If there’s one person who has become a household name over the past few years, it’s Jeff Bezos. The billionaire founder of Amazon has seen his net worth explode in the last decade, and as he enjoys his wealth, there are many reports that Bezos has a desire to get into the sports team market, looking to buy a professional franchise.
There are also growing reports that the Washington Football Team is high up on his wishlist. According to a report from Front Office Sports, Bezos has been in contact with an investment banking firm that led efforts to sell a chunk of the WFT this past year.
The past year has been tumultuous for team owner Dan Snyder, who has been at the center of multiple lawsuits and sexual harassment allegations with the team. A few minority owners have attempted to sell their shares in the team, which was blocked by Snyder, but there is some belief — and if we’re being honest, hope from the fanbase — that Snyder might be talked into selling, or potentially forced by the NFL after the results of a private investigation are potentially revealed.
There are many things that need to happen before we get to a news release saying that Bezos has bought the Washington Football Team, but this is the first time we are hearing that he actually has an interest in WFT, rather than a vague desire to own a professional team. What happens next, we will see.
