List of English football club owners

This is a list of the current owners of English football clubs, as well as (in some cases) their estimated net worth and source of wealth. All figures are listed in millions rather than billions. For example, £1,000m would be one billion (1,000,000,000) pounds. Only shareholders with a significant interest (above 10%) are listed.
