NFL Finance Group Supports Broncos Sale To Walmart Heir


The NFL finance committee is unanimously recommending the league owners approve the proposed $4.65 billion sale of the Denver Broncos to the heir of the Walmart fortune.

Team owners will gather Aug. 9 to vote on the sale. Twenty-four yes votes are needed among the 32 teams to approve the sale which is the largest for a sports team anywhere in the world.

The ownership group led by former Walmart chairman Rob Walton won the bidding for the team that’s been run by the Pat Bowlen Trust for several years.
