How Much Money Can Be Won At The World Grand Prix?

2017 FIVB VOLLEYBALL WORLD GRAND PRIX

  • July 7th – August 6th
  • FIVB World Grand Prix
  • Schedule/Results

The FIVB World Grand Prix is over half over, with many teams collecting large amounts of prize money so far in the tournament and have the potential to earn much more. In Group 1, a team has the potential to collect $1,440,000 (without individual awards included) for winning their pool each week, along with the overall title.

In Group 1, Serbia and the Netherlands have come out on top in earnings with $160,000, as they have won their pools each of the first two weeks.

In the preliminary rounds of Group 1, there is a total of $645,000.00 in winnings available to the 32 teams in the competition and $1.3 million in the final rounds (not including individual awards). Group 2 hands out $270,000.00 in the preliminary rounds and $140,000.00 in the finals. Group 3’s winning is significantly lower with $90,000.oo in the preliminary rounds and $70,000 in the finals.

With the men’s equivalent competition, the FIVB World League, that just completed play two weeks ago, the pay disparity is a wide margin. The men’s side receives nearly $7.5 million in winnings while the women win just $2,565,000.00. The men’s side had four more teams competing, but the small difference wouldn’t make a significant impact on the pay imbalance.

Below you can see the breakdown of monies dispersed over the three groups of play.
