Francois Henri Pinault and his family are the richest football owners. And the 4th for all sports.

Even though the luxury industry has gone through a difficult year 2020, Stade Rennais investors they do not seem to know her. According to the magazine Forbes, the fortune of the Pinault family has increased by around 57%, which places it in fourth position in the ranking, of the richest sports franchise owners, with assets of around 36 billion euros. The founder of the luxury group Kering, François Pinault steps down from the podium; in 2020 he was 3rd. Despite everything, he is ahead of Dietrich Mateschitz, the co-creator of the Redbull company. Daniel Gilbert (Cleveland Cavaliers) will replace him this year, leading Indian businessman Mukesh Ambani, to whom the Mumbai Indians cricket team belongs.

The Pinaults in family, at the head of Stade Rennais, are the richest owners in Ligue 1. But not only, according to Forbes, it is the world of the round ball that they dominate. On the scale of all the powerful in this sport, François Pinault and his family are the most fortunate. However, the businessman has never won a title of champion of France, with the Breton club. Even if in recent years, he has made considerable investments, such as the recruitment of Jérémy Doku, against 26 million euros in Anderlecht. A historic record. We find behind the Pinaults, the famous buyer of Chelsea, Roman Abramovich, and his 12.5 billion euros

He remains one of the wealthiest men in Russia, even though his divorce cost him a lot of money in 2014 (3.295 billion euros). Trained as a doctor, he owes his financial success to Uralkali, a company specializing in the production of potassium-based fertilizers, in which he resells his shares, for 6 billion euros.
