How Much Is Vitality Paying Their Star Man? ZywOo’s Salary Revealed

Vitality locks down star player Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut with a new contract, with details now emerging regarding ZywOo's salary


French prodigy Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut could be the new king of Counter-Striker salaries. Following his contract extension with Vitality, reports from Last Hit, citing French sports giant L'Equipe, suggest ZywOo now commands a hefty six-figure salary. How much is ZywOo’s salary right now? Read on to find out.

How Much is ZywOo’s Salary After Signing the New Contract?

French streamer and insider Sebastien “KRL” Perez discussed ZywOo's salary on stream, but the exact amount remains undisclosed. Last Hit places ZywOo among the top 4 highest-paid French athletes, excluding footballers. This suggests his earnings surpass the country's top rugby players and align with those of elite handball and basketball performers. According to KRL, ZywOo’s new salary is within the €83k to €100k range.

Should these reports hold true, ZywOo's salary would be a game-changer, eclipsing the rumored earnings of other top CS:GO players. Transparency regarding top earners in the scene is limited, but whispers and reports suggest average salaries for star players hover around $30,000-$40,000 monthly. Affiliation with a well-funded organization, like NiKo with G2 Esports, can potentially inflate these figures slightly.

On March 12th, ZywOo secured his future with Vitality, signing a contract extension that locks him in with the organization until 2026. This move suggests Vitality's long-term vision for ZywOo, potentially including a future role as an in-game leader (IGL). Widely considered the world's top player, ZywOo's dominance remains unchallenged, even with the emergence of promising talent like “donk.” However, due to donk's relatively new presence in the scene, a definitive comparison might be premature.
