$200 to Watch the Super Bowl Outside the Stadium?

Posted By on Thu, Jan 20, 2011 at 11:30 AM

Super Bowl tickets are certainly tough to come by and really expensive, but would you consider sitting outside the stadium where the game is being played and watching it on a giant TV instead?

The NFL will sell a $200 ticket to the game, but it comes with a catch. Fans will have to sit on the grass on the East Side of the stadium and watch the game on the huge outside HD TV screens.

"We've never done this before," Brian McCarthy, the NFL's vice president of corporate communications, said Wednesday.

The offer has been extended to Cowboys Club Seat season ticket holders, and must be purchased in blocks of four. Those who purchase the block of tickets receive a free parking pass, four Super Bowl programs and four scarves.

Dropping $800 so you can sit on a lawn seems like a terrible deal to me (even when they throw in the scarves), so why not just gather together your crew and hit one of Tucson's great establishments showing the game? Conveniently, we've assembled a guide to where to watch the Big Game with details on the TV situation and what's happening with food and drink specials.

You won't have to watch rich people watch into the stadium past you, save yourself a trip to Texas, and have quite a bit of money left in your pocket while having just as good a time.
