INFOGRAPHIC: Money in Sport – Men vs Women

Infographic produced by Vouchercloud, originally published here.

 

With nearly 70% of professional sports offering equal prize money between men and women we wanted to take a closer look at the prize money and endorsements associated with certain events and competitions.

We have taken a top male and female athlete from a selection of professional sports to see how their salaries and sponsorship deals compare.

As expected the men are earning a substantial amount more in professional football than women but both sexes are entitled to same prize money for winning a grand slam tennis event. The infographic contains a range of detailed statistics on money individual prize money offered across a number of events as well as a history of equal pay in professional sport and an insight into sponsorship and TV deals which affect the levels of money in sport.
