NFC 49ers-Rams championship game on track for best-selling NFL playoff game
Sunday’s NFC Championship Game between the 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams won’t just be the division rivals’ third meeting this season, it will also seemingly make ticket sales history.
The 49ers-Rams NFC Title Game has the potential to be “the best-selling non-Super Bowl NFL playoff game in StubHub history,” ticketing rep Adam Budelli told ABC 7 News.
Ticket sales for Sunday’s game have been trending since before the Rams even solidified their place in the contest. 49ers fans were furious that sales of the game at SoFi Stadium were restricted to Los Angeles residents on the TicketMaster website.
Although it was clarified that this was only for primary ticket sales if Rams season ticket holders hadn’t bought them all, fans still rallied and spoke out to try to bring as many 49ers Faithful in Los Angeles for the big game.

The Rams are probably trying to avoid what happened in Week 18, when 49ers fans invaded SoFi and had a clear advantage over the Los Angeles fans in attendance. Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford even had to go to a silent count at one point in the game, which is unheard of for a home team.
We’ve seen wives of Rams players pleading with fans to avoid selling tickets to 49ers fans for the game, although Joe Staley and Frank Gore have other ideas.
There won’t be an empty seat in the house for Sunday’s NFC Championship Game, and it’s hard to imagine there won’t be another large number of 49ers fans heading to SoFi Stadium. .
