NFL adds refunds to options available to displaced fans at Super Bowl XLV

In its efforts to appease the Super Bowl 400, the National Football League has offered a third option for those fans who were unable to watch Super Bowl XLV from an actual seat in Cowboys Stadium -- a full refund of expenses incurred.

The league released a statement Tuesday saying it continues to reach out to disaffected fans and listen to suggestions for compensating them for what the NFL acknowledges was a regrettable and inexcusable situation.

The newest option is:

"For those who want reimbursement for expenses, the NFL will reimburse the greater of $5,000 or your actual documented expenses (in certain defined categories) to any verified ticket holder in the specified sections.

The NFL's other options:

I. $2,400 plus one (1) game ticket to the next Super Bowl played.

II. One (1) game ticket to any future Super Bowl of your choice, together with round-trip economy class airfare and four (4) nights hotel accommodation provided by the NFL.

The league went on to say that if one of the 400 displaced fans choose Options I & II, their ticket and location will need to be verified to be entitled to choose Option III

Complete details of the full refund option will be available in the information packages the NFL will send upon receipt of a ticket holder's submission to the special website
