Seahawks NFC Championship Game tickets will NOT be available for California, North Carolina billing addresses

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks are hoping to restrict opposing fans from getting tickets for the NFC Championship Game. We take a look at what it means.

Fooch's Update: I've put together an update on the situation.

The Seattle Seahawks are putting NFC Championship Game tickets on sale Monday morning, and they're looking to prevent 49ers and Panthers fans from getting too many fans into CenturyLink Field. Per the team, tickets will be available to people with billing addresses in Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Alaska, Hawaii and the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta.

The 49ers still have to win tomorrow, so we don't want to get ahead of ourselves. However, IF the 49ers take care of business tomorrow, and you decide you want to try and go up to Seattle for the game, you have a couple options. The first is of course the secondary ticket market through places like the NFL Ticket Exchange, and Stub Hub. Second, you can find someone with a credit card that has one of those states for their billing address.

This is not surprising, but it's still amusing, and a chance to poke fun at the Seahawks just a little bit more. I don't blame them for doing this. It's their house and they want to protect their 12th Man reputation. At the same time, I think even if anybody could buy tickets they'd be fine. I'm sure they're not concerned about the appearance, but it still looks kind of weak. Such is life.
