The dark cloud in the form of a possible blackout over Sunday’s Chargers vs. Chiefs game has lifted and the match-up will be televised after all, Chargers team officials announced Thursday.

According to team officials, enough tickets have been purchased to lift the local TV blackout, per NFL standards. The Bolts are set to take on the Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium, with kickoff slated for 1:25 p.m.

As of 1:45 p.m. Thursday, team officials said there were a very limited number of general seats left for the game, as well as some premium tickets in Outstanding Club seat locations. To search for tickets, visit the Chargers website or call Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000. Tickets may also be purchased at the Chargers ticket office at Gate C at Qualcomm Stadium.

Last week, the Bolts avoided a blackout when they played the Oakland Raiders in San Diego. The same thing happened for the Dec. 8 game against the New York Giants.

As always with big gridiron games, the Chargers and the San Diego Police Department remind fans to be on the lookout for fraudulent tickets. SDPD officers, both uniformed and undercover, will be present at Qualcomm Stadium Sunday monitoring ticket transactions among fans.
