The Raiders have sold out all three of their 2011 home games. But even with Carson Palmer joining the team this week, the Raiders need some more time to sell all non-premium tickets for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs.
Per a league source, the Raiders have requested and received a 24-hour extension of the 72-hour deadline for selling enough tickets to lift the local blackout. The number of unsold non-premium tickets is in the range of 2,000 to 3,000.
It’s believed that the Raiders will be giving Palmer the start in his first game with the team, which should help get the rest of those tickets sold by Friday afternoon.
