NFC Championship Game ticket prices most expensive of this NFL season

Streeter Lecka

If it wasn't already clear, 49ers vs. Seahawks is the most anticipated game in the NFL this year, as evidenced by ticket prices.

As soon as the table was set for the San Francisco 49ers to travel up to Seattle to face the Seahawks in the Conference Championship game, the national media began talking about how this was the NFC match-up the world deserved. The rivalry factor creates an added energy to things, as well, with both fan-bases more excited about beating their "cousin", if you will, than anyone else they could have potentially faced.

Then there's the fact that the winner is going to the Super Bowl, which I guess is sort of a big deal, too.

It's no surprise then that ticket demand has reflected just how popular this game is, and how many people want to see it first-hand, live, at Century Link Field. These two teams are pretty evenly-matched, hate each other, and we all want to see the prize-fight.

The recipe is perfect for what is turning out to be the most expensive tickets of the NFL season. At the time of writing this article, secondary market tickets were averaging $782 each, with the cheapest available just under $400. That's 124% more expensive than the average regular season ticket to a Seahawks game. More than double!

This is currently the second-most expensive NFC Championship game over the last four years. Even the same game last year, in which the 49ers also played, had an average ticket price around $300.

If there is any good news for those not looking to add a second mortgage in order to see this game, it's that prices are steadily going down as the game approaches. Consider that the average when tickets first hit the secondary market were nearly $900.

For those looking to potentially attend the game, there are a variety of ticket re-sellers to choose from. Below are some examples (hyperlinked) so you can do your homework. (~$474 get-in price)
