The Dallas Cowboys will be the official host of the 2011 Super Bowl. “Cowboys Stadium” or “Jerry’s World”, named after owner Jerry Jones is one of the largest, most spectacular looking venues in the country. Cowboys Stadium holds 80,000 seats, but has the ability to expand and hold over 100,000 spectators.

Cowboys Stadium opened up in May of 2009, and had it’s first National Football League game in September of 2009. The New York Giants came to town for the first game, and beat Dallas 33-31 in the final seconds. Dallas won their first home game on September 28th, 2009 against the Carolina Panthers.

One of the many awesome features of the new Stadium is the gigantic high definition television screen. It is the largest in the world. It comes in at 160 x 72 feet, which is over 11,000 square feet. It surpasses Kansas City as the largest in the world.

One of the controversies over the new stadium is the screen. Due to its size, it hangs down and has the ability to possibly be in the way. Punts kicked high in the air can clip the television and create a new element to the game. In 2010, Titans kicker A.J. Trapasso hit the scoreboard in a pre-season game. The screen was ruled in play.

One final element of Dallas Stadium is the surroundings. There is a club/restaurant just outside of the stadium. For those that do not have outrageous priced tickets to the game, can go to the restaurant and enjoy the atmosphere. Most of the time you would think this is free or a minimal charge, right? Not a Jerry’s World. They are charging $200 per person to “hang out” at the Stadium.
