I've been real busy lately but wanted to update all of you on the Bills-Niners ticket situation for the week five game at Candlestick on October 7th.
1) The Niners have sold out their allotment of season tickets and [b][color="#ff0000"]tickets are available only on the "secondary market."[/color][/b]
2) The NorthStar Cafe in North Beach, home to the San Francisco Bills Backers will not be doing a ticket package this time. They plan to have a pregame party and busses down to the game but again, [color="#ff0000"][b]as far as tickets go, you're on your own.[/b][/color]
[/b]3) Niners season ticket holders can re-sell their tickets on NFL Ticket Exchange and this is where I bought my block. Here's the website:
[color="#ff0000"][b]Note that you can click on the section and the page automatically brings up all tickets available in that section[/b][/color]
The Bills/Visitors sideline is clearly marked on the stadium chart and as I recall in 2004 when Bledsoe and Co. demolished the Niners 38-14 (one week prior to losing to the Steelers backups in the final week, thus squashing our playoff hopes), most of us Bills fans got tickets on that sideline. There seemed to be a particular large cluster of us in lower section 25 and 27 and lower box 19.
[color="#ff0000"][b]Here's a really nice site which has photo field views from all sections (I would open two tabs/windows so you can see the views while you're shopping for you seats):[/b][/color]
I just purchased 10 seats together in section (lower reserved) 19 and with taxes and fees the tickets were just under $150 each.
My advice would be to get your tickets now. If anyone with more experience going to games at "The Stick" have any useful suggestions or thoughts, please post them here.
Have a great Sunday, Bills Brothers and Sisters.
