Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan has been named in this year's Sunday Times Rich List.
The 76 year-old's fortune rose by £20m this year to cap off a fine month after his Wigan side recently secured a place in the FA Cup final.
His wealth of £160m puts him at 485th on the list of the list of the richest people in the world.
The Latics chairman launched JJB Sports in 1997 before making £190m from its sale in 2007.
Fitness chain Dave Whelan Sports made profits of over £7m in 2011-12 while Wigan-based Pooles Pies was sold for £5m.
Also representing Lancashire on the list is Preston North End owner Trevor Hemmings.
The former Blackpool Tower owner is in 148th place with a wealth of over #600m.
The 77 year-old's Chorley-based Northern Trust Group has £102m assets while his Trust Inns had over £90m in 2011-12.
Despite seeing his wealth increase by £35m, Hemmings has fallen down the rankings from 145th last year.
The leisure tycoon has also fallen from tenth to 11th in the regional rankings of the North West's richest.
Lancashire-based businessman Martin Ainscough was also included on the list with over £200m to his name.
The 60 year-old and his brothers took over the Wigan-based company Ainscough Crane Hire in 1984.
It was later sold for £255m in 2007 while there is £18m net assets in Ainscough companies.
The Duke of Westminster tops the regional rankings with a fortune of over £7bn.
