Jilted Super Bowl Fans File Breach of Contract Lawsuit

A lawsuit has been filed against the National Football League and the Dallas Cowboys by fans who were denied seats to Sunday’s Super Bowl despite having paid thousands of dollars for tickets.

The lawsuit was filed after the league admitted mistakes that left about 400 paying fans unable to watch Super Bowl XLV in person, and Cowboys’ season ticket holders watching with obstructed views from temporary metal chairs. The lawsuit, filed late Tuesday in federal court in Dallas, charges the league and team with breach of contract, fraud, and deceptive trade practices. The fans are seeking class-action status and more than $5 million in damages.

The NFL and the Cowboys declined to comment on the lawsuit.

On Tuesday, the league had invited the 400 affected fans to a future Super Bowl of their choice or a cash payment of $2,400, three times the face value of a ticket to Sunday’s game.
