The Superbowl Cowboys Stadium cost 1.2 billion to build. That's 1200 Million. Wow. He's so lucky he won the right to host the Super Bowl. I bet you they will host every 5 years or so (like Tampa, Arizona, Miami).

Well it has 2 of the worlds biggest arches every built, which support the whole stadium, its top of the line building technology.
The old stadium never had a superbowl in it. Jerry Jones whole point into building the new one was to have superbowls and other events happening there. The prices of this years superbowl will probably pay for almost half the cost to build the stadium. And for what he made for all 8 games at the stadium this year plus endorcements, he's probably already making a profit on it.

I bet he doesn't get to keep most of the seat money. He probably makes most of his money from food/alcohol etc that will be sold there. He probably gets a good portion though. It will really help the economy of Dallas (hotels/shops etc).

For 1200 million it better have one of the biggest of something. He did host a fight there. I just wish they could have built it for 1199 Million and give me 1 million.

For comparison, Heinz field was only 281 million. The naming rights were sold for 57 million to Heinz. (for 20 years...10 have gone already).
