(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Both the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos are trying to increase the home-field advantage for their NFL Conference Championships Sunday.     

By doing so the teams are limiting ticket sales to residents with certain billing addresses.

Both teams have a list of acceptable regions listed on their web sites.

Fans can still get tickets through resellers, but most likely at inflated prices.

The Broncos host the New England Patriots. The Seahawks host the San Francisco 49ers.

The winners of each game go to the Super Bowl.
