Who are the Ricketts family? Net worth & consortium partners

The Ricketts family are among the final bidders hoping to seal a takeover at Chelsea, as current owner Roman Abramovich looks to sell after 19 years in charge of Stamford Bridge.

The Ricketts family is headed by patriarch Joe Ricketts, co-owner of baseball’s Chicago Cubs with his four children: Tom, Laura, Pete and Todd. It’s Tom, who serves as president of the Cubs, and Laura, who are specifically leading the bid for Chelsea.

Tom led the family’s acquisition of the Cubs in 2009, estimated to be worth up to $900 million. He is the co-founder and former CEO of a financial services company after initially working at other companies early in his business career.
