In 2005, Fowler was listed as one of the 1,000 wealthiest Britons by the Sunday Times Rich List, with the paper estimating he has a property portfolio of more than 80, while his Robbie Fowler Sports Promotions company has been reported to have net assets of £1.58 million.
Other business interests including a large property portfolio have resulted in Fowler’s net wealth totaling £28 million. This gave rise to the affectionate Manchester City Football Club chant, We all live in a Robbie Fowler house, sung to the tune of Yellow Submarine.
On 2 September 2005, Fowler released a book called Fowler: My Autobiography, about his time as a footballer and the issues surrounding him. Since his transfer to Liverpool, he has updated it and included a section about his return to Anfield.
In June 2008, Fowler participated alongside McManaman in Steve Nash and Claudio Reyna’s Showdown in Chinatown, an 8-on-8 charity soccer game at Sara D. Roosevelt Park in Manhattan with McManaman making five of the goals, including one for Fowler.

In 2011, Fowler and McManaman participated in a Select World XI against Chechen dictator Ramzan Kadyrov and his select XI in a public relations fundraiser in the war-torn nation’s capital of Grozny.
The match caused much press bewilderment in the western world, mainly due to Kadyrov’s abysmal human rights record and known practices of torture and rape as weapons of the rule.
Fowler is a cousin of boxer and 2014 Commonwealth Games gold medallist Antony Fowler.
