Tickets for Seattle’s divisional playoff game on Jan. 11 against a still-to-be-determined opponent went quickly Tuesday.
Tickets went on sale online at 10 a.m., and the team announced via Twitter 26 minutes later the game was sold out. Fans reported via social media and other outlets, though, that tickets appeared to be gone within minutes.
As the team had noted beforehand, there wasn’t a large selection to be had.
The team sold 62,000 season tickets this year, and virtually all season-ticket holders were expected buy their allotted playoff tickets.
In a stadium that seats roughly 68,000, that didn’t leave many for single-game ticket sales.
Tickets remain available on the secondary market, though they will cost a premium.
StubHub.com on Tuesday afternoon had more than 7,400 tickets for sale, beginning at $244.95.
The Seahawks sold out the regular season, as well, and set a record for season attendance at CenturyLink Field of 545,577, bettering the 545,551 of 2007.
While many Seahawks fans were left wanting for a ticket, there were plenty to be had in other cities. Reports from Green Bay stated that roughly 11,000 tickets were still available for the Packers’ game Sunday against San Francisco. The story was similar in Cincinnati, where roughly 10,000 tickets were reported to still be available for the Bengals’ game against San Diego. And in Indianapolis, it was reported that roughly 6,000 tickets were available for the Colts’ game against the Chiefs.
