In 2024, big-name players like Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce walked away with $164,000, which might not be as high as fans might think. The situation won’t change in 2025, as the winners of Super Bowl 59 will earn around $171,000. The Kansas City Chiefs won’t mind the prize money one bit, as the majority of them are already on big-money contracts for playing in the NFL.
