49ers playoff tickets will go on sale next week, but getting your hands on one could be quite a trick, unless you are a season ticket holder.

Tickets go on sale Tuesday at 10 a.m. and 49ers officials say they expect a very limited number of seats available for non-season ticket holders. Team officials won't know exactly how many will be available until tonight, when a deadline passes for season ticketholders to buy tickets.

49ers fans haven't seen their team in the playoffs since 2002.
