2020 How much do pros make?

Aside from (the now ancient ) news of Oliver lang making 100k at ironman, How much do pro players make?

Do they make anything?

Recentliny after watching "LA Ironmen - Reckoning Paintball Series by Derder".
I began to really wonder how much do pros make on a yearly basis from sponsorships and factory teams.

I've heard around $30-40k, maybe more depending on the player.

Majority of the money is going to come from any sponsorship deals. Hard to tell, but likely the more popular the player the more they make. I'm sure there is a steep drop off from the top 3 most popular pro players and everyone else

Most of them don't make **** playing paintball. I would think most of them work in the paintball industry but others work normal vanilla jobs like carpenters and things of that nature. If you want to be a professional athlete and make a lot of money, paintball isn't the answer.

I remember when Ollie Lang got 100K to switch teams back in the 2000s. That was a big deal. I doubt anyone since then has made that kind of money.

If I remember correctly most of his money came from working for DYE, not just to play paintball.
