How much do the Green Bay Packers cheerleaders make?

NFL cheerleaders play an important role in the NFL, especially for marketing purposes. Let’s take a look at how much a Green Bay Packers’ cheerleader makes.

We take a brief look at cheerleading, its role in football, and why seven NFL teams have not fielded a cheerleading squad for the 2021 season.

Cheerleading has been in the NFL for over 60 years, since the Baltimore Colts first introduced it to the league in 1954. Since then, the sport has significantly evolved, with these cheerleaders becoming the face of several American Football teams

So how much exactly do these big-shot NFL cheerleaders get paid?

The NFL cheerleaders are divided into two divisions: cheerleaders and cheerleaders help.

Professional cheerleaders can make up to $75.000 per season, including an extra $2,500 bonus for each game played. While this number could sound like plenty to some, that wasn’t always the case in the NFL.

After a complaint by the “Oakland Raiders” cheerleaders back in 2014 about their salaries being less than their minimum wage, the NFL changed the game for these performers, raising their salaries to a minimum of $15 an hour by 2019

Supporting cheerleaders are still paid quite low, given they are the ones who replace the professional cheerleaders when they miss games due to injury or other reasons. These cheerleaders can make an average of $20,000 a year, with a maximum of $9 per hour and minimum wage of $5 per hour.

How much do the Green Bay Packers cheerleaders make?

The Packers’ cheerleaders made about almost the same as any other team in the league, however, the Green Bay team changed their policy of having professional cheerleaders back in 1988. 'Why?' you may ask.

Well, a poll was conducted by local television station WFRV and they found that approximately half of the supporters didn't want cheerleaders. Based on that, and other discussions, then Packers VP Bob Harlan issued a press release, in which he said:

"In general terms, the poll disclosed there were as many fans who expressed opposition to the return of the cheerleaders as there were those in favor of restoring them. On that basis, we felt the appropriate decision at this time would be to continue without them."

These days, it's college cheerleaders that get to cheer on their heroes from the sidelines.
