The Next Generation ATP Finals is an annual tennis tournament for the eight best 21-and-under players of the season. It's currently known as the Intesa Sanpaolo Next Gen ATP Finals due to sponsorship reasons.
For 2021 the tournament will take place over five days at the Allianz Cloud stadium in Milan which has a capacity of 5,420 and usually hosts basketball and volleyball games.
Just like the ATP Tour Finals in Torino, the format for the competition consists of two round-robin groups, followed by the semi-finals and final. The event is played on a singles-only court.
While the ATP does not distribute points for the ATP Rankings for the participants, that's not the case with prize money which is in plentiful supply.
For 2021 the total prize pool for the Next Gen ATP Finals is $1,300,000 which is down 7.14% vs 2019. The event was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic.
Of course, it somewhat pales in comparison to the prize money offered at the Nitto ATP Finals but should a player go through the tournament undefeated, they'll take home $402,400 which is slightly above the average salary for someone under the age of 21.
The price money allocation has changed slightly this year, with losers in the knock out stages not adding to their prize money.
For example in 2019 losers in the semi-finals received $63,000, this year they won't receive anything other than the amount they won during the round-robin stage and participation fees. This has been offset by increasing the participation fees by 42.9% compared to 2019.
