With a net worth of approximately $51.7 billion, Steve Ballmer is the richest sports team owner in the United States for 2019, followed by David Tepper (net worth $12 billion – Carolina Panthers); and Philip Anschutz (net worth $11.5 billion – Los Angeles Kings, and LA Galaxy).

In total, 42 billionaires made the cut who are majority owners or managing partners of major sports franchises. They are worth $247 billion collectively. Ballmer, the former CEO of Microsoft, bought the Clippers in 2014 for $2 billion.

Hedge fund titan David Tepper ($12 billion) is the second richest American sports owner. He bought the Carolina Panthers for an NFL-record $2.3 billion last year. It was a record sale price for a sports team. Tepper can afford it. His $12 billion net worth is third-highest among team owners.
