    Fans will have the same amount of money to tailgate before next season's 49ers' games.

    The San Francisco 49ers are not letting all that success get to their heads.

    Team President and CEO Jed York took to Twitter to announce Thursday that the team will not increase season ticket prices next season.

    "Thanks #49ersFaithful for being the best fans in the NFL," York tweeted Thursday night. "Let me be the first to tell you we are keeping season ticket prices FLAT for 2012."

    While the San Francisco 49ers have long had a consecutive sell out streak, the team's early home games this season were often filled with empty seats.

    During the second game of the season, chants for the visiting Dallas Cowboys at times drowned out the cheers of the hometown fans.

    This past off season the 49ers increased the prices of some season tickets by as much as 52 percent.

    The 49ers are enjoying their best season in nine years and they have a chance to wrap up the NFC West title this Sunday at home against the St. Louis Rams.

    The game is a sell out.
