ASB Classic, Auckland Prize Money

2023 Breakdown & Historicals

The ASB Classic is an annual ATP & WTA 250 tournament held right before the Australian Open in Auckland, New Zealand, and for many players, it’s a crucial warm-up before the year’s first Grand Slam.

The event opened its doors in 1956 and is the only professional men’s and women’s tennis tournament in the country, hosting a roster of 28 singles players and 16 doubles teams competing on hard courts.

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and New Zealand’s strict entry rules, organizers canceled the event in 2021 and 2022, so it’s exciting to see that the tournament is back operating this year.

Even better, for 2023, the ASB Classic is offering its largest purse ever for the ATP, with prize money totaling $642,735, which translates to €598,636 or £528,884 and represents a 21% increase over 2020.

The men’s singles champion will earn himself $97,760, while the runner-up will take home a check for $57,025, 7 and 13% increases, respectively.

On the women’s side, prize money for 2023 totals $259,303 or 241,504 and £213,363, which is nearly a 6% drop compared to 2020.

In singles, the WTA champ will take the biggest hit in prize money earning $34,228, while the runner-up claims $20,226, 20%, and 6% drops versus the last time the tournament ran in 2020.

The remainder of this guide provides a complete breakdown of the ASB Classic’s prize money and historical data for reference.

2023 Full Breakdown

At a high level, prize money at the ASB Classic breaks down by event, with 80% of the purse distributed to singles and the remaining 20% to the doubles tournament.

Of course, prize money breaks down further by round, with players earning more the further they progress. For example, the singles champion makes $97,760, more than 14 times as much as a player who exits the tournament in the first round and 15% of the total purse.

The following tables break down prize money at the ASB Classic since 2000. You can scroll left to right to view the entire data set.

For a quick comparison, I’ve converted euros to US dollars and sterling pounds, which I calculate using the prior year’s exchange rate on the day of the final for a close approximation of value.

Prize Money by Year

Tournament organizers at the ASB Classic evaluate and adjust prize money annually based on the event’s performance.

Factors including ticket sales, sponsorships, merchandise, and concessions significantly impact revenue and, thus, available funds for prize money. Although the tournament strives to increase its prize money, it will decrease it if necessary, which has happened several times.

Despite a few hiccups, the ASB Classic has increased prize money by 98% since 2000, when we started tracking it. The following table showcases that data, outlining yearly prize money at the tournament.
