The Top 50 Sports Stars Combined To Make Nearly $2.8 Billion In A Year Of Records

      • The world’s 50 highest-paid athletes collected $2.76 billion over the 12 months ending May 1, beating 2019’s record total by more than $150 million despite the pandemic. But this year’s list features many more notable numbers.
      • 8: The number of sports represented on the list, led by football with 18 athletes. Basketball has 13 athletes listed, but the sport was hurt in the Forbes ranking by the NBA’s emergency pandemic adjustments to its escrow system; essentially, players will likely end up taking home 20% less than their base salaries would suggest for the 2020-21 season. Soccer (8), tennis (4), golf (3), Formula 1 auto racing (2), boxing (1) and mixed martial arts (1) rounded out the list.

        • 4: The number of athletes who surpassed $100 million in total earnings this year: Conor McGregor, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Dak Prescott. The previous high for a single year was three. Only five other athletes (Roger Federer, Floyd Mayweather, Neymar, Manny Pacquiao and Tiger Woods) have ever accomplished the feat.
        • 16: The number of nationalities represented on the list. Other than the U.S., which has 34 athletes ranked, the only country to have more than one athlete is France (Kylian Mbappé and Paul Pogba).
        • 31: The average age of the 50 athletes on this year’s list. Kylian Mbappé, at 22, is the youngest member, followed by the 23-year-olds Naomi Osaka and Max Verstappen. Phil Mickelson (50), Tiger Woods (45) and Tom Brady (43) are the only athletes over 40 on the list.

                    • $1.04 billion: The amount this year’s top 50 collected in off-the-field earnings from endorsements and their business activities, a significant increase from the record of $928.1 million set last year. In fact, the total was not that far below the $1.1 billion from last year’s longer list of 100 athletes. Conor McGregor leads the way this time around with $158 million off the field—$150 million of it from the sale of his majority stake in Proper No. Twelve—followed by Roger Federer ($90 million), LeBron James ($65 million), Tiger Woods ($60 million), Naomi Osaka ($55 million) and Cristiano Ronaldo ($50 million).
                    • $34 million: The cutoff to make this year’s ranking, beating the previous high of $31.7 million from 2019. That’s up from $22 million in 2012, a 55% increase in ten years.
                    • $41.5 million: Serena Williams’ 12-month earnings, including $40 million off the court. That ranks as the second-highest total for a female athlete ever, ahead of Naomi Osaka’s $37.4 million record from last year but behind Osaka’s figure for 2021. This is the second straight year that both Williams and Osaka rank among the world’s highest-paid athletes; the last time two women had made the list in the same year was 2015 (Williams and Maria Sharapova).
                    • $60 million: Naomi Osaka’s 12-month earnings, the highest total ever for a female athlete. She crushed the record she set last year by more than $25 million thanks to an endorsement portfolio that now contains more than 20 sponsors, including recent additions like Beats Electronics, Levi’s, Sweetgreen and TAG Heuer. In all, her endorsements are worth $55 million a year—a number surpassed by only three athletes this year—and her $5 million in prize money in our tracking window pushes her into a tie with Tiger Woods for total earnings.
                    • $2,160,000: The amount Phil Mickelson won with his PGA Championship victory in May, which did not land in Forbes’ tracking window. Had that tournament been included in this ranking, Mickelson would have jumped from 29th into a tie for 24th.
                    • $96.5 million: LeBron James’ earnings total, a record for an NBA player. The Lakers star has a new endorsement deal with PepsiCo after leaving longtime partner Coca-Cola, which helped push him up to $65 million off the court.
                    • $107.5 million: Dak Prescott’s earnings total, a record for an NFL player. Prescott is up to $10 million in endorsements and licensing fees, one of the highest marks in football, but the vast majority of his income in our window comes from the massive contract extension he signed in March.
                    • $130 million: Lionel Messi’s earnings total, a record for a soccer player. A leak of his contract with FC Barcelona, reported in January by the Spanish newspaper El Mundo, showed he was making much more than previously thought.
