Looks like Candlestick will be rockin' again this weekend, so come knockin'. 

After a nail-biting victory on Saturday, the San Francisco 49ers will host the New York Giants in the 49ers' first NFC Championship Game appearance since 1998. 

Searching for tickets to Sunday's NFC Championship Game?

Join the overpopulated club. 

You're in luck, however, as tickets will be available Wednesday morning and afternoon. Season ticket holders get first dibs at 10 a.m., then sales open to the general public at 1 p.m.

All tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, so have your computers and phones nearby as they are sold online through Ticketmaster or by phone at (800) 745-3000. 

Tickets for last Saturday's 49ers-Saints game sold out in moments (the busy signals still haunt my dreams), and you can expect a similar result for this one. 

“As with the NFC divisional game, tickets will sell out quickly and there is no guarantee of an opportunity to purchase,” a team news release read. 

If you come up empty-handed—and chances are you probably will—there is always the possibility of purchasing resale tickets, though prices are already soaring. 

StubHub, among other resale sites, already has tickets listed up to $10,000. Prices may dip as the game approaches and with a 70-percent chance of rain in San Francisco, but be prepared to spend some dough. 

Whether you end up at Candlestick or stay home to watch, enjoy another game in what has been a magical season.
