On Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers will open yet another chapter in what has become one of the more fierce rivalries in all of sports when they face off with the highest of stakes on the line in the 2014 NFC Championship Game.
As if these two needed yet another reason to hate each other, the loser of this one will go home and the winner will be headed off to New York and Metlife Stadium to play the AFC representative in the Super Bowl.
And, the Seahawks are taking this rivalry seriously.
According to SFGate.com, the team is not allowing residents of the state of California to buy tickets to Sunday’s showdown inside CenturyLink Field.
The team has limited the ticket sales to credit card addresses from six states–including Oregon, Washington, Monatana, Idaho, Alaska and Hawaii–and the Canada provinces.
Like a successful college football program, Niners fans travel well throughout the country, and the trip up to Seattle would have been a fairly easy one for them. A lot easier than the trip to Charlotte this past Sunday for the team’s win over the Panthers, which reportedly a lot of 49ers fans made.
