Displaced fan update
By James Walker
The AFC North blog reconnected Wednesday with Pittsburgh native Dan Powell, who was one of 400 displaced fans who bought tickets but didn't have a seat for Super Bowl XLV. He shared his full story with us here.
Powell said he's been in contact with the NFL, and provided a brief update that the league gave him 30 days to decide between one of two options:
- One free ticket to next year's Super Bowl game plus a cash payment of $2,400 (three times the face value of the Super Bowl XLV game ticket held by the individual). The ticket to next year’s Super Bowl game is transferable.
- One free ticket to a future Super Bowl game of the fan's choice, including next year's if so desired, plus round-trip airfare and hotel accommodations provided by the NFL. This offer will be personalized in the ticket-holder's name and is not transferable.
Powell is in the process of making up his mind. Which option would you choose?
