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.

  • His 700 Million fortune is "based on a 90 million black hole". A 90 million that he has loaned at low interest to ITFC? Ray, so you're saying it should be 610 million? What about all the magic tax savings you and the plebs say he is getting? and the 40k rent from the training ground and the whopping 1 million he got for selling it to himself?! ha ha.
