Josh Kroenke Commits to Arsenal’s Vital Role in His Family’s Long-Term Vision


Josh Kroenke
has indicated that Arsenal represents the primary focus of his family’s endeavors, affirming their intention to maintain ownership of the club for the foreseeable future.

Assuming the role of Arsenal’s majority shareholder as a non-executive director in 2013, Kroenke, an American, has encountered significant criticism during his tenure.

The most contentious episode occurred in 2021 when Arsenal attempted to join the European Super League, eliciting calls from supporters for the Kroenke family to divest from the club.

In response, the Kroenkes issued a statement, emphasizing their commitment to retaining ownership of the club, a stance that has garnered increased support from fans, particularly following Mikel Arteta’s success in transforming Arsenal into genuine contenders for the Premier League title.

In a recent interview, Kroenke characterized Arsenal as a “significant entity” and reiterated his father Stan’s reluctance to sell the club in the foreseeable future.

“We originated as a real estate family with a passion for sports,” Kroenke shared during an interview with Curious Mike on YouTube. “This evolved into our current portfolio, which includes the Los Angeles Rams, Colorado Avalanche, Denver Nuggets, Colorado Mammoth, Colorado Rapids, and the monumental Arsenal Football Club.”

“Our commitment has remained steadfast,” he continued. “We adopt a long-term perspective in all our investments. My father’s philosophy, which I share, prioritizes enduring value over short-term gains.”

When asked to define his purpose, Kroenke expressed his enjoyment in engaging with people and maximizing their potential. “My college basketball coach once remarked that I had the makings of a great coach because of my love for the game and my dedication to unlocking the potential of my teammates,” he noted. “This approach extends to various aspects of my life, whether it’s with the Nuggets, Rams, or Arsenal.”

Reflecting on the fervent passion of Arsenal supporters for the club in 2022, Kroenke acknowledged the challenge of fully grasping their deep-seated allegiance.
