If they don't sell those tickets by 3:00 p.m. (Arrowhead Time), the game won't be shown on TV. This warning shot happened last December when the Chiefs traveled to San Diego, although the number was about 1,500 tickets then.
I know there are some Chiefs fans in San Diego who plan to sit down on Sunday and see a Chiefs game that may not be able to. That would be pretty frustrating. Perhaps this is your heads up that getting a ticket may be your only way to see it, if you live in San Diego.
For the rest of us in Kansas City, the game will be televised as normal so no worries there.
(Then again, we may not want to watch the Chiefs after what happened in San Diego last year.)
Here's agood story from about a year ago on the Chargers blackouts exploring why they're cropping up.
