If you’re a San Francisco 49ers fan, you’re going to love this one! If you’re a Seattle Seahawks fan, you’re also going to love this one. According to CBS Sports, the Seattle Seahawks have restricted the sale of tickets of the NFC Championship game to just six states – Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Alaska and Hawaii.
Not only is the rivalry hot enough, but they restricted the sale of tickets to California among 44 other states. It seems as if they only allowed Western States to purchase tickets to their game. The one exception is of course Seattle.
Don’t get me wrong, Niner and Seahawks fans both do whatever it takes, and are undoubtedly passionate enough to fly over to the others’ arena, risk a firm beating, and root for their team. Some fans do whatever it takes, and being there for their team, despite the cost and potential health, is very important. The Niners’ fans no longer have this option to fly to Seattle and cheer their team on.
If the Niner fans really wanted to go, they could go to the secondary market and pay a minimum of 330$ dollars, plus airfare. I only imagine this is to keep the opposing fans out of Seahawks territory, but it seems a bit extreme. Still, we’re going to be set for a great game, as a few supporters may not even make a difference.
