How much are players paid in the Super Bowl?

It’s not secret that NFL players are well paid nowadays.

The average salary across the league is touching on $2.7million per year – and that’s not including incentives and bonuses.

Making it through an entire season and then the playoffs is no mean feat.

And as well as their coveted Super Bowl ring, every member of the 53-strong winning team will receive a cash bonus.

For Super Bowl LVII in Arizona, this prize money comes to $150,000 per player.

There’s no favouritism here – everyone down from the quarterback to the punter will receive the same.

Do the losing team still get paid?

Sadly there will be one losing team – and money is hardly consolation for missing out on the biggest accolade in sports.

But all members of the losing side will pocket $75,000 each as a bonus for reaching the Super Bowl.

Fox Business states that the rings given to the winning team – 150 in total – are valued around $33,000 each.
