Key Alves is now in her third year of professional volleyball. However, she has highlighted the fact once again that athletes often do not get paid enough for their professional careers. The professional volleyball player from Brazil said that she makes over 50 times more money from her OnlyFans account than from playing her sport. Alves has over 2.3 million followers on her Instagram, making her the most followed volleyball player of all time.

Alves is a back row defence specialist, and will be going into the 2022/23 Paulista Championship season with Osasco Voleibol Clube. However, it is her social media, and not her sport that is giving her money to sustain herself. She maintained that her volleyball career was the primary focus of her life, but she could not stop with her parallel career either.

“I am going to the third year in a professional volleyball team and I consider myself a professional athlete. But things off the court started to grow a lot for me. So I started to give a little more attention to a parallel career. That career off the court is certainly helping to pay the bills, especially if professional volleyball isn’t cutting it,” Key Alves said according to Sport Bible.

“I consider myself an athlete and that’s what made my image grow on the internet. So, I’m an athlete, a model and also an influencer and entrepreneur of my own businesses. I earn about 50 times more with digital platforms than with volleyball. It really is about that. I earn a lot on OnlyFans because the subscription is fixed for the whole month.” Alves charges around $14 per month for her OnlyFans, which allows her to collect over $500,000 every month. However, she still loves volleyball more than anything else.
