Seahawks-Chargers Exhibition To Be Blacked Out

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Chargers say their exhibition opener against the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday night will be blacked out on local TV.

The game wasn't close to being a sellout by 72 hours prior to kickoff. The game will be blacked out within a 75-mile radius of the stadium.

The team said Wednesday that approximately 6,000 general-admission tickets remained unsold.

This is San Diego's first exhibition blackout since 2006. The team warned that there could be regular-season blackouts. The last Chargers' regular-season game that was blacked out was in 2004.

NOTE: CBS 8 will be airing a delayed-broadcast of the game at 10:30pm, Saturday night following the News 8 Special Edition news cast. Please visit the CBS 8 Program Schedule for more info. Also, a re-broadcast of the game will be aired on Sunday 11:30pm.
