At the beginning of the new millennium, Clark’s father began working for the team Kansas City Wizards. Besides helping him with the team, he also played an important role in the creation of the Major League Soccer.
Starting in 2005, he began working for the Kansas City Chiefs as their chairman. His father passed away the following year, and he and his siblings inherited the ownership of the chiefs. He sporadically began working for the team as both a CEO, president, and general manager. In 2009, by the first season of the team, Clark was able to rack up more than $5 million annually. Additional income also came after the Chiefs’ appearances and performances at the NFL Seasons.
