The Dallas Cowboys announced today that they would not honor season tickets for the 2020 NFL season, but would give all season ticket holders the first opportunity to request single game seats on a limited basis.

Unlike the New York Jets, New York Giants, and Philadelphia Eagles, who have already announced that they will play their 2020 home games without fans, the Cowboys acknowledged that seating at AT&T Stadium will be limited. However, Cowboys season ticket holders will have an opportunity to purchase a limited number of tickets for a limited number of home games this season. The team also made clear that fans might not receive the same seat locations as their season tickets. Another option would be for them to decline the opportunity to purchase individual game tickets through the team, but they would still retain all of their benefits for 2021 and future seasons. Additional options include applying the ticket credit for future purchases or requesting a refund.

One other interesting benefit the team included in their release today is that they will be adding an additional year to the term of the seat option agreement. However, no payment will be required for that additional year. What this means is that fans will get the added year of seat location, benefits, and season ticket holder perks but at no cost to them. Consider it an early Cowboys Christmas gift from Jerry Jones.
