ARLINGTON, Texas — About 1,250 ticket-holding fans were delayed, relocated or forced to watch Super Bowl XLV on television monitors Sunday because of problems installing temporary seating at Cowboys Stadium.
The NFL said 850 of the fans were moved to comparable or better seats. The others will receive a refund of $2,400 — triple the face vale of their $800 ticket — and were allowed to watch a live feed of the game in the stadium.
