Jay-Z Is Interested In A Takeover Of The NFL’s Denver Broncos, But He Has The World’s Richest Man To Contend With

The hip hop mogul worth $1.4 billion can’t afford the team and would need the help of partners to purchase the the Broncos, which is expected to hit the market in 2022 for $4 billion. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has also been listed as a potential owner.


The Broncos are not currently for sale, but that could change next year.

Team president/CEO Joe Ellis said in August that Denver aims to have a “timely, responsible and orderly determination of ownership” in 2022.

Sports attorney Richard Roth believes there will be no shortage of suitors because NFL ownership is “definitely a status symbol” for the super-rich.

Pat Bowlen purchased the Broncos for $78 million in 1984 and died in June 2019, with a potential sale by his daughters setting up the biggest franchise sale in U.S. sports history
