Chargers announce sellout for November 6 game

Thursday is usually the day of the week when we find out whether games have been blacked out, or not, for the coming Sunday.

This Thursday, the Chargers have declared that a game that won’t be played until three Sundays from now has been sold out.

To little surprise, the Chargers have managed to sell enough non-premium tickets to lift the blackout for the once-in-eight-years visit from the defending NFL champions, the Green Bay Packers.  Four days later, the Chargers will host the Raiders in a Thursday night game that has not yet been sold out.

The Packers have never lost in San Diego when playing the Chargers, winning there in 1970, 1978, 1993, 1999, and 2003.  Green Bay’s only defeat at Qualcomm Stadium came in January 1998, when the Packers lost to the Broncos there in Super Bowl XXXII.

    Oh you Viking fan. I bet you just looooooved typing that part, didn’t you?

  2. this sucks. i live in NJ and was coming into San Diego for business and HOPING to score dirt cheap tickets….

    just my luck, the one stinking time they decide to sell out…

  3. I’m sure tons of Packer fans have planned vacations to SD. Luckily the Bolts made it so they had to buy multiple tickets. I’m guessing it will be the closest to %50 the other team since 2002 Raiders game. I’m going to guess %45 Packer fans there.

    Don’t tell me other games were even close to %50. I’ve been going to games with my season tickets for years, including the Raiders game. TV cameras point right at the crap seats behind the opponents bench where other fans congregate to get near their team not knowing the players are fully in your way.

  4. yeah man,,

    say what you want about eagles fans, but we support our teams..
    our stadium has sold out each game since back before 2002. . you other cities are pathetic.

    everyone rips on the eagles fans, but we represent.. i think it would be a headline if our stadium was EVER not sold out.
    even without a superbowl, we bleed green. .
    thats called heart.
    you other fans just dont understand.

  5. No worries on that following Raiders game… Raiders fans always come through and fill that stadium with Silver & Black. It’s like their home away from home… 🙂

  6. El Indio and Old Town margaritas here I come!

    @jmphinsfan, no way were there going to be cheap tickets! Cheeseheads/San Diego/November…and half of us already live in CA. I bought my tickets in June.

    Go Pack Go!

  7. I agree that Packer fans will represent very well at this game – we always do.

    But asking prices for tickets on the secondary market are ridiculous! If you look at any of the websites that offer them and compare the tickets for the Packer game vs. any other remaining game on San Diego’s schedule and the prices are at least $200 more per seat. I don’t know what the regular price is, but people with nosebleed seats for this game are asking $200+. I saw a guy offering his season-ticket seats for face value for every game EXCEPT the Packer game.

    They know we’re coming…

  8. It is getting cold in Wisconsin these days. A trip to San Diego would sound inviting to almost anyone back there. The crowd will be 40% Packer fans.

    That is great but what where you doing before 2002? Packers haven’t had a game not sell out since well as far as just about anyone can remember. Everyone one of the current season ticket holders could drop dead and there still would be a waiting list.

  10. Thursday:
    Chargers announce they have sold out game for November 6th, 2011.

    Packers announce they have sold out game for November 6th, 2061.

  11. I am sure the majority of tickets were scooped up by brokers, and add in the bandwagoners along with the travelling fans looking to escape the arctic, and those guys will make a profit.

    No surprise the Raiders Nation doesn’t travel well, even the old La fans…visiting stadiums don’t have enough cheap brand beer or motorcycle parking for their needs. Of course, that applies to Raiders fans not currently restricted by the state to stay within their county.

  12. well you can buy a single game to the packers, but you can’t to the raiders…….don’t worry will still be a home game for us. Chargers are going down!

    Yeah, those Chargers fans are blah blah blah blah

    ***********

    Cheers bro. I grew up in Escondido.

    GO BOLTS!

  14. As a Chargers fan, I want to apologize in advances to the 45,000 Packers fans who will be in attendance for this game.

    1) For making you endure the hell hole that is Jack Murphy stadium for 4 hours (I will NOT call it Qualcomm)

    and

    2) For making you watch Shaun Phillips tear Aaron Rodgers’ ACL and ending his career.

    But you’re welcome to enjoy our beach and stare at our beautiful women for a couple days before heading back to the tundra.

  15. these aren’t fans from GB;they’re locals. went to the carolina game- about 40% pack fans; the panther fans thought we had all come from wisconsin. LOL! – it’s the packer nation baby! can’t get into a GB home game, so we travel and fill the stadiums where they can’t sell out.

  16. Packers season tickets have been sold out since 1960. There are 80,000+ on the waiting list. True facts.

  17. “watch Shaun Phillips tear Aaron Rodgers’ ACL and ending his career.”

    Hope springs eternal. Get well soon.

  18. …and you’ll have to get in line. Every opponent has fans deliriously hoping that their team will end Rodgers’ career.

    Real high road stuff.

    That may be true, but Santa Claus can’t go there anymore.

  20. A lot of Packer fans will be there to see win #8 on their quest for 19-0. Combine the Pack with the Badgers & Wisconsin’s gonna see a record of 33-0 this season with a BCS National Title & another Lombardi.
