Clark Hunt Net Worth: How Much Money Has the Chiefs’ Owner Made in His Career?

Clark Hunt's Kansas City Chiefs have enjoyed considerable on-field riches in the past 10 years or so. Just how rich is KC's co-owner off the field?

The Hunt name has been synonymous with the Kansas City Chiefs since the team’s inception in 1959.

Lamar Hunt owned the team until his death in 2006. His son, Clark Hunt, took over as a co-owner soon thereafter. That’s a post he’s maintained for almost two decades now.

Hunt, in conjunction with head coach Andy Reid and quarterback Patrick Mahomes, has overseen the most successful prolonged stretch in franchise history. Since 2016, the Chiefs have captured eight division crowns, three conference championships, and two Super Bowl victories.

There are myriad ways to frame Kansas City’s recent successes. One this author found particularly compelling is that KC has won as many division titles in the past eight seasons as it did in the preceding 55.

What Is Clark Hunt’s Net Worth?

Being co-owner of an NFL franchise is a lucrative undertaking. Successful teams tend to be even more profitable, that much is evidenced by Clark Hunt’s considerable fortune.

Clark’s net worth is reportedly a staggering $2 billion, according to Celebrity Net Worth. As you’d expect for a man with that kind of bankroll, his investment portfolio is not restricted solely to the Chiefs, even if the team is the primary source of his generational wealth.

Hunt’s sports ownership is not restricted to the Chiefs alone. In fact, he’s also part owner of Major League Soccer’s FC Dallas with his brother, Dan Hunt. The MLS is one of Clark’s largest investments, as he is a founding investor-owner in the U.S.-based soccer league.

Both teams under Hunt’s ownership umbrella are housed within Hunt Sports Group, of which Hunt is the chairman. Clark would seem to be at the head of the table, but his brothers, Dan and Lamar, and their sister, Sharron, are also all affiliated with the organization.

Wealth is a long-standing trait within the Hunt family. Clark’s grandfather, H.L. Hunt, was an oil tycoon in the vein of Jerry Jones. He is believed to be one of the wealthiest people in the world at the time of his death in 1974, with an estimated net worth of $2-3 billion dollars. Adjusted for inflation, that’s equivalent to approximately $12 billion in the present day.

Next in the family tree came Lamar Hunt, Clark’s father. Lamar was the original owner of the Chiefs. He’s also the namesake behind the Lamar Hunt Trophy, awarded to the AFC champion annually. Of course, Clark’s Chiefs have captured the trophy named after his father three times in the past five years.

They’ll be looking to make it four in six this Sunday when they visit the Baltimore Ravens. The Hunt family will live comfortably regardless. According to Business Insider, the family had a combined net worth of $15.5 billion as of 2020. And they’re on the cusp of ascending to the category of football’s next great dynasty.

As the old adage goes, the rich just keep on getting richer.
