PHILADELPHIA - The Eagles are soaring into the NFC Championship with Philadelphia by their side as they bring the game back home to the "City of Brotherly Love."
The Philadelphia Eagles announced that tickets for the NFC Championship game on January 29 will go on sale Tuesday after defeating the New York Giants Saturday night 38-7 in an NFC divisional playoff game.
Ticket sales will begin at 10 a.m. January 24, and can only be purchased on Ticketmaster.com.
There is a four-ticket limit per household, and they will be available on a first come, first served basis.
FOX 29's Chris O'Connell checked the secondary market hours before single-game tickets went on sale and found some truly staggering price tags. Ticket IQ said the cheapest ticket for Sunday's game is nearly $850, that's roughly $100 more than the AFC Championship game.
"Fans are feeling like this is another potential trip to the Super Bowl, and paying more than any other NFC Championship game that we’ve tracked over a 10-year period," CEO and Founder of TicketIQ Jesse Lawrence said.
"We kind of saw that same demand with the Phillies run against the Astros in the World Series, so it’s kind of what we expected," Adam Budelli from StubHub said.

Tickets for the Eagles divisional playoff game against the Giants skyrocketed into the thousands - some as high as $9,000 - after they reportedly sold out in minutes.
