Best Superbowl Seat May Have Been Your Own Recliner at Home
About 1,250 ticket-holding fans were delayed, relocated or forced to watch Super Bowl XLV on television monitors Sunday because of problems installing temporary seating at Cowboys Stadium.
The NFL said 850 of the fans were moved to comparable or better seats. The others will receive a refund of $2,400 — triple the face vale of their $800 ticket — and were allowed to watch a live feed of the game in the stadium.
“The safety of fans attending the Super Bowl was paramount in making the decision,” the NFL said in a statement. “The Dallas Cowboys and city of Arlington officials are in agreement with the resolution.”
Even with all the problems and the bad weather in the week leading up to the game, most everyone agrees it was a great game and they’re glad they went. Well, most everyone except the Pittsburgh fans.
