Football fans will have another way to get close to the Super Bowl even if they won't be allowed inside Cowboys Stadium.

The NFL and Dallas Cowboys plan to sell tickets for an area adjacent to the east Game Day fan plaza. Buyers could watch the Super Bowl on outdoor video screens near the action.

League spokesman Brian McCarthy said officials are still working on ticket prices and capacity for the new fan plaza, a Super Bowl first. He said that no determination had been made about whether these tickets would count toward the official attendance at Super Bowl XLV.

Cowboys owners Jerry Jones has often mentioned his desire to break the Super Bowl record of 103,985 set in 1980 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. The capacity of Cowboys Stadium for the Super Bowl is expected to be in the mid-90,000 range.

That record would be within easy reach if the NFL decides those fans outside the stadium count toward the official attendance figures. The Cowboys had considered creating a similar ticket – with access to an end zone plaza but not the stadium – for the regular season but never pursed that.
