Super Bowl Prize Money & Player Bonuses Confirmed by NFL

Super Bowl 2022 will be taking place on Sunday, 13th February 2022 at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. It will be the 56th edition of season ending grand finale of NFL. NFL has announced that Super Bowl 2022 player bonuses and winning prizes will remain the same like last year. We take a look at how players of two finalists of NFL season get paid for the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl 2022 Prize Money and Play Bonuses Distribution:

NFL has confirmed that for the upcoming super bowl event each of the winning team player will get $150,000 while the losing team players will get $75,000 each. This money will come straight from NFL and will be a handed out as player bonuses. Players do have their professional contracts with their teams and that have nothing to do with it.

Winning Team Player Bonuses: Each and every member 53 man roster will pocket $150,000 each for winning the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Losing Team Player Bonuses: Each and every member of 53 man roster of losing team will pocket $75,000 each if they fail to win the Super Bowl.

Now most of the top tier NFL player have multi-million dollar contract with their respective teams (New England Patriots have an average squad salary is around $2.3m) and this Super Bowl bonus is not significant for them however for most of the fringe players in 53 man squad this bonus is pretty handy as they are on NFL minimum wage (thats around $400,000 a year)
