Being a Super Bowl cheerleader is glamorous gig – right? Or so you’d think, but you might be shocked at the actual money the NFL cheerleaders make.

NFL Cheerleaders May Only Earn $15-20 An Hour

Of course, like any industry there will be different levels of experience and with that comes varied pay packets – the same applies to the world of NFL cheerleading.

Some professionals are reported to earn up to $75,000 a year, while a supporting cheerleader might only be able to command $20,000 a year salary. Regardless, earnings for both are still dwarfed by some of the salaries that the NFL players will back each year.

But, overall the pro cheerleaders, will only get around $15-$20 per hour, with the supporting cast on even less $9 and in general half of what the pro CL’s will get.

These figures have also come off the back of some recent increases after many complaints around the world of NFL.

Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Earn The Most

Those at the summit of the cheerleading profession, and in the top 10 percent, can boost their earnings to $124,000 annually or $59 per hour.

There are also many hours of practice to sign-up to and with the next ‘younger and prettier’ cheerleader lurking just around the corner, then the life span for these NFL entertainers is often short.

Most of the teams state that their climate is just too cold to have them – unless the crowds what the dancers to perform in thick coats and woolly hats!
