The 2011 Super Bowl will be played at the new Dallas Cowboys stadium in Arlington. More than 100,000 fans will be able to watch the NFL's showpiece game. NFL owners met in Nashville, Tennessee, today and voted for the North Texas bid. The $1 billion Cowboys stadium will open in 2009. The venue will have about 27,000 more seats than those in Indianapolis or Arizona - the other finalists. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the actual crowd ticketed at the game could reach 120,000, with fans being able to watch video screens at each end zone.
A call from Jones started the Super Bowl 2011 celebration in Arlington City Hall. Jones told Mayor Robert Cluck, ""Gather your butt up - we're going to have a Super Bowl."
Dallas Mayor Laura Miller says the Super Bowl will bring "enormous" economic benefits to the region.
Fort Worth Mayor Mike Moncrief says the successful effort demonstrates what the region can accomplish when they all partner up.
