San Francisco 49ers vs. New York Giants Tickets: NFC Championship
Even though the San Francisco 49ers were the #2 seed in the NFC Playoffs, it comes as a fairly big shock that Candlestick Park will be the site of this Sunday’s NFC Championship Game. In order for that to happen, not only did the Niners have to beat the red-hot New Orleans Saints — which they did, dramatically as possible – but they also needed America’s Super Team, the Green Bay Packers, to lose. Something they’d done just once since last Christmas. Lo and behold, the unthinkable happened, and Aaron Rodgers and his unstoppable offensive machine came out flat, and out-of-synch. The Giants, on the other hand, were relentless on defense and well-oiled on offense, and the result was New York fourth straight victory in a “must-win” game. And now, the Niners and Giants will meet up in San Francisco this weekend, with a trip to Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis on the line.
Find 49ers vs. Giants NFC Championship Game Tickets
The Niners and Giants last met in the NFC Playoffs during an epic 2002 battle in the Wild Card round. The 49ers trailed by 24 points late in the 3rd quarter, but Jeff Garcia led a furious comeback to give San Francisco a one point lead with a minute left to play. What happened next is still a painful subject for Giants fans to discuss, so we’ll refrain from doing so in detail. But it’s safe to assume that Trey Junkin will not have an impact on the outcome of this game. For the 49ers, this is their first trip to the NFC Championship Game since the 1997-98 season, which they lost to the Green Bay Packers. The Giants were here as recently as the 2007 season, when they beat the Packers to advance to the Super Bowl, where they then unseated the undefeated New England Patriots as the best team in the land.
The game is set for a 3:30 kickoff on the West Coast (so 6:30 ET), and will be broadcast on Fox, with the “A Team” of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman handling broadcast duties. If you’d rather be at Candlestick Park on Sunday, there are still plenty of tickets to be had on the secondary ticket market.
Where you want to sit will obviously dictate the price you will pay for Giants vs. Niners Tickets, but just to get in the gates it’s probably going to cost at $250, maybe more. The secondary ticket market prices are dictated by market demand, and there are few teams who posses a fan base as large as the Giants (the 49ers aren’t too far behind), meaning demand will undoubtedly skyrocket as NFC Championship Game Tickets start flying out of virtual box offices. If you’re planning on going, we recommend just ponying-up for tickets now, rather than play the waiting game and risk getting burnt. But if you’re determined to find the best deal, the night before a big game can sometimes yield friendly prices, with many Online Ticket Brokers offering same-day email delivery.
