Kroenke Jr., a financial management graduate from the University of Missouri, will combine his new role with that of being president of the Denver Nuggets basketball team –- a post he has held since 2010.

The 33-year-old feels his arrival at the Emirates Stadium is evidence of the Kroenke family's commitment to Arsenal.

“It is an honour to join the board of Arsenal," he told the club's official website. "This reaffirms our family’s long-term commitment to the club.

“Arsenal is in a strong position on and off the pitch. We are enjoying a period of growth for Arsenal and the Premier League.

"We look forward to an exciting future that includes winning trophies, increasing our already impressive support around the globe and extending our commercial opportunities.

"We strongly feel our experience in sports management, marketing and broadcast will be an asset to an already impressive board.”

Kroenke Sr. has been nicknamed 'Silent Stan' by Arsenal fans for his refusal to voice his opinion on club matters.
