Mrs. Ilitch named 24th-richest pro sports team owner by Forbes

Forbes’ Kurt Badenhausen has published Forbes’ annual list of the richest owners in professional sports. Red Wings owner Marian Ilitch is listed at the halfway mark of the 42-team-owner list:

24. Marian Ilitch

NET WORTH: $4 billion

SOURCE OF WEALTH: Little Caesars

TEAM(S): Detroit Red Wings

Continued; Mrs. Ilitch isn’t listed as the Tigers’ owner as the team is held in a family trust due to Mrs. I’s ownership of the MotorCity Casino.

It’s also worth mentioning that the Ilitches run Olympia Entertainment, Olympia Development, and several Foodservice companies in addition to Little Caesars.
