WWE released their Super Bowl LVIII title belt on Monday after the Kansas City Chiefs secured their second straight title against the San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas.
The wrestling promotion has awarded the winners of the Super Bowl with a customized belt for several years. As a result, the NFL signed a multi-year licensing deal with WWE in August of 2023, which allowed them to sell the belts.
The Chiefs received the belt during their locker room celebrations postgame before it became available for purchase at the NFL and WWE stores. It can also be bought at Fanatics.
Inspired by the game’s first trip to Sin City, the belt features the Super Bowl LVIII logo within a gold center plate and the word ‘champion’ in gold letters. The Chiefs’ logo is also emblazoned on the side plates that sit above the purple and red color scheme.
While the belt is currently priced at $549.99, the shops have offered a limited 25 per cent-off discount that expires at 11.59pm on Monday.
