Beth Mead played a starring role for the England women’s team this summer as the Lionesses defeated Germany in the final to lift their first major trophy. The 27-year-old is now the overwhelming favourite to win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award. And Express Sport takes a look at how much the football star is worth.
How much is Beth Mead worth?
Earlier this year, it was reported that Mead was worth £410,000. The forward, who currently plays for Arsenal, built her wealth through football and endorsement deals.
How much does Mead earn for Arsenal?
Mead reportedly takes home a salary of around £25,000 a week as part of her contract with the Gunners. She is also a Nike athlete, which means the global sports giant will pay her to promote their brand and products in person and through her social media accounts.
Could Mead earn more money in the future?
Mead put pen to paper on a new contract at Arsenal last week. And while the details of her pay packet weren’t released, she could well have had a pay rise following a stellar season last time out. As women’s football around the world continues to grow, the attacker could decide to cash in on her celebrity status and pursue opportunities outside of football in the future. And that could see her net worth rise significantly.

Will Mead win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award?
Mead looks nailed on to win the BBC SPOTY award following her fine year for club and country. She is priced as short as 1/66 with some bookmakers but will face competition from the likes of cricketer Ben Stokes, snooker player Ronnie O’Sullivan and curler Eve Muirhead to get her hands on the prize.
What did Mead say after signing her latest Arsenal deal?
After committing her future to the Gunners, Mead admitted she was delighted with her new contract. “I’m so happy to have signed a new deal with Arsenal,” she explained. “This club is home for me – I’ve grown so much here as a player and a person and I know we can achieve so much more together in the years to come.”
