How do professional SKIING athletes make money?

Do you know who is a professional athlete? Unless you live in Denver or something, I guess not. At first, you might think that a professional athlete is profitable like a pro (anyway, absolutely NOT attractive), but it can’t go beyond the truth for many good people. So how do professional skiers make money?


Just like in any sport, there are many people who want to learn how to ski and will actually pay for instruction. This may not seem like a lot of money, but on those luxurious ski holidays, there are quite a few beginners who all want to learn at the same time. By guiding an entire group, professional skiers scratch the ground pretty much.

In addition, there are some amateur skiers who want to become professional. Although there is only a little difference between an amateur and a professional, there are many things that amateurs must learn before they can really be a professional. These face-to-face sessions are often very appealing to professionals because the focused attention is provided to students.


If professional athletes are among the heads of their events for the country, a lot of money can be made. Not only have money in winning an event, but think about the Olympics! If you are one of the best in your event, you can win a medal. Do you realize that one of those gold medals is worth it? Over 25,000 dollars. Now that’s a nice change of pace to ski into the snow.


For professionals who are good enough to participate in the Olympics, they may have the opportunity to advertise for national brands such as Tommy Hilfiger or Nike. With these assertions, there is usually a sizable sum of money included for their efforts during photo shoots or commercials. This shot may only take a few hours, but the pay is definitely worth it, especially if you’re one of the famous athletes competing.

Working on mountain slopes

Again, back to bowling analogy – even the pros sometimes need to get a job. Professional bowlers often have jobs in local alleys and golfers can have a job at a driving range. With professional skiing, they get a job at the slopes.

They can guide some skiing for a few dollars, or they just track skiing to make sure everything is safe. Sometimes, you get involved in something that you just need to be around it all the time. This is what happens with skiing.

Facebook spends money on buying global sports licenses (Part 1)

Willing to spend billions of dollars to buy the rights to broadcast live sports tournaments on its platform, Facebook may be looking to encroach on the television.

The Facebook deal costs £ 200 million, or about $ 264 million, to acquire the broadcast rights for the Premier League for three consecutive seasons from 2019-2020 in four Southeast Asian countries including Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia and Laos. made the regional television industry feel the heat of competition from the social networking giant.

This is a new story in the region, but it is not the first time Facebook has paid heavily to buy the rights to broadcast live sports tournaments, competing directly with traditional broadcasters.

Willing to spend 600 million USD for Indian cricket

Unlike the rest of the world, in India, cricket is the king’s sport and of course the Indian cricket Premier League (IPL) is the most expensive sport in this market.

IPL was born in 2008 and currently has more than 1 billion global spectators, most of whom are from India, the country where cricket is the most popular sport. The tournament has the financial presence of the richest people in India as well as many of the country’s movie stars.’

With a hotly developed social networking market like India, Facebook needs more “weapons” to compete as well as more quality content to generate revenue, and copyright of tournaments like IPL is what Facebook needs.

The proof is that the company is willing to spend $600 million to participate in auction auctions of broadcast rights for 5 consecutive years from 2018 of this attractive tournament.

IPL will help Facebook attract more users in India, help it increase users’ Facebook usage in this market and boost Facebook Watch, the video streaming segment that Facebook aspires to compete with YouTube.

The revenue that Facebook targets is the revenue that attracts advertisers from traditional television platforms if it successfully acquires IPL’s copyright.

However, Facebook’s intentions went bankrupt when Twenty-First Century Fox’s Star India channel won the copyright for a record price of $2.55 billion for both traditional and live broadcast copyrights.

How does Maria Sharapova make and spend money?

Before earning millions of dollars from tennis, she and the whole family had almost nothing.

At the age of 6, Maria Sharapova and her father moved from Russia to the United States to pursue a tennis career for only $700. When Sharapova practiced daily at an academy in Florida, her father worked on low-income jobs to pay for rent, necessities and education. They slept on the sofa in the small apartment of a middle-aged Russian woman.

This sacrifice has paid off. 10 years after moving to the US, at the age of 17, Sharapova won Wimbledon in 2004. She received a £ 560,500 prize money. To date, the 32-year-old athlete has earned more than $ 38 million in prize money throughout her career and is the highest-paid female athlete in the world for 11 consecutive years.

Tennis player.

“The revenue rankings of English teams can change from 2021, because Liverpool are having a great season. Man Utd is in danger of losing the number one foggy country. Man Utd’s decline could be. It will happen in this season, if Man City or Liverpool go deep in the Champions League. That was unthinkable 10 years ago, “said Dan Jones, a member of the Sports Business Group at Deloitte.

According to Deloitte’s figures, Man Utd’s revenue for the 2008-2009 season was $ 452 million, more than three times that of Man City ($ 141 million), and half as much as Liverpool ($ 289 million).
