Jed York, currently the CEO of the San Francisco 49ers, is set to become the team’s principal owner following his acquisition of sufficient capital from his mother, Denise DeBartolo York. This move will solidify his position as the team’s owner, allowing him control over its operations. The league is expected to approve this ownership change imminently.

At 43 years old, York has been the 49ers’ executive since 2010 and will now have the opportunity to continue leading the team indefinitely. He will remain at the helm until he decides to sell the team, step down or until his term ends. Despite not achieving the same level of success as his uncle, who oversaw the team’s five Super Bowl victories, York led the 49ers to three Super Bowls, though he won none.

Under York’s leadership, the 49ers overcame periods of dysfunction and found success under Kyle Shanahan since 2017. Shanahan led the team to two Super Bowl appearances and four playoff appearances overall. York’s ownership of the team represents a new chapter in its history, with the potential for continued success under his leadership.
