With the Seattle Seahawks limiting public release of National Football Conference championship game tickets to buyers in the Pacific Northwest, Bay Area 49er fans are being forced to buy their tickets secondhand – at a significant markup.
They haven’t even made it there yet, but the San Francisco Giants are already putting some World Series seats up for grabs – albeit online, and only a very limited supply of tickets to the theoretical championship game were initially being made available.
San Francisco 49ers NFC Championship tickets went on sale at 10 a.m. Wednesday for season ticket holders, and 1 p.m. for the general public. They didn’t last long.
Saturday’s San Francisco 49ers vs. New Orleans Saints playoff showdown at Candlestick Park is “by far the highest selling game of the weekend,” according to the online ticket selling marketplace StubHub.
Want to take someone out to the ballgame? You might want to think about a second mortgage. World Series tickets are shattering all records and selling at unheard-of prices.
