This year, the 2023 Wimbledon winner will get paid 22% less than the winner in 2019 (adjusted for inflation).
Both the 2019 and 2023 prize money for the men’s and women’s singles is £2.35m, which adjusted for inflation is 22% less than the winner’s payout from four years prior.
2023 Wimbledon Winner Will Get 22% Less Prize Money Than In 2019
With prices everywhere going up including a cost of living crisis in the United Kingdom that has seen almost 13 million adults now struggling to pay their bills, the winner of this year’s Wimbledon tournament will be paid 22% less than the winner four years ago in 2019.
It totals a loss of £512,000 in prize money compared to (pre-COVID) Wimbledon winners Novak Djokovic (men’s) and Simona Halep (women’s).
2023 Wimbledon Total Meeting Prize Money 3% Less than 2019
The total prize money for Wimbledon this year has decreased 3% from 2019, including a 9% decrease in men’s doubles (£57,642 loss in prize money).
We will also see a 9% decrease in women’s doubles of the same amount lost, and a 9% decrease in mixed doubles with a £13,271 loss in prize money.
A representative for Best Sports Betting Canada commented on the data; “The decrease in prize money for the winner from 2019 to 2023 is a shocking verdict of the direction which the UK economy is heading post-COVID. Britain is now the only major economy where inflation is still rising, reaching its lowest level in May 2023 since September 2021.”
