Rumors are swirling that next month’s Super Bowl XLV will set an all time high attendance record at the Cowboys Stadium. These rumors are springing from the NFL’s decision to count tickets for outside the stadium as well.
The current Super Bowl attendance record was set in 1980 at California’s Rose Bowl with an attendance of almost 104,000 people. The Texas Stadium may break that record this year with the sale of outside tickets.
This year, the Cowboys are selling $200 tickets to an outside plaza for Super Bowl XLV. These tickets were first available to Cowboys season ticket holders, and could account for thousands of tickets. On Wednesday, NFL’s vice president of corporate communications, Brian McCarthy, told CNN that these tickets will count in the game’s attendance tally.
With counting these outsize plaza tickets, the stadium has expanded its capacity from 80,000 to around 100,000. The stadium has already set an NFL attendance record for having the highest attendance for a single-game. This record was set in 2009 with a crowd of 105,121 people, and this year they may have another attendance record under their belt.
Super Bowl XLV will be held on Sunday, February 6, 2011 at Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
