Jerry Jones Falls 766 Fans Short Of Super Bowl Record

Jerry Jones attempt to set a Super Bowl attendance record Sunday night came up just short, capping off a tumultuous week in North Texas.

A total of 103,219 fans were at Cowboys Stadium to watch the Green Bay Packers capture Super Bowl XLV, falling short of the record by 766.

The Super Bowl attendance record was set at Super Bowl XIV when 103,985 fans packed the Rose Bowl to see Pittsburgh and the Los Angeles Rams.

Due to some temporary setting not being completed in time, the NFL had to relocate 850 fans and offer refunds for 400 who had to watch the game outdoors.

Of the 103,219 fans in attendance, 12,159 were credentialed personnel including league officials and media.
