Seahawks get stingy with NFC Championship Game tickets

Seattle Seahawks 12th man green wig sad fanThere’s still a game to be played tomorrow so we shouldn’t get too far ahead of ourselves, but with one half of the NFC Championship Game already determined, 49ers fans should at the very least know who they’re rooting against, right?

The Seattle Seahawks took down the New Orleans Saints at CenturyLink Field today — thanks in part to a completely boneheaded maneuver by Marques Colston — but that’s besides the point. As many expected by the midway point of the NFL season, the NFC’s road to the Super Bowl will run through the noise box in the northwest, and the Seahawks are already hard at work bolstering their homefield advantage for next Sunday.

According to the team’s website, the Seahawks will be doing everything they can to keep 49ers or Panthers fans out of the ‘Link.

Here’s what the release says:

The Seattle Seahawks have announced that tickets for the NFC Championship Game to be played on Sunday, January 19 at CenturyLink Field will go on sale Monday, January 13 at 10 a.m. Tickets will be available to fans with a billing address in WA, OR, MT, ID, AK, HI and the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta.

This shouldn’t be too much of a problem for 49ers or Panthers fans who decide they want to go to the game. When I was buying tickets to sporting events habitually, I always used a secondary market (Stub Hub, NFL Ticket Exchange, etc). Waiting on TicketMaster and trying to refresh at just the right time isn’t the easiest route, nor is it much of a bargain. Anyone who wants to go to the game can get tickets to it on StubHub right now.

Still, it adds to the growing grocery list of reasons why Seattle is an obnoxious organization. This may be a first for an NFL team (act like you’ve been there, right?). They wouldn’t have had any trouble filling the seats with Seahawks fans even without this stunt, and boxing out the opposing fan base just seems petty and smug.

adriangarro That’s fair, I just think it’s a little shady to alienate both fan bases that could want to go watch their team. Ya know?

I don’t know if this is the childish 12th man stuff but the fans certainly weren’t when they donated proceeds to charities. It is almost a fine line, one day they donate, then the next day the club demeans the effort by being stingy as an organization.
Anyhow we think of this, I would like to think the Seahawks organization have their reasons.

The Broncos are doing the same thing. So, why are the Seahawks the only ones getting the bad press. Plus, this was released BEFORE the 49s won yesterday.

It is NOT only the Seahawks.. tired of the dang whining!!! The Denver Broncos will limit ticket sales for the AFC Championship game at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium, making it more difficult for New England Patriots fans to buy tickets for the game. The Broncos announced that a limited number of tickets would go on sale Monday at noon Eastern time. Those tickets will be available to residents of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Montana, South Dakota, and Western Kansas with prices ranging from $90 to $300 for reserved seats and $300 to $600 for club… Read more »
