How much money do the dart pros really make?
The sport of darts has enjoyed increasing popularity in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in recent years. Every year at Christmas time the most important event of the year takes place: The PDC World Championship and “Onehundredandeiiiiiiiighty” reverberates through the “Ally Pally”. Record world champion and darts legend Phil “The Power” Taylor won the PDC Darts World Cup a total of 14 times.
This is the current darts money list for 2021
The top 50 of the list includes all darts tournament prize money won since 1990:
The prize money in darts
The prize money has of course risen sharply in recent years due to the increasing number of viewers. The Dutchman Michael van Gerwen, who has dominated the “Order of Merit” in recent years, was able to take first place in the darts money list, ahead of the legend Phil Taylor. The top stars in darts earn a lot more money through sponsorship contracts and the list does not reflect the current wealth. The question “Can you make money with darts?” Can definitely be answered with “Yes”, but there are only a handful of players who get really rich.
No German has currently made it onto the list. Max Hopp has earned just under 500,000 euros, Gabriel Clemens and Martin Schindler around 200,000 euros in prize money so far.
