How much are Super Bowl winners paid?

The Kansas City Chiefs were dedicated to winning the Super Bowl this year, and they didn’t stop until they knew they achieved what they set out to do.

According to NBC, each team member from the Chiefs will be receiving $157,000 for winning Super Bowl LVII. This payment has raised significantly over the years. In 2022, players on the Los Angeles Rams only took home $150,000 each for winning the game.

However, there is some unfortunate news for active and inactive players who’ve only been on the roster for less than three games leading up to the Super Bowl. They are only entitled to half the bonus amount.

Next year, the amount is set to rise to $164,000. And by the 2030-31 football season, the Super Bowl winners are predicted to take home an extra $228,000.

Does the losing team get paid? If so, how much?

Even though the Eagles didn’t end up winning the Super Bowl, it doesn’t mean they’re walking away without bonuses. This means they each earned $82,000 for playing in the Super Bowl, which is a little more than half of what each player on the Chiefs took home

That's up $7,000 from Super Bowl LVI. Also, once again, this amount is cut in half for players who were on the roster for less than three previous games.
