It's open season for 49er tickets.
Starting Monday, any member of the gold-and-red loving public who wants to see a 49ers game at the new $1.2 billion Santa Clara football stadium, can buy advance tickets for the team's new stadium.

The team opened its sales preview center to the general public and said it will schedule construction site tours for interested fans. Existing season ticket holders have been able to buy tickets since January. Since August, city leaders said those fans bought out 52 percent of the 68,500-seat stadium at a $310-million price tag. About 10,000 other fans spent $100 for a spot on a waiting list.
The 49ers won't say exactly how many seats are remaining, but according to the Mercury News, the team said for the first time that it has sold out the entire 300-level section, a small slice of the stadium between the upper and lower decks.
Unlike at Candlestick Park, season ticket holders at the Santa Clara stadium will first need to buy a "license" for every seat, a one-time cost ranging from $2,000 to $80,000. Then each year they must buy season tickets, at $850 to $3,750 per year, or roughly double the current cost at Candlestick.
The new stadium is under construction and set to open in 2014.
