NASHVILLE - The 2011 Super Bowl will be played at the Dallas Cowboys' new stadium in Arlington, Texas, where more than 100,000 fans will be able to watch the NFL's showpiece game.
NFL owners voted yesterday for the North Texas group, which had Hall of Famer Roger Staubach lobbying on its behalf. The Cowboys' $1 billion stadium will open in 2009 and 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.
