The NFL and the Dallas Cowboys were served with a lawsuit by fans due to problems at the 2011 Super Bowl with seat arrangements. Some of the fans never got in Cowboys Stadium to see the Super Bowl, while other season ticket holders were sold temporary seats in fold out chairs without a view of the Cowboys big screen.
Up to 400 Super Bowl fans were stuck outside the stadium because of unsafe temporary seats and were offered refunds or tickets to a future Super Bowl game with airfare etc. But many Cowboys season ticket holders were sold temporary seats set up in the end zone walkways that gave a tunnel like view of the field and no view of the much hyped big screen.
The only way the fans could tell the seats were temporary seats would be if they had known the “A” at the end of the section number on their tickets stood for auxiliary, or temporary seats. Many fans were fuming to have paid top dollar for such a poor view.
Super Bowl fans were warned by this blog about the temporary Super Bowl seats and PreferredSeat.com made sure to warn their customers about buying temporary seats. It’s odd that the NFL and Dallas Cowboys did not have the problems with the seats fixed before the Super Bowl with all the advance time to do so and they should have treated their season ticket holders better by selling them seats with a full view.
