Sheffield Wednesday’s Championship rivals are on the cusp of a takeover

Sheffield Wednesday’s Championship and Yorkshire rivals Leeds United are set to be under new ownership next season after a deal was agreed last week for a takeover at the Elland Road club.

Andrea Radrizzani and 49ers Enterprises reached an agreement for a full takeover by the US investors, in a deal reported to be worth in the region of £170m. It means the investment arm of the San Francisco 49ers will buy out Radrizzani’s 56 per cent of shares.

“We had 3 years of exciting football with Marcelo [Bielsa] and an historical moments for the Club,” Tweeted Radrizzani on Friday in his first public words since a deal was announced.

“I am sorry it didn’t end as I wanted and I disappointed you all. We did mistakes and we paid a big price for it. I am sure the Club is in good hands and have a bright future.”

With 49ers Enterprises worth a staggering $5.97 billion according to Forbes, we looked at how much Owls owner Dejphon Chansiri is worth compared to some of the other richest owners in the 2023-24 Championship.
