Established in 2017, the Next Gen ATP Finals is a year-end exhibition tournament for the best professional 21-and-under players.

The event takes place in Milan, Italy, at the Allianz Cloud stadium and features a unique set of rule changes that increase the sport’s tempo to attract new fans while appealing to existing followers.

For 2022 the Next Gen ATP Finals’ total prize money is $1,400,000, which equates to €1,396,185 and £1,213,653 and is up nearly 8% over 2021.

For context, the event’s prize money falls between what you’d find on offer at an ATP 250 and ATP 500 event, but with far fewer players resulting in a solid payday for all who participate.

Featuring a round-robin format, the max the champion can take home if they remain undefeated throughout the tournament is $432,750, which is a 7.5% bump over the prior year.

Meanwhile, players who successfully participate in all three of their round-robin matches will earn a participation fee of $82,250, which organizers prorate per match. In other words, that’s the minimum a participating player will take home just for showing up to the event.

The following sections of this guide provide a detailed overview and complete breakdown of the Next Gen ATP Finals prize money and historical data for reference and quick comparison.

2022 Full Breakdown

The Next Gen ATP Finals is a unique end-of-year tournament, so it’s not surprising it comes with a special prize money breakdown.

For starters, all participating players earn a prorated participation fee of $82,250, which increases with each match. After the first match, players take home $41,125, then $61,690 after the second, and finally $82,250 if they complete their third and final round-robin match.

For each round-robin win, players earn $28,000. The two top players from the green and red groups move on to the semi-finals, where a win nets two players an additional $113,500, followed by a finals match where the champion will grab another $153,000 for a win.

All total, if the champion remains undefeated through all five of their matches, they’ll pick up a check for $432,750.

The following table summarizes this data. I’ve also converted prize money to euros 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.
