A record 105,000 fans are projected to attend Super Bowl XLV on Feb. 6, with around 95,000 inside the stadium and the rest watching from the Party Plaza next door with several massive HD projection screens broadcasting the game.
The previous attendance record was 103,985 set during Super Bowl XIV, located at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., between the Steelers and LA Rams in 1980.
If you would like to be part of the party, there are more than 2,600 tickets currently available at NFL Ticket Exchange.
In what is projected to be another record, Pricewaterhouse Coopers assessed Thursday that Super Bowl XLV will generate $202 million for the North Texas economy with visitors spending money on hotels, restaurants and entertainment.
The previous record was $195 million generated in South Florida in 2007 for Super Bowl XLI.
