NFL brings 400 seat-less fans inside

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The NFL says 400 ticketed Super Bowl fans who wound up not having seats are at least inside the stadium.

League spokesman Brian McCarthy issued a statement shortly after kickoff saying the fans have been allowed into the field-level club behind the Pittsburgh Steelers bench, where they could watch the game on monitors. Or, they can view the game in person on standing-room platforms in each corner of Cowboys Stadium.

The fans will also get a refund equal to triple the face value of the $800 tickets. The temporary seats they were supposed to have were deemed unsafe, leading to an angry scene outside the stadium as those affected were sent to a fenced-off area while officials tried to sort things out.

Another 850 fans were relocated to unused seats.
