Sunday’s football game between the San Diego Chargers and the New York Giants will be televised locally now that the Bolts have sold enough tickets to avoid a blackout.

The team announced the much-needed uptick in ticket sales Friday for the match-up at Qualcomm Stadium. Kickoff is set for 1:25 p.m. PT.

Last Sunday’s

Chargers vs. Bengals

game at Qualcomm was blacked out due to poor ticket sales, per NFL guidelines. Had that happened again, this would’ve been the team’s second consecutive TV blackout this season.

On Thursday, the NFL gave the Bolts 24-hour extension to sell more tickets. At that time, more than 3,000 tickets still had to be sold in order to lift the blackout and have the game aired in local markets.

Though that goal has now been met, as of Friday afternoon, the team said there are still approximately 2,400 general tickets and plenty of Club seats available for Sunday’s game.

Fans who want to buy tickets can do so on the

Chargers website

or by calling (800) 745-3000.
