The teams going on to Super Bowl XLV have been set. In some stunning game play, the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers came out the victors, and are moving on to the ultimate NFL Sunday game.
Love ‘em, or just love to hate ‘em, the Packers and Steelers are heading to Super Bowl XLV . The Steelers are heading back in a chance to earn their 7th Lombardi Trophy. While Aaron Rodgers is shooting for his first Super Bowl ring, leading the Packers into the Super Bowl for the first time since they went back-to-back in the 1996 and 1997 seasons.
Record Super Bowl Turnout
So yeah, its going to be a great game, kind of a good versus evil thing, all wrapped up in the glitz and showmanship that is the Super Bowl. And it’s no surprise that everyone’s buzzing that this will most likely be the biggest Super Bowl crowd ever. The NFL is expecting a record crowd for Cowboys Stadium’s first Super Bowl.
League spokesman Brian McCarthy said Thursday they’re estimating a total of 105,000 spectators will be attending the Feb. 6 game. That’s about 95,000 fans in the seats and suites inside the stadium, about 5,000 media members and staff, And about 5,000 people paying $200 apiece to be in an area outside the stadium watching the game on big-screen TVs.
$200 To Watch Super Bowl On TV!?!
Now hold on, I even had to re-read that, and I wrote it!
That’s right. People are gong to be paying $200 to be a part of the crowd standing OUTSIDE of Cowboys Stadium watching the Super Bowl on TVs. For one-third the price of a regular ticket, NFL fans will be able to stand outside Cowboys Stadium and act like they are attending Super Bowl XLV.
The NFL’s calling the outdoor TV viewing the “party plaza”. Hey, what says party quite like spending $200 to go through a security line for the right to fight your way onto a grassy spot, pay $9 for a beer and watch a game that’s playing on millions of other TV sets for free?
Breaking Super Bowl Attendance Record
Besides the additional revenue, the biggest upside for the Cowboys is that those buying tickets to the party plaza will count toward the game’s official attendance. Jerry Jones has expressed a desire to break the Super Bowl record for biggest crowd, which was set in 1980 when 103,985 attended the game at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena – Incidentally the Steelers beat the LA Rams in that game.
I’m a bit confused exactly how people standing outside a stadium counts in the total tally of attendees. Especially since people on one side of a gate count towards the audience total, and those on the other side do. But then again, I’m no math wizard.
