San Diego Chargers receive 24-hour extension to avoid blackout

Kevork Djansezian

The game needs to sell out by tonight, or we'll all be watching on tape delay late Thursday night.

Thursday's game between the San Diego Chargers and Seattle Seahawks is in danger of being blacked out if the Chargers are unable to sell 1,800 remaining general tickets by tonight at 7:00 PM. If the game manages to sell out in time, the game will air on KFMB-TV and be called by Chargers greats Dan Fouts and Billy Ray Smith.

Per Chargers' Director of Public Relations Bill Johnston:

Several hundred Club seats – some of the best seats in the stadium – also are available. The team also is offering a two-game package, featuring tickets to the Seattle game along with tickets to the game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 29.

Tickets may be purchased by logging onto www.CHARGERS.com, calling 1-800-745-3000 or visiting the Chargers Ticket Office located at Gate C at Qualcomm Stadium. The Chargers’ ticket office is open weekdays 8-5 p.m.

Fortunately, the NFL doesn't tend to allow these 24-hour extensions unless they expect the game to sell out, so we should all get to enjoy mediocre, meaningless, exhibition football live on TV on Thursday night. No doubt you'll all be unable to stop watching the ball live, so remember to set your DVR so you can go back and watch just how bad/good the offensive line play looks in its first game action.
