In what is emerging as the NFL most heated and best rivalry, the Seattle Seahawks will play host to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday for a trip to the Super Bowl.
But fans from California won't be able to purchase tickets for the game at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, which is the loudest NFL stadium and arguably its most hostile.

Lawsuit? Restraint of trade?
way to stay classy Seattle
This news may be more interesting than the game. I find it rather humorous. Seattle vs California. :^)
This would make a win by SF sweet!
Typical leftist attitude toward free markets. Seattle metro is one screwed up area.
Sorry, but both are losers in my book. I’m a Cowboys fan (let the flaming begin). :^)
...and the irony is that Seattle is excluding fans from another leftist metro area. It’s overt racism — the libs don’t want SF-Oakland Negro and Mexican thugs causing trouble in stands packed with screaming white people.
While it may be loud, I suspect Seattle crowds are a lot more friendly to the visiting team than Philly fans are with a losing Eagles team.
You mean Philly inmates. My apologies to all you civil Philly fans. This excludes you.
Well that’s just un-sportsman like behavior. Flag and a 15 yard penalty on the Sealarks.
They are doing the same thing in Denver against the Pats fans!
What does this have to do with a leftist view of free markets? This IS a free market activity - a private business (the Seahawks) are choosing who they would, and would not, like to do business with.
Exactly. Niners fans in CA are banned from the game as they can purchase tickets through 3rd party vendors.
I like the move. It’ll be nice to have fewer annoying SF fans at the game. The Seahawks barely had any tickets to sell anyway, so why not give priority to their fan base? Other teams should do it too, unless they’re worried their own fans won’t buy the tickets.
Didn’t know Denver was doing the same as Seattle re limiting ticket sales. I live in Seattle and it doesn’t seem like good sportmenship to ban ticket sales by zip code. Agree they can do what they want. Go Hawks!!
Well I’m not inviting any Democrats over to watch the game, so I guess the Seaslugs can do whatever they want.
I mean this is America, ain’t it?
Correction to #14, “Niners fans are NOT banned from the game”
The story would be just as accurate to say ‘Seattle bans Obama from buying tickets for the game.’ As Obama’s ‘home’ address is outside the geographic region Seattle's Seahawks allow the limited (6,000 out of the 86,000 seat stadium) sale of tickets by the home team.
I wholeheartedly agree. Their stadium, their rules.
