    For the first time Wednesday, the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Bid Committee made its bid document available for public review.

    This 3-inch binder of previously confidential material was provided to the 32 owners in the NFL. Those owners on Tuesday awarded the 2011 Super Bowl to North Texas, over competing bids from Arizona and Indianapolis.

    The bid document makes it clear that the NFL tightly controls virtually all aspects of how the game and attendant events are orchestrated down to specifying such minute details as the number of weights in different dimensions that must be provided at the practice facilities used by the two participating teams.

    Here's a "by-the-numbers" look at some of what the bid committee agreed to provide or make available:

    10,000 trained volunteers to assist with the multitude of events surrounding the game.

    37,640 parking spaces for the use of the NFL, including 24,200 within a mile of the game site, the Dallas Cowboys' new stadium in Arlington.

    750 buses.

    500 limousines.

    1,000 taxis.

    10,000 rental cars.

    150 luxury suites in the stadium for the exclusive use of the NFL. This will be by far the most luxury suites ever set aside for league officials and guests at a Super Bowl.

    Four luxury suites on the 50-yard line: one for Fox, the network televising the game, one for the owner of each participating team, and one for the NFL commissioner.

    One luxury suite in the stadium reserved for the NFL for the year leading up to the Feb. 6, 2011, game.

    90,000 hotel rooms, including 23,887 reserved for the NFL.

    187 hotel suites and 1,416 luxury rooms for NFL owners and other VIPs at the Hotel Crescent Court, the Mansion on Turtle Creek, the Ritz-Carlton, the W Dallas-Victory, the Adolphus, the Four Seasons Resort and Club in Las Colinas, and other top-of-the-line hotels.

    Four "high-end hotels," each with at least 900 rooms, that could serve as the NFL headquarters hotel. The candidates: The Adam's Mark, the Hilton Anatole, the Hyatt Regency Dallas and the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine.

    300 percent more staff at the stadium on game day than what is normally needed for a game.

    730 concession, souvenir, merchandise and program stands.

    2.3 million square feet of space at the stadium "to accommodate all of the NFL's needs for Super Bowl XLV at no cost to the NFL."

    $1 million to be paid to the NFL to cover game-day costs.

    74 potential event venues throughout the region that can each accommodate at least 1,000 people. These will be in Dallas, Fort Worth, Irving, Arlington, Grand Prairie, Plano, Frisco and other area cities.
