Cowboys Fans Waited For Hours, Told No Reserved Seats Available
Throughout the night on Tuesday, Cowboys fans showed up at AT&T Stadium in Dallas to wait in line at the box office. They set up chairs and tents patiently waiting for 10 a.m. to roll around when tickets for the playoffs were supposed to go on sale. To their disappointment, they didn’t get what they wished for.
According to WFAA, “Instead of being able to buy playoff seats between $115 and $560, they were only offered the Party Pass or ‘Standing Room Only’ tickets priced at $40. Each fan was allowed to purchase up to four.” Even then, only 100 people were able to snag the Party Passes, which Fox 4 says sold out in 30 minutes.
Officials say that because season ticket holders got the first dibs on playoff tickets, there weren’t many left for other fans, and only a limited number of tickets went on sale Wednesday.
Needless to say, the devoted Cowboys fans who waited in line weren’t happy with the situation. “I just think it’s disappointing. Online I had six people in my living room and nobody could get a hold of tickets. I came down here in hopes just to get two, and for a man to tell me he has 12 in his pockets and is going to resell them — come on,” Carmen Martinez told Fox.
