Q:

How much money do arena football players make?

A:

While salary information is largely based on the caliber of the player and market of the arena football team, an arena football player earns an average of $80,000 per year as of 2009. This is taking into account players with six-figure incomes, so the average is most likely in the range of $40,000 to $50,000 per year.

Since declaring bankruptcy in 2009, the Arena Football League pays its players a minimum of $31,000 per year. With this being a seasonal position with a meager salary, most players need second or third jobs to make ends meet. The current rate of pay per game is between $500 and $830, depending on the player. This is a far cry from the hefty salaries earned by players of the National Football League.

With a growing number of teams in cities around the country, the Arena Football League is increasing in popularity. Combined with new broadcasting deals to reach a larger audience, arena football has the opportunity to connect with a bigger audience, thus gaining the ability for players to generate a larger salary. In the present, however, an established player's salary is still low in comparison to his professional outdoor football player counterparts.
