Super Bowl 2010 - How Tickets are Sold, Can You Win Them?

The NFL awarded the 2010 Super Bowl — Super Bowl XLIV — to Miami. It is the 10th time the city, who last hosted in 2007, will play host to the championship event. Some think that it is Florida's weather that is the real winner, and I certainly can't argue with that. The fact that Tampa just hosted the 2009 Super Bowl, pretty much confirms Florida as a "super" location in my mind.

The championship game will be played February 7, 2010 at Dolphin Stadium. The stadium has a seating capacity of 75,540. Looking to obtain tickets? Good luck. The majority of Super Bowl tickets are distributed to the NFL teams, with each team receiving 17.5 percent of the tickets. The non-participating teams receive 1.2 percent; and, the host team — Miami Dolphins — will receive five percent. The remaining tickets are controlled by the NFL. It distributes those primarily to NFL affiliated companies, the broadcast network, corporate sponsors, media, charities, fans and the host committee. Only about one percent of the tickets go to fans.

But you can still watch the game on Direct TV. There's plenty of time to get Direct T V in your home. If you think DirectTV sounds like the right choice for your football party, make sure you check out for all of your Super Bowl watching needs.
