Over 400 Super Bowl Ticket Holders Lost Their Seats

By

Approximately 1,250 Super Bowl–going fans were displaced at Cowboys Stadium Sunday night because their seats were deemed "unsafe." All the unsafe seats were above empty spaces, so the stability of those structures apparently was the issue. Eight hundred and fifty of the displaced fans were given somewhere else to sit, and 400 people were forced to watch the game on monitors in standing-only areas. Those turned away will be given a refund of triple the face value. That might sound good, but $2,700 for $900 tickets may not be enough for those who paid more from scalpers or had to pay for hotels and traveling, and then had a pretty awful night standing. [WP, ABC]
