Analysis reveals: These zodiac signs dominate among the world's highest-paid athletes

Out of the top 100 highest-paid athletes in the world across eight different sports, Cancer is the most frequently occurring zodiac sign, an analysis conducted by PromoGuy shows.

Top 5 most common zodiac signs

Some of the world's most paid athletes in 2023 are born under the Cancer sign, including legends like Lionel Messi, Erling Haaland, and Shohei Ohtani. Following closely behind, Leo claimed the second spot on our list, represented by sports icons Max Scherzer, Dak Prescott, and Mike Trout. Virgos (Trae Young, Donovan Mitchell, Patrick Mahomes) and Pisces (Stephen Curry, Luka Dončić, Joel Embiid) tied for third place.

Sagittarius claims the 4th spot with athletes like Kylian Mbappé, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Karim Benzema, while Scorpio takes the 5th place with stars such as Jon Rahm, Russell Westbrook, and Nick Bosa.

Top 100 athletes and their zodiac signs

While Cristiano Ronaldo holds the title of the highest-paid athlete with an impressive yearly income of 275 million, he and his colleague Neymar (121 million), who are both Aquarius, feature prominently on the list of the world's highest-paid athletes for the past year. However, Aquarius ranks last in our list of prevalent zodiac signs among top earners.


We gathered data on the 100 highest-paid athletes worldwide from eight different sports in the past year, including football, basketball, baseball, cricket, boxing, Formula 1, American football, and tennis. We calculated their total earnings by combining their annual salaries and endorsement incomes, using official reports (such as Forbes, Sportmith, etc.). We researched and recorded the birthdays of each athlete to analyse their zodiac signs. Finally, we compiled a list of the most common zodiac signs among the top 100 highest-paid athletes in the world.
