Whether it’s die-hard Browns fans who are thrilled that their team has a winning record for the first time in six years, or Cowboys fans who feel more comfortable coming to AT&T Stadium later. Having seen how COVID-19 protocols were observed for the opening house two weeks ago, tickets for Sunday’s Browns-Cowboys game at AT&T Stadium are selling at a far higher face value, from $ 159 in the corner of the upper deck by hundreds more for the lower tier seats behind the Browns ($ 800 more) and Cowboys benches ($ 900 and more).
This is a higher price than the Cowboys’ regular season home opener against the Falcons on September 17, when the price of the upper deck tickets remained as low as $ 89 for the entire week leading up to the game, including on the morning of kick-off. Falcons-Cowboys attendance was announced at 21,708 as the team limits the amount of tickets sold to around 25% of the stadium’s capacity, following its safe stadium policy during the 2020 season.
For the Browns-Cowboys, the lowest ticket price listed is $ 159 and up to those same 400-level sections in the upper deck. As of Wednesday afternoon, an upper deck ticket in the corner of the end zone was $ 159 (including tax) on SeatGeek, the Cowboys’ main official partner. If you want to sit closer to the 50-yard line on the upper deck, it will cost more ($ 248 starting Wednesday afternoon, including tax). Tickets in level 300 ranged from $ 184 to $ 556 mid-week. Tickets in tier 200 had a wide price range, from as low as $ 238 to as high as $ 900 and more for Founder’s Club seating.
Due to the NFL’s scheduling formula, the Browns – a member of AFC North – come to Arlington only once every eight seasons. The Cowboys play Cleveland once every eight seasons. In 2020, it’s the Browns’ turn to be the visitor, meaning Myles Garrett, the defensive star of the Arlington Martin High School Browns, will play in front of hometown friends and family for the first time as a professional. Local college football fans who cheered for Baker Mayfield during his Heisman Trophy winning career in Oklahoma can see the Sooners lead the Browns against Dak Prescott and the Cowboys.
The infrequent visits of the Browns to North Texas, as well as the team’s record of victories (also infrequent), certainly contribute to the increase in ticket prices. Like the Browns, the Steelers are members of AFC North and come to Arlington once every eight years. The Steelers have an avid fan base across the country and showed up in force for their visit to AT&T Stadium in 2012. Tickets for the upcoming Steelers-Cowboys game at AT&T Stadium on November 8th they are already very popular, starting at as low as $ 272 for the top corner of the end zone to $ 1,879 behind the visitor’s bench.
As for the Browns …
How long ago was the Brown’s last visit in real time from the NFL? Well here’s a journey down memory lane as you read some names that haven’t been on the sports pages much in recent years.
On November 18, 2012, at AT&T Stadium, the Browns’ starting quarterback was Brandon Weeden, who connected with Benjamin Watson for two touchdowns, pushing the Cowboys. Local good guy Phil Dawson (Lake Highlands High School) kicked two field goals for the Browns. The first Dallas Cowboy to score a touchdown that day was running back Felix Jones (remember him?) Who also led the running team (43 yards). Tony Romo was sacked seven times but managed to connect with Dez Bryant for a touchdown. Dan Bailey kicked in three field goals, including one with six seconds remaining to force extra time, followed by the game’s winner for the Cowboys’ 23-20 win.
