Jerry Jones guarantees Cowboys crowd on Sunday vs. 49ers


DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Just as Cowboys fans tend to do, fans of the San Francisco 49ers tend to show up in droves to the team's road games.

One of the major talking points heading into Sunday's playoff matchup between the 49ers and Cowboys at AT&T Stadium has been about the crowd, and whether or not Dallas will have a home-field advantage.

However, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones isn't concerned about the 49ers fan base getting their hands on tickets and expects the majority of the fans in the building to be backing his team.

“Every game, we have the highest attendance in the NFL. Considerably so," Jones said Friday on the K&C Masterpiece on 105.3 The Fan. "I look out across there and every game will have some visiting team support. But, the attendance, the ability to have that kind of attendance (at AT&T Stadium) creates more visiting team fans. (The) percentage is what you want to look at, and I’ll guarantee you this will be a Cowboys crowd, without question. … This is a home game and we’ll get the benefit of the home crowd. We just need to get our fans in play early and we need their help."

The Cowboys are asking fans to wear white for the game Sunday, but that will only allow anyone wearing red in the building to stand out even more. For Dallas, they can only hope that a repeat of the fan disparity on display when these two teams played at AT&T Stadium back in 2014 is not in the cards.

In an interview with 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday, Jones said he hoped that the attendance for the game would surpass 100,000. The Cowboys drew 94,327 fans for their 2018 Wild Card win over the Seahawks, and averaged about 93,000 fans this season.

But, they haven't hosted 100,000 fans at a game since AT&T Stadium opened its doors back in 2009 when 105,131 fans watched the Cowboys take on the Giants.

The cheapest tickets for the game are standing room only going for $121 each on Seat Geek. The cheapest price for a pair of seats is currently $254 each.
