Chargers fans hoping to watch Sunday’s game on TV can breathe a sigh of relief. The game won’t be blacked out.
It will be shown live on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. (on CBS) as the Bolts host the Jacksonville Jaguars.
As of Tuesday, more than 5,000 tickets were still available. But an alliance between Union Bank, Donovan’s Steak & Chop House, KFMB, the Sycuan Band of Kumeyaay Indians and the Brigantine Family of Restaurants guaranteed the purchase of enough tickets to lift the NFL’s local blackout on games that aren’t sold out.
Tickets purchased by the groups will be given to local youth organizations and the Armed Services YMCA.
Some tickets still remain for those who want to see the game in person. They can be purchased on the Chargers website or at Qualcomm Stadium.
Of course, if you do go, don’t expect a close game. The Chargers are favored by 13 points over the winless Jags.
