"We’ve had a tremendous response from our season ticket holders as well as fans interested in becoming new season ticket holders," said Jim Steeg, the Chargers’ executive vice president and chief operating officer. "Nearly all of our current season ticket holders bought their seats for the game. And we’ve also sold a lot of new season seats for 2010. Finally, we gave our season ticket holders the opportunity to purchase additional playoff tickets and they scooped up the remaining seats in less than 48 hours.
"This is a great indicator of the excitement surrounding the team and the upcoming playoffs."
The team has held back a very limited number of playoff tickets that are available only to fans purchasing season tickets. And there is a very limited number of suite and other premium-seating opportunities available. Season tickets for the 2010 season may be purchased at the Chargers’ ticket office at Gate C at Qualcomm Stadium, calling 877-CHARGERS or going to www.CHARGERS.com.
The Chargers will play New England, Cincinnati or the New York Jets on Sunday, Jan. 17 at 1:40 pm PT.
