Super Bowl Party Plaza Tickets Could Help Set Attendance Record

Cowboys would have to sell 12,000 party plaza tix to break Super Bowl record
NFL VP/Communications Brian McCarthy yesterday said Cowboys season-ticket holders who purchase tickets to the party plaza outside Cowboys Stadium for Super Bowl XLV will be "counted toward attendance" for the game, according to Alfano & Ahles of the FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM. The capacity inside the stadium is “likely to be more than 93,000,” meaning the Cowboys “would have to sell about 12,000 plaza tickets to break" the Super Bowl record of 103,985 set at the Rose Bowl in '80. The Cowboys are “making the plaza tickets available to club-seat season ticket holders for $200 per ticket, but they must be bought in a package of four.” McCarthy “would not speculate on the plaza's capacity,” but said "several thousand tickets" would be sold. Club-seat ticket holders have until tomorrow to buy tickets. If any party plaza tickets are “leftover, they would be made available to the remainder of season-ticket holders.” There are “no plans to make the plaza tickets available to the general public.” Party plaza ticket holders “will get one free parking pass, four commemorative programs and scarves, and be able to purchase food and drink.” McCarthy last week said that there will be a “separate entrance for those fans and that they will be subject to the same security procedures as those who will be inside the stadium” (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 1/19).
