NFL, Cowboys To Sell Standing-Room Tix For Outside Super Bowl

Tickets will allow fans to watch Super Bowl on video board outside Cowboys Stadium
The NFL and the Cowboys "plan to sell standing-room-only tickets for a temporary outdoor plaza adjacent to the east Game Day Fan Plaza" for Super Bowl XLV on Feb. 6, according to Jeff Mosier of the DALLAS MORNING NEWS. Ticket holders "will be allowed to watch the Super Bowl on outdoor video screens about a football field's length away from the action." Fans in that area will "go through the same level of security screening -- including metal detectors, pat-downs and bag checks -- as people with game tickets." The plaza is "expected to include food and drink vendors as well as one or more stages for entertainment." NFL VP/Communications Brian McCarthy said that officials are "still working on how tickets will be distributed and what they will cost," but Mosier notes details about tickets "for what is tentatively being called a 'Plaza Party' should be released in a few days" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 1/13). McCarthy said that the league "has not determined whether the spectators outside would be included in the total attendance." But in Ft. Worth, Ahles, Alfano & Schrock cite sources as saying that the plan is "designed to help break" the Super Bowl attendance record of 103,985 (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 1/13).
