Dallas Cowboys Party Pass
The Dallas Cowboys Party Pass is a standing room only ticket that grants entry into the area near Cowboys Stadium, but does not grant access to any physical seat inside the stadium. The Cowboys Stadium seating chart only displays the seated locations throughout the venue and Party Pass holders who are lucky enough to gain entry into the stadium must stand in aisles and walkways to obtain any view of the field.
Dallas Cowboys Party Pass tickets were first sold upon completion of the new Cowboys Stadium just prior to the commencement of the 2009 NFL season. Party Passes guarantee access to the “plazas just outside the party decks of Cowboys Stadium”, but do not ensure access inside the stadium itself. When games are fully attended by all owners of physical seats, Party Pass holders are largely prevented from entering the main area of the facility. Cowboys Party Pass patrons do receive a partially-obstructed view of the jumbotron and access to concessions outside the party decks, but few football fans will consider the experience worth the inconvenience. Since Party Pass ticket purchasers must still pay high prices for parking and concessions, there is little value in ever purchasing a Cowboys Party Pass.
Consult the Dallas Cowboys seating chart and detailed information about other Cowboys Stadium seating areas: Cowboys Club Hall of Fame, Cowboys Founders Club, Cowboys Suites, Cowboys Club Main, Cowboys Club Mezzanine, Cowboys Hall of Fame, Cowboys Main, Cowboys Mezzanine, Cowboys Loge, Cowboys Upper Reserved, and Cowboys Party Pass.
Cowboys Party Pass tickets are sold for under $30 when purchased directly from the team. Secondary market ticket brokers are often allowed to buy large quantities of Party Passes in bulk at discounted prices, so prices for less popular games can be cheaper from larger ticket scalpers. Be aware that there is essentially no limit to the number of Cowboys Party Pass tickets sold for most games. While there is a theoretical limit of 30,000 total Party Passes, only one game has ever reached that sales volume. As such, you should never pay more than face value for a Party Pass. Given the terrible fan experience associated with a Party Pass, strongly consider the cheapest available tickets in the Upper Reserved section rather than subjecting yourself to the constant jostling, large crowds, and obstructed views in the Party Pass areas.
