born 28 December 1939 in Russell, Kansas) is an American
entrepreneur. Anschutz bought out his father's drilling company in
1961, and earned large returns in Wyoming. He then diversified his
portfolio by investing in stocks, real estate, and railroads. He
then began investing in entertainment companies, co-founding Major
League Soccer as well as multiple teams, including the LA Galaxy,
Chicago Fire, Houston Dynamo, San Jose Earthquakes, New York / New
Jersey Metro Stars, and the Kansas City Wizards. In addition,
Anschutz owns stakes in the LA Lakers, LA Kings, and Hammarby IF
and venues including the Staples Center, The O2 Arena (London), and
the Home Depot Center. Anschutz also invests in family films such
