For those San Francisco 49er fans who were not able to get their hands on tickets for the Division Round playoff game, you have one last chance on Monday. The 49ers will release a very limited amount of tickets at 10 a.m. on Monday for the playoff game at Candlestick Park on January 12. The tickets will be sold through Ticketmaster, with prices ranging from $114-$429 (before fees).
Good luck to the 49ers fans who attempt to get their hands on playoffs tickets on Monday and pay face value for them. During last season’s playoffs I attempted to purchase tickets for both games right at the time they were released. It didn’t matter how many times I refreshed the website, with so many people also trying to buy tickets luck was not on my side. However, that does not mean I won’t try on Monday!
Most of the playoff tickets are claimed first by season ticket holders who either attend the game or resale them online, sometimes at double the value they paid. Right now tickets are available at NFL Ticket Exchange for $189 and up. On StubHub prices are about the same with tickets starting at $198 and up.
After this weekend’s playoff games we will know who will be traveling to San Francisco to face the 49ers in the second round. Ticket prices will go up next week regardless of who the 49ers play. However, if it’s the Seahawks or Packers coming into town, the prices will certainly double because of the proximity of both teams and their die-hard fan base who will travel anywhere for a playoff game. So try getting your hands on those 49ers playoff tickets on Monday and hopefully I will see you at the game! Assuming I am able to get tickets too.
