Only 1,100 tickets to be sold to public for 2011 Super Bowl at Cowboys Stadium

By J.J. Smith. Only one percent – or 1,100 – of the maximum capacity 110,000 Dallas Cowboy Stadium tickets will be sold to the general public for Super Bowl XLV, scheduled Feb. 6, 2011, in Arlington.

That’s what North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee Business Development Director Robbie Douglas, a Rockwall resident, told Rockwall Chamber of Commerce members at their monthly luncheon yesterday.

The price will likely be about $1,200 per ticket, an increase of about $200 over the ticket price for the 2010 event held last February in Miami FL.

Seventy-five percent of Super Bowl tickets are provided to the 32 NFL teams and 24 percent go to the hundreds of sponsors and businesses involved, she added.

Numerous business opportunities, especially for “emerging” women and minority-owned businesses, are associated with the event, plus 10,000 volunteers are needed to help organize the event.

To learn more, she recommended visiting www.northtexassuperbowl.com.

To help celebrate the Super Bowl coming to Dallas, she announced that XLV Countdown will be held Sept. 10 at Cowboys stadium – featuring a concert by Tim McGraw, a “Star-Studded Tribute” to the 50th Anniversary of the Dallas Cowboys, a celebration of Emmitt Smith’s NFL Hall of Fame Career and a rare public performance by American pianist Van Cliburn.
