If you planned on taking a road trip to Denver to cheer on the New England Patriots during the AFC Championship game, forget about it. 

Tickets for Sunday’s game at Sports Authority Field in Denver go on sale Monday at 10 a.m. Mountain Time, but if you don’t have an address out west, then you can’t buy them.

The Denver Broncos website says that tickets will only be available to those with a valid billing address in the Rocky Mountain region, as was reported by CBS Denver. Those states include Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Montana, South Dakota and Western Kansas.

Tickets, which will be available by phone and on Ticketmaster, will sell for between $90 and $600. There is a limit of four per household.

The Patriots beat the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday to advance to the AFC Championship game. The Broncos beat the San Diego Chargers on Sunday to advance. The winner of Sunday’s game will go to the Super Bowl.

The Seattle Seahawks, who will play the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in the NFC Championship game, are also not selling tickets to San Francisco fans, according to CBS San Francisco.

Of course, tickets can always be bought on the secondary market, but those will likely sell for more than face value.
