WoV BLOG: Pro volleyball players' salaries

52200 13

Have you ever wondered how much professional volleyball players can earn in one season? We are about to give you a full list for both male and female volleyball stars.


According to our sources, prices presented here are approximate and can vary +/- 20-30.000€. All these prices are net, so clubs have to pay taxes on that around 30-40% more.

As you can see, salaries for women are much higher than men’s. The reason can be that female volleyball (as a female team sport No. 1 in the world as a number of participants) has much more fans and is much more visible. In relation to this, sponsors support female clubs more than male.

In some cases also, the price gets established in a "balloon" process, where in a few years the price for some really wanted volleyball player can increase a few times. The same thing happened in world economy in 2008. Other volleyball agents start to use that value to compare their players and then... But that's a story for another WoV Blog...

Aaron Russell is due for a huge pay increase. Handful of primary passers at his level and 23 year's old to boot.
