If you still want tickets, you'll have to pay dearly for them.

If your web browser decided to be slow this morning, you may have missed out on your chance for tickets to the 49ers playoff game on Saturday.

Tickets were sold online beginning at 10 a.m. and were sold out in less than three minutes for the team's divisional round matchup with the Green Bay Packers, 49ers director of public relations Bob Lange said.

Fans hoping to still get tickets are encouraged to go to NFL TicketExchange for additional tickets, which is a website supported by the NFL and the 49ers.

The face value of the tickets for this round range from $114 to $429 but range from $200 to $10,000 on TicketExchange.

Stub Hub, another source for exchanging tickets, has them ranging from $195 to more than $5,000. There is even one request asking for $99,360 for a lower reserve ticket. However, there are still some other ticket packages available.

The 49ers have less than 100 tickets for the Ticket and Tailgate Packages, which includes the game ticket as well as entrance to a pregame tailgate party. These tickets can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com.

The Packers, who won the NFC North division, won their NFC Wild Card game against the Minnesota Vikings 24-10 last Saturday.

The 49ers (11-4-1) won the NFC West for the second straight season and are the No. 2 seed in the NFC for the second straight season.

The 49ers were knocked out of the playoffs last season by the New York Giants in the NFC Championship game.

Game time is Saturday at 5 p.m. at Candlestick Park.
