals to win the Super Bowl in 2022. While the Denver Nuggets won the NBA Finals for their first-ever title in 2023.
