Cowboys Stadium expects record Super Bowl crowd

The NFL is expecting a record crowd for the first Super Bowl at $1.3 billion Cowboys Stadium.
League spokesman Brian McCarthy said Thursday an estimated total
of 105,000 will attend the Feb. 6 game in Arlington, Texas.
McCarthy said about 95,000 fans will be in the seats and suites
inside the stadium, along with about 5,000 media members and staff.
Approximately 5,000 people also paid $200 apiece to be in an area
outside the stadium watching on big-screen TVs.
The record of 103,985 was set in the 1980 Super Bowl at the Rose
Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., when the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Los
Angeles Rams. This time, the Steelers are playing the Green Bay
Packers.
A record could exceed the population of Green Bay, which is
about 104,000.
