Ipswich Town owner Marcus Evans is now worth £700 million, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.

The authoritative magazine, published today, says that Evans has added £75 million to his fortune in the last year, and is Britain’s 143rd richest person.

The Marcus Evans Group is now a media, conference and marketing company, employing 3,000 people worldwide.

News that Evans has increased his wealth is certain to be of great interest to Ipswich Town fans, who are waiting to see if the club’s owner will give manager Mick McCarthy funds to strengthen the squad to push for a long-awaited return to the Premier League next season.
