#2. Hans-Peter Wild

  • Nationality: German
  • Net Worth: €3 Billion
  • Rugby CV: Wild Rugby Academy Founder, Stade Francais Owner

Hans-Peter Wild, a German billionaire, is the son of Rudolf, the founder of Wild company, one of Europe’s largest manufacturers of natural ingredients. In 1970, he co-founded the renowned Capri Sun drinks line, which has contributed significantly to his increasing wealth over the years.

A passionate supporter of what he playfully refers to as “the wildest gentlemen’s game,” Hans-Peter Wild has made substantial investments in German rugby at the grassroots level, achieving remarkable success. Their goal to establish internationally successful rugby “made in Germany” is well underway, with significant strides made towards reaching the top division of the European Nations Cup. Wild’s positive approach extends to his recent acquisition of a controlling stake in the troubled French club, Stade Francais.

With the injection of Wild’s financial resources and his determined mindset, there is hope that the Parisian team can reclaim their former glory and return to the pinnacle of rugby success.
