Chargers get another shot at avoiding blackout

The Thanksgiving holiday week along with the Chargers’ strong sales efforts have prompted the National Football League to grant the Chargers an additional 24-hour extension in an effort to lift the local television blackout of this Sunday’s Chargers-Chiefs game. The team now has until 1:05 pm PT on Saturday to sell the remaining 1,350 tickets.

Of the two most recent games to be granted 48-hour extensions – 2008 NFC Wild Card game, Philadelphia at Minnesota, and 2001 AFC Wild Card game, Baltimore at Miami, one sold out (at Minnesota) and one did not (at Miami).

The Chargers have sold enough tickets to lift the blackout of 44 consecutive regular season or postseason home games, tied for the longest such streak in team history with a streak set in 1979-84. The last regular-season home game blacked out in the local market was on Nov. 7, 2004 versus the New Orleans Saints.

Tickets are available now at the Chargers’ ticket office at Gate C at Qualcomm Stadium, at www.Chargers.com and through TicketMaster at 800-745-3000. The ticket office will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Those coming to the game can bring joy to local youngsters this holiday season by giving a new, unwrapped toy to the Chargers Wives 20th Annual “Toys for Tots” Toy Drive presented by Cymer.

As fans enter the stadium, toys and cash donations will be collected by the San Diego Chargers players’ and coaches’ wives, along with servicemen and women from the United States Marine Corps. The toys will be distributed to deserving children throughout San Diego in time for the holidays through various charitable organizations.

For more information about the Toy Drive or for additional locations where toys are being collected, log on to the official Web site of the “Toys for Tots” Toy Drive, www.toydrive.com.
