Good news, Chargers fans. The next game, featuring a visit from America’s Team, will be televised in San Diego.
Bad news, Chargers fans? The team is concerned that blackouts could be looming.
According to Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego, plenty of tickets remain for the six remaining home games. More than 12,000 non-premium tickets haven’t been moved for a Monday night game against the Colts. Ditto for Peyton Manning’s return to Qualcomm Stadium.
For the rest of the games, even more unsold tickets remain.
“[T]here is a strong likelihood we’re going to face some blackouts this year,” Chargers senior vice president and chief marketing officer Ken Derrett said, via Gehlken.
Unlike plenty of teams with ticket-sales issues, the Chargers have not opted to reduce their threshold of non-premium tickets below 100 percent.
