How much do losing players get paid for the Super Bowl?

This is the ultimate for every NFL player.

The chance to play in a Super Bowl and hoist the iconic Vince Lombardi Trophy is a once-in-a-lifetime experience – unless your name is Tom Brady.

Months of blood, sweat and tears go into an NFL season, all in the hopes of being the last team standing come February.

But it’s not just pride and prestige on offer, with players able to enjoy a six-figure salary if they end up on the winning side.

There is also compensation for players who suffer heartbreak during the Big Game.

How much do Super Bowl teams get paid?

According to the NFL’s most recent collective bargaining agreement, each member of the winning team receives a check for $157,000 for winning the biggest prize in professional football.

The Kansas City Chiefs beat Philadelphia in last season’s marquee game.

This sum is much more than what Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and co would have earned in 2020 for their first Super Bowl victory.

A 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers saw Chiefs stars pocket individual bonuses worth £130,000.

The exact figure for this year’s game has not yet been confirmed, but it is expected to be higher than last year with the NFL’s popularity at an all-time high.

Winning players often receive slightly less depending on their seniority and roster status.

Players on the team’s active or inactive roster at the time of the Super Bowl and who have been on the roster for fewer than three previous games receive half the bonus.

As are rookies who were injured during the regular season and removed from the team’s active or inactive roster, provided they are still under contract at the time of the Super Bowl.

Meanwhile, the losing team receives a fraction of the money awarded to the winners.

Last year, the Eagles, including Travis’ brother Jason, walked away with $87,000 per player, according to NBC Sports.
