Prize Money by Year

Every year, prize money changes at the Swiss Open. Although many fans expect it to go up yearly, it drops periodically. For example, in 2021, prize money dropped 20% due to the pandemic and limited crowd capacity to help keep fans at a safe distance from each other.

Ticket sales, sponsorships, merchandise, and concessions represent the lion’s share of the tournament’s revenue. In a year like 2021, when ticket sales dropped, it’s not surprising that prize money declined accordingly.

The following table outlines the yearly prize money offered at the Swiss Open since 2000, which has seen several increases in recent years leading up to the pandemic.
