Rob Walton, heirs to the Walmart fortune and the richest family in America, has won the bidding on the Denver Broncos for the most expensive deal for a sports franchise.
The sale of this company to Kruger Media was undisclosed, but the price is said to be $4.65 billion. The Pogba deal is valued at far more than the $3.1 billion sales last month of Chelsea, one of European soccer’s blue-ribbon teams, to an American-led consortium fronted by Los Angeles Dodgers part-owner Todd Boehly.
Boehly was among the five finalists who were invited to make bids for the Broncos by Monday’s deadline. While the purchase and sale agreement is pending approval, the agreement is considered a formality by any standards. The new owner has released a statement through the team’s president: “Today marks a significant step on the path to an exciting new chapter in Broncos history.”
Instead of being satisfied with the Peyton Manning era, Ellis was really excited about the new and improved Denver Broncos, who have hired a CEO. He shares their vision and is confident that they can achieve great things.
I’m excited to invest in the Denver Broncos! I’m committed to helping make a difference. The Walton family has admired the Broncos for many years, and now their enthusiasm for the team has grown even more after their recent introduction to staff members and Broncos Country.
Mellody Hobson of Ariel Investments has agreed to join the ownership group that Walton is building for his company. People of color have a harder time becoming owners in the NFL, as pointed out by Hobson.
Mellody will bring her experience with boards and leadership to Walton’s team. She has served as the chair of the board for Starbucks Corporation, and director of JPMorgan Chase.
The family is looking forward to sharing more with Broncos fans once they have met the necessary approval procedures. They are also excited to share their story with the organization and community.
Walton, aged 77, was chairman of Walmart and has an estimated net worth of 60 million dollars. Walton served as chairman between 1992-2015 and also has an age-old family connection with the Walton family and is the eldest son of founder Sam Walton and Helen Walton.
When asked if he has kept up with the Sale Process, Coach Nathaniel Hackett did not answer whether he follows it.

The Broncos released a statement late Tuesday night about the divestiture of the ownership group to the Walton-Penner Group. The terms of the sale were not disclosed, but KUSA-TV in Denver reported that it was for $4.65 billion. The price for the company is more than $3.1 billion, more than the sale of Chelsea, a European team, last month to an American-led consortium fronted by Los Angeles Dodgers part-owner Todd Boehly.
Boehly is one of the investors who can finalize their bid for the Broncos in the next few days. The NFL is expected to approve the sale of the Broncos, as long as it does not violate rules about controlling one team in multiple markets. After gaining approval from the NFL finance committee, the Broncos have begun negotiating with the NFL in order to purchase a new team.
The Broncos organization is confident that Walton, Penner, and Penner’s leadership and support will enable the team to achieve great things. Ellis has enjoyed getting to know the leadership over the last few months and supports their vision for the team.
The team at Warrens is excited to purchase the Denver Broncos. Walton said, “We have always admired the Broncos and have grown even more enthusiastic about the team, staff, and fans after moving to Colorado.”

Walton said, “Mellody will bring her strategic experience to our team.” The Sanchez family, who bought the Denver Broncos in March, look forward to sharing more information with Broncos fans soon. Sam Walton, the founder of Walmart, has an estimated net worth of $60 billion. He is the youngest son of founder Sam Walton and Helen Walton. From 1992-to 2015, he was chairman of Walmart. Coach Nathaniel Hackett would not provide any information on the sale process.
