The money always flows for Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes. Super Bowl 55 is just a bonus.

If he can win his seventh ring, 43-year-old Brady will reportedly double the $500,000 he made just for reaching the title game. He’s already pocketed $1.25 million in incentives this postseason.

Brady’s more than $260 million in career on-field earnings is amplified by his off-field ventures:

  • Since joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he’s opened a Tampa retail location for his TB12 wellness brand and tapped licensing company IMG to help expand the business globally. 
  • He struck a long-term deal to make Fanatics his exclusive memorabilia distributor. 
  • He also founded media companies 199 Productions and Religion of Sports.

Mahomes, meanwhile, is only 25 and signed the largest contract in NFL history last offseason — a 10-year, $503 million deal with the Kansas City Chiefs. 

He has since expanded his own business portfolio by buying into the Kansas City Royals, recovery tech company Hyperice, fitness tech company Whoop and sports nutrition brand BioSteel.

Mahomes and Brady also had the two best-selling NFL jerseys in 2020. 

A Super Bowl First: Adding to the intrigue, the Bucs will play for the Lombardi Trophy on their home field.

Raymond James Stadium will allow 22,000 fans on Feb. 7, about one-third of its normal capacity. Of those spots, 7,500 will be complimentary seats for health care workers.

The Big Game will cap an NFL campaign that saw approximately 1.2 million fans in attendance during the regular season, down from its usual 17 million or so.

Tickets for the general public are going for no less than $9,000 on the secondary market.
