On Thursday the Chargers announced that they had been given an extension to sell the remaining 2,100 or so tickets they needed to move to avoid a local television blackout of their home opener against the Titans.
The Chargers made another announcement on Friday and it’s good news for those in the San Diego market looking forward to watching the game on the tube. The tickets have been sold and the blackout has been lifted.
It’s unknown whether the tickets were snapped up by fans or if the team bought the tickets in order to avoid the blackout. If it was the latter, the team would have to pay the 34 cents per dollar on the seats that goes to the visiting team. The Chargers did not choose to take advantage of the new NFL rule allowing teams to lower their blackout threshold by as much as 15 percent.
The Chargers are promoting this weekend’s game as a White Hot Sunday and asking all fans to wear white to the game in honor of the event while the team will be wearing white jerseys and white pants — yes, after Labor Day — for the first time in years.
