Tony Bloom has become more popular in the media recently with an astounding net worth of 1.3 billion pounds.
But this isn’t an overnight success. I’ve been fully aware of Tony Bloom and Starlizard, big operations that are active on the Betfair exchanges for years now.
Below is a full video explaining how Tony Bloom came to become the world’s largest football punter and Brighton FC Chairman, often betting millions at a time…
It’s a breathtaking story, isn’t it?
Tony Bloom’s Net Worth
As reported by Forbes Tony Bloom’s net worth is expected to be £1.3 billion in 2021. It comes from a mixture of professional sports betting on football, poker playing, and being a serial entrepreneur.
As you may expect with any professional punter, it’s hard to nail down specifics as gambling is often a secretive business. There’s no question Tony is up there with the best of them though as he bought a majority share in Brighton Football Club.
When Did Tony Bloom Buy Brighton FC?
As mentioned in the video above, Tony has been an investor in Brighton and Hove Albion since the early 2000s although 2009 was when he made a £93 million investment becoming the chairman. Jumping into the Premier League in the 2016/2017 season has meant Brighton’s value soared to north of £224,000,000. However, this is not reflective of the £360 million that his is reported to have invested.
