SOURCES OF INCOME
Football teams make money from game ticket sales, concession sales of food, drinks, and souvenirs; merchandise license fees (money from selling other companies the right to make official NFL team merchandise), and TV rights.

Thats because of the intangible benefits of being in the Super Bowl, such as more fans for the team.
