Chargers lift blackout for Sunday’s Cowboys game

September 26th, 2013 | by Matt Solinsky | Comments

The San Diego Chargers have sold enough tickets to lift the local television blackout for Sunday’s football game against the Dallas Cowboys at Qualcomm Stadium.

The game kicks off at 1:25 p.m. and will now be televised by Fox Sports. Kenny Albert, Darryl Johnston and Tony Siragusa will boradcast the game.

Blackout could be on the horizon for the Chargers, however.

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 sold for a Monday night game against the Colts on Oct. 14.  A similar number of tickets remain for the Nov. 10 game against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

For the remaining four games, even more unsold tickets remain.

“[T]here is a strong likelihood we’re going to face some blackout this year,” Chargers senior vice president and chief marketing officer Ken Derrett said, via Gehlken.
