Seattle Seahawks ban 49ers fans from buying tickets

Published Add your comment

The Seattle Seahawks have made steps to ensure their renowned home support will not be infiltrated by travelling San Francisco 49ers fans. 

Ahead of the NFC title game between the two sides the Seahawks hierarchy have banned ticket sales for the game from California residents, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The only people who will be able to purchase tickets with their credit card will be those who can list Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho, Alaska, Hawaii, or the Canadian Provinces as their place of residents.

With 49ers fans known to travel in big numbers, and with plenty of them in attendance at the Bank of America Stadium to see their side win against the Carolina Panthers, it looks like the Seahawks are taking no chances.

The Denver Broncos are implementing a similar tactic ahead of their match up with the New England Patriots.

If you do not reside in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Montana, South Dakota or Western Kansas, then the Broncos will not ship AFC title tickets to you.

So the question is 49ers fans, is it worth moving house for the chance to see your team in action?
