400 Ticketholders Left Seat-Less at the Super Bowl

Super Bowl XLVClad in Cheeseheads and Steel Curtain t-shirts, the football faithful flocked to Arlington, Texas this past Sunday for the forty-fifth annual competition between the two top teams in the NFL. Despite many nearly being unable to attend due to snowstorms across the nation cancelling 300 flights into Dallas-Fort Worth Airport, many airlines gave priority to those travelling to the Super Bowl. Tickets with face values of $800 were being resold by scalpers at triple that value initially and rising to $4,000 for non-premium seats shortly before game time. Some even paid $200 just to watch the game on the jumbo screen outside of the stadium in the cold. Despite an estimated $170 million being generated just by the sale of all seats and luxury suites, somehow 1,250 seats were never set up, leaving 850 people in alternate seats and 400 without any seats at all.
